I'll believe it when he goes on IR

The Star claims Freeney is done for the year. Or rather, the headline says that. The text of the article is less certain. We thought this was true of Dallas Clark last year as well (different injury I know), but he did make it back. Earlier this season, it was said that Eli Manning had a separated throwing shoulder and was out for weeks, and maybe the season; he played that Sunday. Injuries are weird, and Freeney might be out, but let's just see what the team does. If they keep him off IR for a week or two (something they can't afford to do because of the number of guys hurt), it says they still have hope. Otherwise, we'll know by the weekend.

UPDATE: I guess I believe it. It's official; he's on IR and is done for the year. Weeeeeeelll, that sucks.

Demond Sanders: This team has spent the past two weeks proving that they don't believe in excuses. Unfortunately they didn't win either of those games, but they made their point nonetheless. I still think they can beat New England and win the Super Bowl. Simeon Rice can be this year's Booger McFarland. The ex-Buc who enters mid-season to help his old coach win it all with a new team. Or he could be worthless. . .

So this means he is done for both the regular and post season?

If that is the case...it may be over, guys.

Simeon Rice might be a good addition. He knows Dungy, and as I understand, the two like and respect one another. Maybe being with a playoffs-destined team will help Rice and Rice will help the team stay playoffs-destined.

I heard a wailing sound today, and it turns out the sky really is falling...

Ah shit, get well Dwight.

he is done for the rest of the year, postseason included. I guess we'll finally know just how valuable he is. If everyone else comes back, we'll be ok. If this is the tip of the iceberg, we won't. That's life in the NFL.

Off-topic, I've heard rumors (from Dolphins fans, which is why I'm asking experts for verification) that Marvin's injury is worse than disclosed and might actually end his career. Anyone?

*sniffle*

look way down, a few weeks ago--these rumors were populated by espn. the colts went on to outright deny the report and say they've received no such medical advice.

Re: Harrison, the phrasing of the Colts' response makes me think that they're ducking the truth.

I suspect Harrison is effectively done, and that makes me very, very sad. He deserved better than to have his career ended while blocking for a running back.
