The Indianapolis Colts are still waiting word on the status of one of their stars.
Head coach Jim Caldwell said in his weekly press conference Monday there is nothing definitive on an injury sustained by safety Bob Sanders. Sanders was hurt early in Sunday’s game in Houston when he landed awkwardly on his arm.
“We still don’t know the extent of the injury. Things could change and he could be back out there this week, as well. We don’t know that,” Caldwell said.
The coach said if Sanders misses an extended length of time, his staff is ready to make the necessary changes.
“It’s one of those things that is unfortunate if it does indeed occur,” he said. “We’ve had to make adjustments before at a number of positions, not only that one.”
Another major concern coming from Sunday’s 34-24 loss to the Texas was the Colts run defense, which gave up a team-record 231 yards rushing to Texans’ running back Arian Foster.
“Every year is different, but we’ve been a team that has gotten ourselves in position to stop the run,” Caldwell said. “I think with work – and we’ve got a lot of work to do – that we can get right back to that. We can stop the run.”
The Colts return to the field Sunday night at Lucas Oil Stadium, taking on the New York Giants at 8 p.m. on Channel 13.
