Amid rumors that Bob Sanders had suffered a season-ending injury, the Indystar is reporting that Bob Sanders practiced with the team during a short Monday session. There had been speculation, mostly coming from ProFootballTalk.com, that Sanders had a torn biceps and would miss the remainder of the season, but that speculation appears to be unfounded. Sanders was injured during the first quarter of the Colts’ 24-34 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday, and never returned to the sidelines. The defense suffered a severe drop in play, especially against the run, once Sanders left the game, so his availability for Sunday, and beyond, would provide a big boost for the team. We’ll update you as more information becomes available.
Maybe Mike Florio is a genius, after all. Adam Schefter is reporting that Bob Sanders has a torn biceps and is out indefinitely. He did say indefinitely or the season, but was not definitive about the Colts placing Sanders on the injured-reserve list on this time. Once again we’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Bob Sanders saw Doctor to the stars James Andrews on Wednesday for a second opinion. Apparently that opinion was, “Let me cut your arm up,” as Sanders underwent surgery on his torn biceps. The Colts released a statement stating that Sanders would be out indefinitely, but would remain on their active 53-man roster.
