While all the attention has been on the quarterback the Colts are facing this weekend, they got some good news Friday about the guys trying to stop him.

According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, the Colts will have both safety LaRon Landry and linebacker Jerrell Freeman back on the field, per coach Chuck Pagano.

Freeman was cleared after his concussion Monday against the Chargers, while Landry’s missed the last four games with an ankle injury.

Having a pair of active, physical defenders back in the middle of the defense is going to be a much bigger factor in Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s day than anything his old boss might be saying.
