Freeney misses practice with high ankle sprain, but Collie is cleared

Dwight Freeney AP

Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney recently said he spends 35 percent of his time thinking about the fact that he’s in a contract year.  He could have 100 percent of his time to ponder that reality over the next few weeks.

Freeney suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday’s loss to the Bears.  He missed practice on Wednesday in advance of Sunday’s game against the Vikings.

As Judd Zulgad of 1500ESPN.com points out, the Colts are characterizing Freeney as day-to-day, but at least one report indicates he could miss two weeks.

Also missing practice on Wednesday were linebacker Pat Angerer (foot) and guard Joe Reitz (knee).  Tackle Winston Justice (concussion) participated on a limited basis.

The good news is that coach Chuck Pagano said receiver Austin Collie, who suffered a concussion last month in a preseason game at Pittsburgh, has been cleared for contact.  Pagano also said that receiver T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is ready to go.  Both fully participated in practice on Wednesday.

    Highly unlikely he comes back from a high-ankle sprain so quickly, especially given that his best pass-rushing move (the spin move) puts a ton of strain on his ankles.

    He’d be less effective in game 2 and it might worsen the injury. It’s a long season – might better to give him a game off to fully heal.

    Wow, what loyalty…. I can’t think of a more productive defensive player in Colts history, but you want to cut him, in a contract year, when the season is unlikely to bear any fruit anyway. Real nice. I hope he doesn’t read this site.
