After nearly two weeks of speculation the Colts announced that RE Dwight Freeney is active for Super Bowl XLIV.
The news is not very surprising and earlier today it was reported that Freeney was walking around without a limp and wasn’t showing any signs of being in pain.
Frankly I wouldn’t be surprised if the whole story was made up by some combination of ESPN and the Colts front office.
The Colts do have some people who won’t be playing, K Adam Vinatieri, G/C Mike Pollack, DT Fili Moala, OT Michael Toudouze, WR Sam Giguere, TE Colin Cloherty, DE Ervin Baldwin, and DL John Gill are all listed as inactive.
Colts kicker Matt Stover will become the oldest player in Super Bowl history during tonight’s game.
