Dwight Freeney isn’t certain if he’ll be healthy enough to play in what will be an emotional game for the Indianapolis Colts.
But he knows this much: Sitting out, even for a second, is more than he can stand.
Maybe that’s why he’s a traditionally fast healer.
“I can’t stand it. Half of the time when I get hurt, that’s why you see me with a three-week (projected down-time) injury, I’m back after one week,” said Freeney, who suffered a high left ankle sprain in Week 1 and hasn’t played since. “The sideline, I can never get used to.”
