29-year old DE Dwight Freeney might not be ready to play in the Super Bowl due to a torn ligament in his right ankle. His game is speed so if he has a bad wheel I don’t see him helping the Colts much by playing. This also hurts Robert Mathis on the other side of the Colts’ D-Line as the Saints will no doubt double team him all game long. If the Colts can’t get a good pass rush on Drew Brees then this game has become a lot more interesting. Freeney has 7 tackles and 1 tackle for a loss in his two playoff games so far. He played in 14 games for the Colts during the regular season and he made 24 tackles, 3 tackles for a loss, forced 1 fumble, he defensed 1 pass and he had 13.5 sacks. The Colts can’t afford to be without Freeney in the Super Bowl, period.
