Colts DE Dwight Freeney has been operating without an agent for the past year, since former rep Gary Wichard died. Now he's hiring CAA to represent him. That suggests the expected. Freeney has 1 huge year left on his contract and doesn't make a ton of sense for a team clearly in full rebuilding mode. New representation indicates that Freeney is about to either renegotiate his deal with the Colts or head elsewhere. At 31, Freeney played 114 fewer snaps last year than in 2010 and registered just 8.5 sacks. He still ranked 9th among 4-3 DEs in pass-rushing performance, according to Pro Football Focus. His career is winding down, but Freeney can still produce. His situation will be interesting.

DE Dwight Freeney is listed as questionable for Sunday but should be good to go. Freeney has been dealing with an abdominal injury but practiced in full on Friday. The Colts don't practice truly questionable players. Freeney is a boom-bust IDP proposition, though Chiefs LT Branden Albert has performed well so far. That adds to Freeney's risk.

Tuesday is media day for the Super Bowl, and Colts DE Dwight Freeney (ankle) was the center of attention.  Freeney confirmed that he won't practice at all this week, but he didn't rule out playing on Sunday.  "Hopefully, towards the end of the week it starts to get better," he said. "The decision (of whether to play) will come later on. It's kind of early now."  Freeney will be a game-time decision.

Colts DE Dwight Freeney (abdomen) is expected to play tonight, according to NFL.com's Michael Lombardi.  Freeney's presence will make life harder for David Garrard, who wasn't much of a fantasy option anyway.  He and #1 WR Mike Sims-Walker are no more than low-end options for tonight's game.
