Freeman says he expects to play against Oregon State

UW running back David Freeman, who missed the Arizona game with pains in both ankles, said today his injuries are getting better and he plans to play on Oct. 18 against Oregon State.
Freeman didn’t make the trip to Arizona, saying he has issues in both ankles, but particularly in his right ankle, which was the major reason he sat out.
He said doctors still aren’t sure what is wrong.
“It’s just bad ankles,” he said. “We really don’t know what the cause of it was. The trainers don’t really know. I’ve just been having a lot of pain. I’ve been trying to play through it but the pain overwhelmed me and I just cou just been havinig a lot off pain been trying to play through it but the pain overhwlemd me i just couldn’t go.”
Freeman said he had been having pain for a few weeks and initially the thought was it might be due to the way his ankles have been taped, something he didn’t do previously — he said it’s mandatory here. He said they stopped taping his ankles and the pain remainied “so that wasn’t (the cause).”
He said he played with the injury in the Stanford game but that it got gradually worse so he finally was pulled out.
He said now he is trying to work himself back gradually.
“It still hurts so I’m taking it slow until I get back to 100 percent so I don’t have to be out anymore,” he said.
He said it was tough watching and that “I’m planning to be available to play (against Oregon State) but I don’t know if I’m going to start or not.”
The toughest part of sitting out was watching the team lose, he said.
“I feel we can beat any team,” he said. “It’s just things don’t click the way we would like them to when we are out there. Stuff goes wrong. But I feel with everybody getting back healthy we have a better chance of getting our first win.”
