Sanders and Freeney to Start Camp on the PUP List

Freeney

The Colts are hoping that their defense will get a lift as both Dwight Freeney and Bob Sanders will be ready to go by the teams opener vs the Bears in September.  For now though, it looks as if with camp closing in the pair will start training camp on the PUP list.  Mike Chappell of the Indy Star reports today that they, along with Tyjuan Hagler, who tore his pec working out, will be on the list at the start of camp.

Both Freeney and Sanders feel themselves that they will be ready to go for the opener, and the Colts will take their sweet time in making sure they are both 100 percent at the start of the regular season.  The team cannot afford for either of those players to be out long-term.  As for Hagler, he may miss up to two months, which puts him on a time table to be ready to go right about for the opener as well, which would be a lift.

The Colts defense was very good in 2007, allowing 279.7 yards per game.  Many talk about the Colts offense, but take into account the defense last season only allowed four games where their opponents scored over 20 points.  Pretty good, but again, being healthy could be their biggest key this season to make it even further into the playoffs.
