INDIANAPOLIS — Injury list -- Inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman returned to practice Thursday and there is a chance that he will play Sunday.
Freeman suffered a thumb injury in last week's loss to Houston. He was held out of Wednesday's practice as he watched from the sidelines with his left hand wrapped up.
The former Canadian Football League standout was able to go through a full practice on Thursday. His status for the Chiefs game won't be known until game-time.
“I’m going to do everything I can to be out on that field," Freeman said after Thursday's workout.
The rest of the Colts injury report included seven players who wee held out of practice: running back Delone Carter (ankle), inside linebacker Kavell Conner (hamstring), nose tackle Antonio Johnson (ankle), center Samson Satele (ankle), cornerback Teddy Williams (knee) and outside linebacker Robert Mathis (rest).
Offensive tackle Winston Justice (biceps) and safety Tom Zbikowski (knee) saw limited work. Outside linebacker Dwight Freeney (ankle), safety Joe Lefeged (knee), quarterback Andrew Luck (knee) and nose tackle Martin Tevasue (illness) joined Freeman in full practice.
Toughing it out -- Angerer has been playing all season with an injured foot, which he initially hurt in the Colts' opening preseason game.
After undergoing surgery, he missed a few weeks at the beginning of the season and then returned for a limited role. Due to injuries to Conner and Freeman, Angerer's playing time has steadily increased in recent weeks. The former Iowa linebacker may have to have additional work done on his foot at the end of the season.
Despite the pain and soreness in his foot. Angerer continues to play.
“Yeah, I’ll be ready to go. On game days, you just play. Then you wake up the next morning and then you feel it. You don’t feel it too bad on game days," he said Thursday. "With Kavell [Conner] going down, obviously I have to play more. But yeah, I think [playing time has] been increasing and I’m feeling fine.”
