Draft Scout Greg Zuerlein News
01/05/16 - K Greg Zuerlein is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in March, but the long-range strength of his game was missing this season.
Zuerlein made just five of eight attempts from 40-to-49 yards and three of nine from 50 yards or more. In Sunday's loss to the 49ers, he missed from 52 yards and had a game-winning 48-yard attempt blocked in overtime. That was the third blocked attempt this season. The others were from 40 and 50 yards.
Two of his 50-plus misses were from 63 yards and he did hit a 61-yard kick, but his other misses were from 48 and 53 yards.
On the kick that was blocked Sunday, Zuerlein said, "I thought I hit that pretty well. Obviously, if I was too slow in my operation, or what happened on the block, we'll see on film tomorrow."
Zuerlein also said he thought he hit the 52-yard miss that went wide right "pretty well." That came in the fourth quarter with the Rams leading 16-13. He added, "The first one that I missed, I thought I hit it really well. It was going straight pretty much the whole way and then at the end it just kind of fell off. I haven't really ever had a kick like that, where I thought, 'OK, that's in.' And then it didn't go in."
Monday, head coach Jeff Fisher said there will be another kicker in camp next summer, assuming Zuerlein is re-signed.
"Greg has been asked to do a lot of things, kick a lot of long field goals," Fisher said. "Obviously, his numbers aren't what we hoped they would be. We have confidence in him, but in all likelihood there will probably be some competition with him in camp next year, which will make him better."
12/09/15 - K Greg Zuerlein, who has missed the last two games because of a hip injury, participated in in practice Wednesday and "kicked well," according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Zuerlein will rest Thursday and then kick Friday with the hope he will be to play Sunday against Detroit. Zuerlein said his hip had "been tight for a couple weeks" before injuring it on the Friday before the Nov. 29 game at Cincinnati. Zuerlein said Wednesday he felt "pretty good" and acknowledged that the coaches don't want me to kick as much (in practice) as I have been."
12/07/15 - K Greg Zuerlein, who suffered a hip injury the Friday before the Week 12 game against Cincinnati and was inactive Sunday. Head coach Jeff Fisher said, "I am optimistic that Greg has a chance to come back and kick Wednesday and then kick Friday and then we'll see where he is."
12/03/15 - K Greg Zuerlein (right hip) did not practice Wednesday, but is on schedule to hopefully kick at the end of the week.
11/30/15 - K Greg Zuerlein (hip flexor) was inactive Sunday against the Bengals and it's unknown if he will be available for the next game against Arizona. Said head coach Jeff Fisher, "We're just going to see how he is later in the week. It's probably unlikely that he kicks any time before Friday, maybe Saturday. We don't want to stress the injury.
