Source: Freeney might have suffered Lisfranc injury
ESPN ^ | 11/13/07 | John Clayton

Posted on 11/13/2007 6:16:00 PM PST by misterrob

The Indianapolis Colts already expect Dwight Freeney not to play for several weeks because of a left foot injury, but now there's reason to believe the Pro Bowl defensive end's season might be over.

Though more tests have to be completed for the team to make a final determination, a source said Tuesday that Freeney might have suffered a Lisfranc injury in Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers. If additional tests verify the initial diagnosis of the midfoot injury, the source said Freeney will need season-ending surgery.

Players who have suffered Lisfranc injuries, even those not needing surgical repair, have needed months to rehabilitate.

I don’t think the Clots can hope to beat the Patriots without Freeney. The only way the Pats could lose to the Clots would be if they beat themselves.

Colts are falling apart...wish I could say I’m sad about it.

Bill Polian makes it easy to not be sad about Colts misfortune.

Yep.I would be curious to know which team has the most “complaints” filed against them.
I’m sure the Dolts are right up there—
cranking up the heat,blasting in extra crowd noise, ect.
Never forget the 2005 AFC Championship game when the refs tried to screw the Steelers and give the game to the Dolts.
Last weeks ( 2 weeks ago) Pats/Colts game was the worst,one sided officiating I have ever seen.

I tried to do a google search on “complaints” filed against other teams and can’t seem to find anything yet.
Polian probably had google omit those search findings.....
I am curious what the deal is.

Hate to see this. Freeney is a class act and a good DE.

They might have trouble beating the Steelers with all the injuries they have now.

That explains spending the dough on Simone Rice.

Back in the day he was as good an edge rusher as anyone. He’s now a step down from Freeney.

‘Back in the day he was as good an edge rusher as anyone. He’s now a step down from Freeney.’

No disputing it. I suspect he’s a step up from what was available on the roster, obviously...or maybe if your a Colts fan, hopefully.

If your going to have a run of injuries, better it be mid season, then end of season.

Problem is that if Freeney does have a Lisfranc injury then he’s done for the year. You cannot replace him with a pick up like Rice. This will also negate Matthis a bit since you can chip him on the rush with a TE or RB and the QB has more time to throw. They pressured the Pats with the edge rush but without that the Tampa 2/press coverage doesn’t work. Receivers will get open after 4-5 seconds and especially so if you go with multiple receiver formations.

While the Colts lost the last two games, they have done so with more than 10 major starters out with injuries. And yet, they've lost by a handful of points.

If you look at the last two games, the Colts have actually played remarkably well. The Pats are playing at their best, with everyone healthy, and yet won by only 4. The Colts played the Bolts with 17 active offensive players, lost a couple of them during the game, and still played a better game than the Bolts up to the end.

Last year, when the Colts started losing, everyone claimed they were done, finished, over, and had no shot at the Super Bowl.

I'm a Colts fan, and I didn't expect much out of either game, and yet, I was impressed that, even banged up as they are, they kept the games extremely close. These were not 30 point blown outs.

If everyone is healthly by the end of the year, then the Colts will be extremely hard to beat.

No disputing what you wrote here. That said, Rice having avoided the pounding, just might surprise some people.

Just as an aside, what were your thoughts on last year’s AFC Championship game?
