Freeman (ribs) did not practice Wednesday. Freeman recorded nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's game against the Falcons, so it remains to be seen when the 29-year-old may have injured his ribs. While his lack of availability at practice Wednesday is a bit alarming, his game-time status likely won't be decided until the end of the week.
Freeman (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports. Freeman was able to participate in practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday to guarantee his availability for Sunday's contest. The middle linebacker has racked up 36 tackles and a sack across five games this season.
Freeman is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints. When Freeman has been able to play, he's been a consistent tackling machine -- he's recorded tackle totals of 6, 10, 10 and 9 when playing 50+ snaps in a game. With the high-flying Saints offense set to take the field against the Colts on Sunday, Freeman could be in line for more gaudy tackle numbers this week.
Freeman (groin) was a limited participant in practice Thursday. Freeman appears to be on track to suit against the Saints in Week 7, but that designation likely won't come until after Friday's practice. The middle linebacker recorded nine tackles (six solo) against the Patriots last Sunday even though he was listed on the team's injury report all week.
Freeman (groin) didn't practice Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports. Freeman was able to play in Sunday's matchup against the Patriots despite an injury to his groin, so his practice status Wednesday doesn't necessarily indicate his availability this week against the Saints. That determination will likely arrive later in the week.
