Jim Caldwell: Bob Sanders will play against the St. Louis Rams

OK, now we can remove the "likely" from "will play" when referring to Bob Sanders and his status for this Sunday's game. From John Oehser:

Indianapolis Colts S Bob Sanders will play against St. Louis Sunday, Head Coach Jim Caldwell said.

"He’s going to play," Caldwell said Friday morning.

So, unless Jim Caldwell is boldly lying to someone's face (which is unlikely), or Bob trips over his dog this weekend and re-injures his knee, we can expect to see #21 suited up and playing this Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome against the St. Louis Rams.

Just so people know, I am indeed a fan of Bob Sanders. What I am not a fan of is Bob Sanders on the injured list. I'm just plain sick of it. If Bob is healthy and ready to unleash his fury on opponents, great! However, for me, I cannot call Bob sanders a "great" player until I see him stay on the field longer and with greater consistency.
