KEYS TO THE GAME
Saints: Saturday (knee) is out. OG Mike Pollak (knee) is out.
Colts: Freeney likely will open at his normal right defensive end spot and Raheem Brock at left end against the Bears. Colts head coach Tony Dungy said Robert Mathis would work in behind Brock and Josh Thomas behind Freeney. "Don't know how it's going to be," said Mathis, a 29-game starter the past two seasons. "We just play." ... Freeney missed the final eight games last season with a foot injury. He's eager to return. "I might get a little emotional," he said. "I'm not saying I'm going to cry, but I might hold it in or take it out on somebody." ... Rookies Justice and Richard aren't providing much insight on the Colts' center situation. Asked if he was looking forward to starting, Richard, who has worked with Manning in practice said, "There's no guarantee that's going to happen. Whether it's going to be myself or Steve, we don't know." Added Justice, "Come Sunday, we'll find out." ... While both players have seen work at left and right offensive guard during training camp and the preseason, it appears as if Johnson will now get the start at left guard while Federkeil will go at right guard against the Bears on Sunday night. ... Pollak will miss Sunday's game while recovering from an injury to his right knee. Pollak, though, did have a minor procedure on his left leg that is not impeding his return. ... WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder) saw limited work Thursday but is expected to be available for the Chicago game. ... DE Curtis Johnson (shoulder) had limited practice time Thursday. Johnson should be able to play against the Bears. ... S Bob Sanders was given Thursday off from practice. Sanders, though, will start Sunday night.
