Broncos K Matt Prater Placed on IR

Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater has been placed on injured reserve, the team announced.

Rookie center Jeff Byers has been signed off the practice squad to replace Prater on the 53-man roster.

Prater was 16-of-18 on field goal attempts this season, but has missed the last two weeks with a right groin injury. Steven Hauschka was signed to handle the duties while Prater was sidelined, and has connected on five of his six field goal attempts.

In 46 games for the Broncos over the last four seasons, Prater is 71-of-87 on field goal attempts, 99-of-101 on extra points, and has 67 touchbacks. Prater is scheduled to be a free agent after the 2010 season.
