Colts' Caldwell says Freeney is 'healing'


Indianapolis Colts Coach Jim Caldwell called Dwight Freeney's playing status day-to-day, saying Monday that the defensive end is "healing" from the ankle sprain he suffered late in the AFC championship game.

But Caldwell said it remains possible that the injury will keep Freeney from playing in Sunday's Super Bowl against the New Orleans Saints.

"He hasn't been practicing," Caldwell said at a news conference soon after the Colts' arrival at the Fort Lauderdale airport. "If he's not practicing, we're preparing as if he's not going to play. And then if he gets in there, we'll do something."

The Dolts need to be worried about who is healthy on the Saints defense.

Who dat gonna have their pants on the ground?

Hint: He wears blue and white and his name is Manning.

Re: Article:Indy Media really worried about Freeny

hopefully this thread will stay on the topic...


If Freeney plays, he will be limited, but a limited Freeney is still better than say, Grant.

I agree with everyone who is not reading too much into Freeney not practicing. He's a DE: there's the QB, there's the fast RB, there's the faster one, and there's the inexperienced OT you are going up against. Practice over.

Freeney in / Freeney out won't change our game plan. Teams make adjustments on the fly every game.

Freeney my bet will be at maybe 60-70% come game time, will see action in for sure long yardage passing downs. It will hurt the Colts to a degree, but they can still get the job down and keep the Saints to fewer then 28 pts.

That may work, but I'm guessing if you keep us to 28 pts, our D will keep you guys to less. Hell, even 1 pt less works for me.

Since the Dallas trick where Ware wasn't supposed to play, I don't believe anything they say. (And then there was the Viking with the headaches). Ha! Freeney will play. No letting our guards down on that one!

His injury takes more than 2 weeks to heal. He may be one bad dude but, unless he has something against Kryptonite he's gonna be hampered. I hope he tries to play and can't.....the psychological edge would then go to the Saints.

Right now the Colts are already planning defensive schemes without DF in the game, so anything they can get from him will be a bonus. Not having him will hurt, but we will be able to make changes that will still cause the saints issues.
