ESPN: Indianapolis expects Sanders back in 5 to 6 Weeks

INDIANAPOLIS -- Bob Sanders isn't healthy enough to play yet. Indianapolis hopes he's back before mid-October.

Yes, the Pro Bowl safety avoided opening this season on the physically unable to perform list, a move that would have kept him out another six weeks and a move that new coach Jim Caldwell acknowledged means Indy anticipates having the 2007 NFL Defensive Player of the Year back sooner.

"The biggest thing was that we felt he [sanders] was going to be back inside that five- or six-week window," coach Jim Caldwell said Monday. "He's making progress, he's coming along."

Sanders had offseason knee surgery and has been the key cog on the Colts' defense over the past four seasons.

If this guy could ever stay healthy...

This is why I don't consider him when discussing top safeties in the NFL.

It's like Gregg Williams used to say about not being worth anything in talent if you couldn't be held to accountability and availability. Sanders is a really talented safety, but playing in 45 of 80 games is pathetic.

And according to this:

Sanders is due 7 million dollars this season. 7 mil for a guy that might play half the year healthy. Crazy.

Agreed. 100 percent.

How can you be considered one of the best if you're rarely on the field? I feel the same way about Westbrook. He's phenomenal when he's healthy, he just can't find the field often enough to be considered one of the best.
