Freeney Done for the Season?

Freeney bears down on Rivers  

The Colts may have suffered a potentially  fatal blow to their hopes to defend their title, as defensive end Dwight Freeney’s season is apparently over.  According  to  a story late  Tuesday night on  the website of the Indianapolis Star,  the three-time  Pro Bowl selection will robably need surgery to repair damage  to  his left  foot. Freeney left  in the fourth  quarter of the Colts’ 23-21 loss to the Chargers on Sunday night with the injury.

The Colts’ defensive star tried a spin move on a pass rush early in the fourth quarter,  but fell to  the turf. He limped off the field, and was taken to the locker room in a cart.  The  only player  in  club  history with  four  consecutive double-digit  sack  seasons,  Freeney is  Indianapolis’  all-time  sacks leader.  He  has 60  over  his  career,  including 3  1/2 this season,  and 31 forced  fumbles in his six  seasons.  A  first-round draft  choice of  the  Colts in  2002 and  three-time Pro  Bowl  selection,  the  Colts signed  the  27-year-old  to  a six-year,  $72  million contract in July, making him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.
