    Thought he would have lasted longer than that!

    Really seems to struggle to stay healthy; be interesting to see if he is still a Colt this time next year (if we have football).

    Bob Sanders out indefinitely

    Per Schefter, torn bicepts.

    Wow. That would mean that he will have missed half of all games in his entire 7-year career!

    Small guy + bit hitter = lots of injuries. Another guy who is a great player who can't stay on the field.

    And this is why the NFL is a War of Attrition, and why we can overcome the injuries to Bodden and Warren.

    Hey, come on now!

    Being Crabled is like the Suma Cum Laude of MoGU... Bob hasn't earned that honor quite yet ;)

    Guess the mediots will now treat the Colts future defeats in a more sympathetic and understanding manner, unlike how they treated our losses back when Harrison was out.

    Well, that sucks too. I don't like to see injuries. It looks more and more likely that the Colts gave Sanders the biggest safety contract at the time for him to play 9 games.

    Wow.
    A what-could-have-been story.

    When he was on the field, he changed the game. Speed, range, and a big hitter.

    Given his absence, the Colts have done a good job of developing other safeties.

    I assume that's about it for him. Another lengthy cycle of rehab, and a high probability that his frame just cannot take the force he generates.

    Well that's a shocker. Frankly, if the Colts didn't have a contingency plan in place for this, then it's on them at this point. Sanders' annual season-ender is just a fact of life.

    He was one of those difference makers it seems, a guy who seemed to single-handedly shore up the Colts run defense while he was in. We'll see a lot of games like the Houston game (at least running it) now I feel.

    Shefter hasn't had a good track record of 100% accurate stories lately...

    Re: Shefter reports Bob Sanders may be done for the season !

    That's really a shame. he plays the game the way it should be played. But that position is such a brutal one, Sanders, Reed, Polumalu, how many times have we seen those guys hurt. They are true warriors, but it seems hard to stay healthy when you play that position. I have my fingers crossed for our own warrior Pat Chung. Nobody can keep up 16 tackles a game.

    You mean the one I just watched AS respond to on Monday night countdown, saying that he and Kraft had talked on the phone and AS never reported that they had a deal....
