Indianapolis Colts linebacker Dwight Freeney is day-to-day following the high ankle sprain he suffered late in the first quarter against the Chicago Bears in a Week 1 loss. The Colts linebacker went to the locker room and never returned to action. The long-time Colt is one of the franchise's most important players as arguably it's best defender.
Fantasy Analysis: Freeney's Week 1 injury comes as a hit to a rebuilding Colts defense. The unit recently switched from a 4-3 to a 3-4 with returning personnel and really can't afford to have integral players missing time. The Colts defense does not currently have any fantasy value as is, and this bit of news does not help. If you are someone who plays defenses by-weekly, be sure to avoid the Indianapolis D/ST.
