Though many Rams players and coaches welcomed the short week to forget about their season-opening loss on Sept. 12, punter Johnny Hekker probably could have used an extra day to recover.
Hekker punted 10 times in the Rams’ 28-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Monday night game.
“I think any punter would agree that 10 times is a couple too many,” Hekker said. “Of course, getting to contribute, getting to leave a little print on the game is fun. But I’d rather be scoring touchdowns and holding for field goals and PATs.”
Hekker said he is looking forward to Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks at the Coliseum.
The Washington native has been involved in several noteworthy special-team plays against the Seahawks.
In 2014, Hekker completed a fourth-down pass to Benny Cunningham to keep alive a drive that clinched a victory at St. Louis.
