Freeney exits injury report, Mathis is questionable

If the Colts get both of their starting defensive ends healthy at the same time, their defensive line would wreak even more havoc on opposing offenses.

This week, Dwight Freeney has fully recovered from an oblique strain that kept him out of a game against the Texans and limited him against the Titans.

But Robert Mathis, the AFC defensive player of the month of November, is now questionable with a quad injury.  Last week, Mathis was probable, due to a neck injury.

Four Colts are out:  running back Donald Brown (chest), defensive back Aaron Francisco (ankle), receiver Anthony Gonzalez (knee), and kicker Adam Vinatieri (right knee).

A total of seven Colts are questionable, and eight are probable.

The Broncos are getting very healthy.  Safety David Bruton (thigh) is questionable, and three are probable:  safety Josh Barrett (shoulder), safety Brian Dawkins (ankle), and quarterback Kyle Orton (ankle).

    I wouldn’t expect Freeney and Mathis to get consistent snaps together again until the playoffs roll around. Without a healthy pass rush, that Colts defense is toast.

    cmon Florio, I have been asking you this for the past one month
    you have got sources informing you about the stuff going on in Cleveland, Seattle, Buffalo, etc.
    can you not find out why Anthony Gonzalez is not on the IR despite missing 13 weeks ???

    He previously mentioned the Colts keeping him for the playoffs. Believe listing him on IR would kill him for the season and no playoffs, so theoretically that is the only reason Colts have to keep him off IR.

    Clady is a very tough assignment for a healthy defensive end. One of the best tackles to come along for a while.

    @chuckd89: Freeney & Mathis have played on and off together for the past bunch of weeks and there was no upset.
    Try again.

    Woohooo!!! Freeney is the last ‘elite’ feather for Clady’s headdress. He picks his teeth with the speed guys.

    No upsets, but they’re just scraping by. The three teams they’ve played that actually had a winning record were beaten by a total of 6 points.
    It’s clear the Colts are ripe for an upset.
    How’s that for a try.
