Freeney hopes to play Sunday

Defensive end nursing torn ligaments in right ankle

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. ó Dwight Freeney continues to hold out hope, despite nursing torn ligaments in his right ankle, that heíll be able to see some playing time Sunday night against the New Orleans Saints.

Freeney was hurt in the final minutes of the Indianapolis Coltsí 30-17 AFC Championship game win over the New York Jets. He has not practiced since he initially incurred the injury and said Tuesday that he does not expect to see any work in the days leading up to Super Bowl XLIV.

ìItís safe to say that I probably wonít. Iíll probably stay off of it and just get ready,î Freeney said Tuesday during the Coltsí Media Day event at Sun Life Stadium (formerly Dolphins Stadium).

Right now, the three-time Pro Bowl selection is waiting to see if the swelling and soreness in his ankle can be relieved in the limited time available.

ìThe ankle is pretty much day-to-day. Every morning I wake up hoping (it will be better). Itís all right, I donít know if I can stretch it way out here (lifts leg). Itís just day-to-day. Hopefully toward the end of the week it starts to get better. It still has a little bit of swelling left, trying to get it out,î he said.

After posting a team-high 13.5 sacks this past season, it doesnít look too promising that heíll be in the starting lineup against the Saints. Playing at all remains a toss-up.

ìThatís going to be a decision thatís going to be later on in the week. Itís kind of early. This happened (two weeks ago), so we definitely have some recovery to go,î he said. ìItís going to be a decision made by our coaching staff come Friday, maybe Saturday, (as to) how much time Iím actually going to be playing.îù

  • Will Saints reach point of no return? To say that the Indianapolis Colts hadn’t learned their lesson in the team’s previous Super Bowl appearance would be putting it mildly.

  • images_sizedimage_035073535 Peyton vs. the Saints Peyton Manning has always been a hero to long-suffering football fans in Louisiana. After all, he has deep roots in the area. His father, Archie, played quarterback for the New Orleans Saints and has stayed on to be one of the team’s radio voices. He remains as much of an icon in New Orleans now as he was during his playing days.

  • Colts' Mudd looking to go out a winner Howard Mudd knows that he only has a few days left in a storied National Football League coaching career.

    Mudd announced his retirement during training camp and he really means it this time. The former NFL offensive guard — widely considered as one of the best offensive line coaches in the league — retired briefly last summer over concerns about the NFL’s new pension plan.
