The Indianapolis Colts and the agent for safety Bob Sanders are disputing a report about Sanders’ health and contractual status.
Although Sanders said in June that he felt great, Michael Lombardi of NFL.com reported this week that Sanders might never be able to play football again as a result of a ruptured bicep tendon suffered last year. The Colts, however, say they stand by Sanders’ comments about his health from last month.
“Nothing has changed since June,” a team spokesman told the Indianapolis Star.
Lombardi also reported that Sanders “reduced his contract,” but Sanders’ agent,
Tom Condon, told the Indianapolis Star that’s not true. Condon said he’s also not aware of any new injury issues.
So either Lombardi’s report is wrong, or Condon and the Colts are lying. We’ll be interested to see if Lombardi issues a correction, or if he offers any more details to substantiate his report.
