Troubling news out of Indianapolis today as Colts SS Bob Sanders is once again sidelined with an injury.  He will undergo elbow surgery, sidelining him indefinitely.

This is especially bad news for the Colts, as Sanders is one of three players in the Colts' secondary currently injured.

Sanders, arguably one of the Colts' best defenders, made his season debut recently after missing training camp, preseason and the first five games of the regular season while completing his rehabilitation from off-season knee surgery.

He suffered an injury to his left elbow in a recent game against San Francisco.  The oft-injured Sanders recorded three tackles and an interception before leaving the game.

After seeking advice from a noted surgeon, it was determined that orthopedic surgery was required to repair Sander's elbow.  

It is unsure how long the former NFL defensive player of the year will miss, but speculation on message boards has Sanders out for the remainder of the year.
