According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, via ProFootballTalk.com, Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney has a torn ligament in his right ankle.
That shouldn’t stop from Freeney playing though.
Schefter added that it will be hard for Freeney to play if he plays at all.
Can you say cortisone.
There is only one game left in the season and it is the biggest game of the entire year in the Superbowl.
The fact of the matter is that back cortisone is used all the time to help players with a great deal of pain.
Last year Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played last year’s Superbowl with broken ribs.
To get a player to not play in the Superbowl the injury would have to be so serious that a player wouldn’t be able to use the limb
In the end don’t worry Colts fans Freeney will play.
