Colts’ Freeney shakes injury, plays in Super Bowl


Colts DE Dwight Freeney started Sunday’s Super Bowl against the Saints despite missing practice the last two weeks because of an injured right ankle.

The Saints took the ball first in the game, and Freeney trotted on the field with the Colts’ defense. He picked up a sack with 10:03 left in the second quarter, taking down Saints QB Drew Brees for a 7-yard loss. New Orleans had a good drive going to that point and had to settle for a 46-yard field goal.

Freeney injured his ankle late in the AFC Championship Game against the Jets. He led the Colts with 13.5 sacks during the regular season, even after missing two games.
