Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters says he is '100 percent' after suffering a calf injury in Week 3.

The All-Pro defender made the comments on Wednesday when meeting with the media.

"I feel hella good," Peters said. "Coach wouldn't have let me go out there and play if I didn't feel good. What do you want me to say? I feel 100 percent? Yeah, I do. I feel 100 percent."

Peters has not missed a start, despite dealing with the ailment. But he has struggled in coverage. He was torched in Week 5 by Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett on a 39-yard touchdown.

He has 15 tackles, two passes defensed and a 50-yard interception return for a touchdown in his five starts this season. Peters joined the Rams in March in a trade from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fellow All-Pro Rams cornerback Aqib Talib is on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Pro Football Focus ranks Peters as its No. 106 cornerback out of 111 players at the position.
