Colts DL Dwight Freeney won't play Sunday

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder @cponder7 will have reason to feel a little more comfortable in the pocket Sunday against the Colts. That's because Dwight Freeney @dwightfreeney won't play. Freeney has a sprained ankle and although head coach Chuck Pagano won't clarify what type of sprain is it, ESPN's John Clayton tweeted Friday that Freeney has a high ankle sprain.

Fantasy Analysis:

If the reporting is correct, you should expect Freeney to miss more than this game, probably a few more. You should not want to start Ponder on your team, but maybe he'll have an extra second or two to find Percy Harvin @Percy_Harvin with Freeney not breathing down his neck. Doing some fantasy gymnastics here, the Colts' defense may be even worse for the next few weeks than it showed in Week 1. That should mean a lot more passes from Andrew Luck to Reggie Wayne @Reggie_Wayne87 and the rest of that crew.
