Marvin Harrison And Dwight Freeney News
Former Syracuse Orange and current Indianapolis Colt wide receiver Marvin Harrison is expected to be in training camp and ready to go when it begins on Friday morning, according to Colts head coach Tony Dungy. Coach Dungy is quoted as saying, “The last I heard from our doctors’ meeting was Marvin would be ready to go when we get there,’’ Dungy said this afternoon. “He’s been running and feeling good and everybody, including Marvin, is really enthused and optimistic about how that’s gone.’’ He also discusses how he plans to be conservative and cautious with Harrison and he has ben told they expect no criminal actiosn against him in light of the recent shooting that involved a gun that he owned. This is good news for Colts fans and those of us who like to draft him high in fantasy leagues. However in the same piece in the Indy Star by Mike Chappell, he says Dwight Freeney is expected to be listed as physically unable to perform list when camp opens due to a foot injury. I know that defense missed him last season and not sure about the status of the foot but hope it heals soon. If those two are healthy, along with quarterback Peyton Manning who will sit at least 4 weeks following knee surgery, this team could again contend for the best record in the NFL. I hope both are healthy and play the full season. Maybe it's just me but I don't root for any injuries even if your facing my favorite team, I would rather see the best team loaded and win if they earned it.
