No Freeney in Colts' walk-through

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla.--Defensive end Dwight Freeney did not participate in the Indianapolis Colts' walk-through Saturday on the day before the Super Bowl.

According to a pool reporter, Freeney spent the entire walk-through on a golf cart. Freeney was seen walking gingerly but did not have his severely sprained ankle wrapped, according to the pool reporter.

Freeney hasn't practiced since being injured late in the AFC championship game. The Colts have called Freeney's injury a third-degree ankle sprain and have listed him as questionable on the official injury report.

Freeney said Thursday that he planned to test his ankle with some activity Friday or Saturday. That didn't happen, unless the Colts chose to test Freeney's ankle completely out of public view.

Colts Coach Jim Caldwell said Friday that the condition of Freeney's ankle was "trending in the right direction," but he stopped short of saying that Freeney would play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Raheem Brock would start in Freeney's place if Freeney is unable to play or limited to part-time duties.

WHO ISN`T SICK OF HEARING ABOUT FREENY`S ANKLE? THIS WHOLE SENARIO IS BEING CREATED AS GAMESMENSHIP..TO WORRY THE SAINTS...WHO COULD CARE LESS. NO ONE HEALS A LIGAMENT INJURY IN DAYS IN ORDER TO PLAY WELL ENOUGH TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

If as I suspect Freeny is not a factor..than I believe the media will have wasted more time over the last week on one ankle..than any injury in the history of modern football..and you all look like idiots for doing so.
