Update: 2/6/09: If you are looking at this post, chances are you got here from Google looking for information on Dwight Freeney’s status for Super Bowl Sunday. This post refers to an injury from earlier this season. Follow the link for the latest Dwight Freeney injury update.
Two weeks in a row I have idiotically picked against the Indianapolis Colts. And two weeks in a row the Colts have me look like an idiot.
After dismantling Miami in the Dolphins’ home opener last Monday night — despite having the ball on offense for less than 15 minutes — the Colts took the Arizona Cardinals to the woodshed last night on Sunday Night Football, winning 31-10.
The win could come with a price, however, if Dwight Freeney’s right quadriceps injury turns out to be serious.
The latest injury update on Dwight Freeney is that he “heard something pop” and is awaiting the results of an MRI.
None of the reports about Freeney’s injury seem particularly positive or negative, so Colts fans will just have to wait until later today or tomorrow to see how their dominating rush end is doing.
Freeney has four sacks on the season and has led the Colts’ defense to three pretty solid performances with SS Bob Sanders out of the lineup.
I’ll update this post as soon as I hear anything further.
Update 9/29: Dwight Freeney is expected to miss 2-3 weeks, meaning he should be back after the Colts’ bye week.
