THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein‘s strained foot doesn’t appear to be a serious injury, coach Sean McVay says.

The Rams expect Zuerlein to be able to kick in the Super Bowl next week, McVay said Thursday.

The right-footed Zuerlein strained his left foot during the Rams’ victory at New Orleans in the NFC championship game last weekend. He still hit a 48-yard field goal with 15 seconds left to force overtime, followed by a booming 57-yard field goal to win the Rams’ first conference title in 17 years.

Zuerlein has been wearing a walking boot on his left foot recently, but McVay says the team is only being cautious.

The Rams face the New England Patriots next Sunday, Feb. 3, in Atlanta.
