If you mean 'freeplay' at the steering wheel - not likely. A worn idler is apparent by observing from underneath while someone turns the steering wheel slightly. While driving, bump steer, rut steer, and vagueness in the feel are symptoms caused - among others - by a worn idler.

Freeplay at the wheel rim is due to looseness in the steering box, steering coupler, pitman arm ball joint, or various combinations of worn steering pivots.
