Dwight Freeney missed a second straight day of practice Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts DE/OLB Dwight Freeney (ankle) missed another day of practice Thursday, reports Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. Freeney left Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears with an apparent ankle sprain, and there is no clear word on when he should be back. Head coach Chuck Pagano insists that he is "day to day", but some speculate that he might not be back until after the Colts' bye week in October.

Fantasy Impact: We obviously won't know for certain until the injury reports come out Friday, but for now, we'll assume he's out Sunday. That leaves a huge hole in an already thin defense that got carved up by Jay Cutler and company in Week 1. The Colts play Minnesota this week.
