Jim Caldwell is now "not certain" that Bob Sanders will start in the season opener against the Jaguars

Not to sound too negative, but here is another swift kick to the gonads (from Mike Chappell at the Indianapolis Star):

"I’m not certain,’’ coach Jim Caldwell replied this morning when asked if he was confident Sanders would be ready for the Sept. 13 opener against Jacksonville. "I would say that if I felt that way. I’m really not certain.

"The most important thing is to get him healthy.’’

It is the continuing merry-go-round with Bob. He's healthy. He's not. He's healthy. He's not.

What we hope is that Bob will get clearance to practice soon and play as soon as possible. But, after living through the Marvin Harrison and Ryan Lilja knee fiascoes the last two seasons, it's tough to have any faith. Also, Bob practically lives on the injury list. He has yet to play a full 16 game season in his entire career. While I love Bob and think he is a great player, if he cannot stay healthy, the Colts need to think about dumping him.

He is simply not worth the salary cap space if he is this hurt, this often.
