Caldwell confirms Freeney has a low 3rd degree sprain

46

"[H]e has a third degree sprain and he's questionable at this point," Caldwell said. "So he's working extremely hard at trying to get it back in shape. He's down in Miami. The report is accurate in that sense. He is down in Miami. He is certainly getting treatment and things of that nature. We have one of our guys down there with him from our staff and also he's working with some other folks as well." And it sounds like Freeney ultimately will play. "[T]he thing about Dwight I'd like to say to you, I think you guys understand, is that there's been many weeks where he's had some situations that have looked like he would not be able to play but he's been able to battle through it and not only play, but play well," Caldwell said. "So he's a quick healer and we're praying for the same thing to happen this week as well." Freeney is a quick healer in large part because he's willing to do whatever the training staff wants him to do when it comes to treatment, a pain-in-the-ass process that requires at times around-the-clock annoyance. So if anyone can overcome a third-degree ankle sprain and perform at a high level, it's Freeney.
