They say the only certainties in life are death and taxes. Something else might have to be added to the list: Bob Sanders and Anthony Gonzalez getting hurt for the Colts.
When it comes to football betting, the best wager of all would have been that Bob Sanders could not last the entire year for Indianapolis. There’s a reason why we haven’t written about Bob Sanders for three years, and it’s his health.
Checking out his football stats, you’ll see that Sanders has been in the league since 2004 but has only reached double-digit in games played twice. The oft-injured safety played only eight games in the last two years. For his career, Sanders has played just 48 of a possible 97 regular season games. He’s been bothered by biceps and knee injuries most recently, but ankle and other arm injuries have also cost him playing time.
