A key player for the Los Angeles Rams in their NFC title win made a surprise appearance on the team's injury report this week.

On Wednesday, the Rams listed starting kicker Greg Zuerlein as "DNP" on the injury report with a left foot injury.

The left foot is Zuerlein's plant foot.

NFL writer Ryan Kartje indicated that him being DNP does not preclude him from playing in Super Bowl LIII just yet, as the extent of the injury has not been revealed.

Zuerlein has been the Rams' starting kicker since 2012.

In 2017, Zuerlein earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors after going 38-for-40, including six field goals for 50 yards or more.

While his accuracy took a dip in the 2018 season, Zuerlein demonstrated his value to the Rams on the biggest stage.

In the NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints, Zuerlein kicked a 48-yard game-tying field goal with 15 seconds left in the game to force overtime.

In overtime, Zuerlein nailed a 57-yard field goal to win the game that could have been good from a lot father.

Should Zuerlein be less than healthy for the Super Bowl, the Rams may have to go back to one of two starting kickers they used earlier this season when he was injured.

Cairo Santos went 5-for-6 on field goals and missed one extra point attempt in two games.

Sam Fickens went just 1-for-3 on field goals but made all ten of his extra point attempts in two games.
