The Colts are going to have to try to beat the Vikings without their most experienced pass-rusher and one of their best pass-catchers.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano just announced, via Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, that outside linebacker Dwight Freeney would be out this week because of an ankle injury.
Pagano also listed wide receiver Austin Collie as doubtful.
Freeney’s injury could cost him more time, but Collie’s situation bears monitoring. His record of concussions make him a concern, and if he’s sitting two days in a row after being cleared, it’s not likely a good sign.
