Is he in or out for this game?
everything I have read or heard indicates he is out. But you never know what will happen.
he don't wanna get stiffarmed by T.O. or ran over by barber
their injury list is so long...Like 8 guys for Questionable
lol our whole team has been banged up all season, but no one has noticed beceause we are still 9-0.
He was listed as questionable before the NE game and he played....and played well. But, he had practised at least once that week. AFAIK, he has not practised at all this week, and talk is that he will not play.
That will be a big plus for the Cowboys. He is a solid player, but he's also a leader and the entire defense plays better when he's on the field. Rumor has it that the Colts don't want to take the chance of aggravating his knee on a non-division game.
Who really knows in these days of 3 page injury lists?
FWIW, Stokley is probably out also.
There are only a handful of players that truly are injured.
Dungy is taking a page out of the Belichick handbook for injury reporting, which basically states declare half your team "questionable".
Coach Parcells believes Sanders will play and he probably will. Stokley and Brackett are the only other injuries of any significance.
I loved him at Iowa and could pull up a draft thread or two here saying why. Loved his game that was at least a half foot bigger than his frame...his energy, smarts, stamina, and willingness to 'engage'.
But til this week I had no idea Sanders had become so popular among your fan base. I read some articles in your press this week and he seems to be regarded every bit as highly as #31 is here.
You got a player to be proud of in him, for sure.
It was 32 listed as injured, wasn't it, before the Pats game? :laugh2:
Sanders is a HUGE fan favorite in Indy. We call him "Hitman". The biggest problem seems to be his size. The guy goes 150% everytime he steps on the field and hits guys who are much bigger than he is like a Mack truck. He has no "go easy this time" switch. Consequently, he gets hurt....a LOT.
I think management is frustrated with this knee injury. He had arthroscopic surgery over a month ago, and the knee seems to continue to swell and cause pain. I don't think wild horses could have kept him out of the NE game, but it seems that they'll hold him out this week and continue to wait-and-see.
This is the list:
Of the significant players, Brackett, David, Fletcher, Harper, McFarland will probably play.
Doss, Mungro, Reagor, Sanders, Simon and Stokley will not.
He had a nice game vs the Pats....what was it, 10 or 12 tackles? Cracks me up to see him take down a guy the size of Maroney.
Love the player, and hope he recovers for next week's game...but as you pointed out, a player who's barely 5'8" and 200 pounds and hits like Sanders is going to be missing some time...
Here's to a good game tomorrow - one which I expect will go down to the wire, with a Dallas win. The malaise creeping up on you last week vs the Bills....the Cowboys are better suited to exploit it.
The guy who does the site, football injuries.com ( or something like that) was on SIRIUS today and said he has confirmed that Sanders will NOT play against Dallas. He does their fantasy football show on Fridays and seems to have good contacts and reliable info. Take it for what its worth.
You could be right. I don't take any game for granted this year with the Colts. They seem to rise or fall to the level of their opponent. They played two great back to back away games against NE and Denver, and then barely beat the Bills and Titans. Go figure.
