Colts Release Freitas
Today I spoke to Makoa Freitas to see if there was any chance that he would be on the field on Monday, or shortly thereafter based on how well he was recovering from his foot injury. During a Colts Q&A interview back in Janaury, Freitas described how the injury occurred.
"I was playing right tackle and was blocking the defensive end," he explained. "One of the Bengals defenders fell on my foot, and it kind of got rolled up on from behind. I felt sort of a popping in my foot. It started swelling up really fast. And then they took x-rays at halftime and I found out I had torn the lisfranc ligament. I had done the same thing in college, it's the second time."
His doctor told him that he had never seen anyone tear the ligament twice. Freitas required two surgeries during the offseason with a projected six-month rehab. But the foot has been coming along slowly, and during our phone conversation today he confirmed that his full recovery is still "kind of a ways off."
Freitas believes that news certainly had to play a role in the Colts decision to release him. Despite the news, he remains optimistic that once he is fully healed, he will still have a bright future with an NFL club.
