Will Carroll Reports Dwight Freeney Out With a Torn Quad

New, comments

Via Stampede Blue, Dwight Freeney to miss this Sunday:

This Twitter was sent from Will Carroll at injuryexpert:

Freeney has a torn quad. Waiting on MRI to see severity but sounds bad. Def out for Week 4.

Again, no confirmations as yet, but it sounds bad.

Freeney is one of the best defensive ends and the best pure Tampa 2 end in the NFL. His ability to pressure and disrupt supercedes his awesome ability to sack and force fumbles. The Colts pass defense lives on that disruption and will be hamstrung without Freeney. You don't root for injury, but his loss certainly improves the Seahawks chances of winning this Sunday.
