Colts LB Freeney injures ankle in 1st quarter

CHICAGO (AP) -- Linebacker Dwight Freeney, one of the few holdovers on the Indianapolis Colts' heavily remade roster, is questionable to return after injuring an ankle in the first quarter against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Freeney was hurt on a Bears scoring drive when he was blocked low and appeared to roll his ankle. The Bears went on to score on a 1-yard run by Michael Bush to tie the game at 7.

Freeney and Robert Mathis, Pro Bowl defensive ends who were among the league's most feared pass rushers, have moved to linebacker this season as the Colts shift to a 3-4 hybrid defense.
