News flash: Bob Sanders, the former standout Colts safety, is injured. That is news sure to warm the hearts of Colts fans who were shocked the Indianapolis NFL team traded him, but let it be said Colts GM Bill Polian knows what he’s doing.
Sanders was an excellent NFL Pro Bowl-level player when he was on the field. The trouble is, during the last four years it seemed he spent more time off the field with an injury, than on it. It was so much becoming a habit, that the Colts had to trade Bob, and with sadness, because he was so key to their playoff and Super Bowl success over the past 10 years.
So, the San Diego Chargers get Sanders and think they pulled a fast one on the Colts.
Well, all that changed today, and just four games into the 2011 NFL Season.
A knee injury he sustained in the second game of the season become aggravated, and led to Sanders being placed on the season-ending injured reserve list today.
He’s out for the year.
