Colts’ Freeney might miss Super Bowl with ankle injury

Colts All-Pro DE Dwight Freeney is in serious jeopardy of missing Super Bowl XLIV because of an ankle injury.

Freeney is dealing with considerable ligament damage and looks doubtful to recover in time for next Sunday’s game against the Saints, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Freeney will continue to receive heavy treatment on the ankle, and he has proven to be a remarkable healer at times in the past. However, things don’t look good medically this time. Freeney suffered the injury late in last week’s AFC Championship Game against the Jets and hasn’t been able to practice since.

UPDATE: The Colts issued a statement, saying Freeney has a “low, third-degree ankle injury. Similar to a basketball (ankle) injury. We feel he’ll be questionable (for the game).”
