The question of the week for the Super Bowl Sunday had been,"Will Freeney Play in the Big game?" This has been the talk for the past 2 weeks. Dwight Freeney came out of the NFC Championship game limping off the field. The first thought that it was a sprain, no big deal right.

The news gets worse, on Sunday it was being reported that Freeney has  has a torn right ankle ligament. There is a good shot that Freeney will be out on the field come Sunday. Most people it take time for an injury like this to heal.Freeney has been known as a freak when it come to healing. He heals quickly from injures that sideline many other NFL players.

This is why I call Freeney the Wolverine of the NFL. In the X-men comics, this person has this power to heal quickly.

Dwight Freeney is hoping to practice today leading to the Super Bowl. With this being said, Will Freeney play in the game? I believe that he will play in this game, but on a limited basis. He is the Colts primer pass rusher and he will get must of the attention passing down.

He is more likely to play more passing downs and more of a decoy to free up Robert Mathis on left side of the line. All of fan nation will see how much Freeney does play on Sunday.
