So, one minute the AP is saying that DE Dwight Freeney has a foot sprain, and he will miss at least a month. This is consistent with Bill Polian's comments on his radio show. The next minute, we're looking at the cover of the Indy Star and seeing the headline Colts lose Freeney for rest of season.
Now, if you go to the headline and read it, you see a lot of speculation and not a lot of "Colts confirm that..."
The three-time Pro Bowl defensive end probably faces surgery to repair damage to his left foot, according to a source close to Freeney.
Like with all injuries, until I see an official announcement that Freeney is on IR, I don't assume anything. In all these injury reports, I'm seeing a lot of "probably" and "likely" added before the words "done for the season." Sounds like guess work, which isn't journalism.
