Just days after signing on with the Seattle Seahawks, veteran pass rusher Dwight Freeney will be playing this Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll made it clear the team has “no hesitation” to play Freeney, who just signed a one-year deal on Tuesday night.

Freeney was signed, in part, to fill the void left by the absence of Cliff Avril. Avril is out for the season with a neck injury, and there have been reports his injury could be career-ending.
