Dwight Freeney to Undergo MRI Exam on Right Quad
Freeney told FanHouse he was rushing Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner on a 3rd and 5 play at the Arizona 45-yard line when he was held by offensive tackle Levi Brown. Warner completed an 8-yard pass to Steve Breaston, but Brown was called for holding.
And Freeney said he felt his right quad pop.
"I came around the left side -- the tackle held me; it was one of the holding calls," Freeney recalled. "And I felt something kind of pop in my quad."
Freeney, who has four sacks this season, left for the locker room and did not return.
He said it's too soon to tell how badly the quad muscle is injured.
"It feels OK, but I'm not running on the field," Freeney said. "I won't know until probably Tuesday."
Colts president Bill Polian had a concerned look on his face as he waited for Freeney to finish a television interview. Polian accompanied his standout pass rusher out of the locker room and directed him toward a waiting golf cart. Freeney loaded his bags onto the cart and he was driven to the Colts' team bus.
