According to Dan Dakich, of 1070 The Fan radio network, Dwight Freeney is "fine and will play in the Super Bowl."
He would not reveal his source and stated that this is coming from his contacts through the coaching world and not the mainstream media. He seemed extremely confident and cited that the only thing the Colts had officially said was that Freeney was Questionable for the Super Bowl.
ESPN stated that Freeney was 'hobbled' as he walked through a crowded media room in flip flops. To me, he wasn't hobbling around, we was weaving his way through a crowded room. Wearing flip flops does not seem to support the idea that he has a serious ankle sprain.
It seems like either the reporters were premature in their story, have a bad source, or are flat out worng about Freeney. Either way it looks like someone isnt being completely truthful.
Hopefully Freeny will be able to play and be effective come Sunday.
