DE Dwight Freeney sat out the Colts' final walk-through Saturday prior to Sunday's Super Bowl XLIV, watching from a golf cart. WR Reggie Wayne, however, returned to the field after having aggravated a season-long right knee injury during Friday's practice.
Freeney, who tore a ligament in his right ankle during the AFC championship game Jan. 24, had indicated earlier that he would test his ankle either Friday or Saturday, but there was no indication from the Colts whether that had happened. Colts head coach Jim Caldwell said Freeney's ankle had improved from Friday to Saturday, but he declined to say whether or not Freeney would play Sunday.
Freeney's ankle was not wrapped, and he received no treatment for it during the 40-minute walk-through.
Besides Freeney and Wayne, Colts CB Jerraud Powers had a light workout Saturday after returning to practice Friday, nearly three weeks after having undergone surgery on a fracture in his left foot.
"He (Freeney) and Powers both are better than yesterday," Caldwell said. "It's still day-to-day."
