Polian Show: Freeney should be ok


Oehser has the run down

Indianapolis Colts DE Dwight Freeney sustained a sprained ankle in the AFC Championship Game, but likely will play in the Super Bowl.

Freeney, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, could miss practice time this week, but will undergo treatment, and Colts President Bill Polian said on his weekly radio show Monday, “I don’t think it will have any real effect on the Super Bowl, especially if we get that treatment going as quickly as possible.”

Polian, speaking on his weekly radio show in Hank FM 97.1 in Indianapolis on Monday, also said the status of rookie CB Jerraud Powers remains uncertain after missing Sunday’s AFC Championship Game with a foot injury.

“He’s progressing,” Polian said. “It’s the rate of progress, is what we’re going to monitor.”

Polian also said S Antoine Bethea re-injured his back against the New York Jets Sunday but should play in the Super Bowl, and WR Reggie Wayne had swelling on his knee, but also is expected to be available when the Colts play New Orleans in Super Bowl XLI on February 7.
