Freeney hopes to play Sunday

Defensive end nursing torn ligaments in right ankle


ìEverything imaginable. Iíve thrown everything at it. All different types of techniques, Iím doing everything. Just trying to do the best thing to get that thing feeling as good as possible, so I have the best chance of playing,î he said.

ìIím doing a little, bit of everything. You name it, Iíve probably done it. Chiropractic, from oxygen chambers, to regular therapy, to ice, to everything, everything.î

Yes, even a hyperbolic chamber.

ìIíve actually had a chamber for a while, I had it for like two or three years. It helps me, it helps me a lot with blood circulation. Iíve had injuries in the past, and itís definitely helped,î he said.

Freeney left for South Florida earlier than the rest of his teammates, arriving on Friday. He lives in the Miami area during the offseason.

ìI have people out here, different chiropractic people. The main thing about me coming down here early was, if I took the flight on Monday, the swelling is still there. Coming down here on Friday, it gives me a couple extra days for the swelling to go down from the flight,î he said.

While he has not ruled out getting a pain shot before Sundayís game, that possibility remains remote.

ìI havenít really talked about that to be honest with you. It really hadnít been part of our discussion as far as ìwhat if this thing doesnít get better to where you think you can play without doing that.î I guess thatís a conversation me and the docs are going to have to have on Saturday, if itís even safe to do such a thing,î Freeney said.

ìIíve never taken a shot for an injury like that, no.î

Ironic injury ó The fact Freeney was hurt with about two minutes left in the Jets game, as he tried to avoid New York rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez, is especially hard to accept.

  • 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.

    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.
