The Colts have ruled out S Bob Sanders (biceps), WR Anthony Gonzalez (ankle) and LB Kavell Conner (foot) for their Week Four game against the Jaguars.
Gonzalez and Sanders have not played since the season opener. Conner underwent surgery Tuesday morning to repair a fractured foot. Gonzalez continues to rehab his ankle.
The way we see it
The Colts are unique in their Tuesday injury reports, letting the media know one day earlier than most teams who will miss the upcoming game. Ruling guys out so soon does not speed up the rehab process, as none of these three will practice all week. QB Peyton Manning has survived without Gonzalez, possessing plenty of other weapons. Sanders is still not on injured reserve, meaning the Colts are confident he can play again at some point this season.
