Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney will enter Super Bowl Sunday having not participated in anything remotely football-oriented since the AFC Championship game.
Freeney, continuing to nurse his torn ankle ligament, missed his sixth straight day of practice Friday. He remains questionable for Super Bowl XLIV.
Colts cornerback Jerraud Powers (foot) did return to practice, albeit on a limited basis.
Colts receiver Reggie Wayne left practice early with an “aggravated knee injury,” according to pool reporter Peter King of Sports Illustrated. The injury isn’t nearly as severe as it sounds, though. King writes that he does “not see it as a big story.”
Wayne is listed as probable and should be fine for the game. Powers may contribute in some sub-packages. Freeney figures to be limited at best.
