Colts place Sanders on IR list
The Indianapolis Colts placed safety Bob Sanders on the injured reserve list Friday, ending his season.
Sanders reportedly suffered a torn biceps during last Sunday's triumph over the San Francisco 49ers and was to undergo surgery.
The former NFL defensive player of the year continues to be plagued by injuries.
Sanders missed the first five games of the season as he recovered from offseason knee surgery.
The unbeaten Colts also placed cornerback Marlin Jackson on the season-ending IR list, the Associated Press reported. Jackson suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Wednesday's practice.
Another Colts cornerback, Kelvin Hayden, is to miss as much as four weeks because of a knee injury, according to the Indianapolis Star.
Also, wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez underwent arthroscopic knee surgery, further delaying his return. He has not played since the opening game of the season.
