how long can i keep ground meat?

It was refrigerated for a week....purchased from a butcher so meat was not previously packaged. Forgot it was in the fridge for that long and then promptly tossed it in the freezer. Do you think it's still okay to eat or is it not worth the risk?
I am not a huge meat eater so not that familiar with how long stuff stays good. I did sneak a quick peek at it and it was definitely browning a bit, but was wrapped really tightly so i don't think too much oxygen would have gotten to it.

Help? Toss or cook?

TIA.
