The most important thing the Indianapolis Colts need to do now should be to make sure all the starters will be healthy enough before the Super Bowl game against the New Orleans Saints. With more a week left for the game, they still have time to make it.
Starting defensive end Dwight Freeney is one of the focuses as he has missed two consecutive days of practice because of a sprained right ankle. Good news is that Colts Coach said Freeney is coming along in his recovery and team president Bill Polian is confident that Freeney will put on his Colts jersey to play in next week’s Super Bowl games.
Other injured starters who missed Thursday practice include starting cornerback Jerraud Powers and starting safety Melvin Bullitt. Powers sat out with a left foot injury that caused him to miss Sunday’s AFC Championship game against the New York Jets, and Bullitt did not practice because of a knee injury.
