Demond "Bob" Sanders has played all of his seven seasons in the NFL on the Indianapolis Colts, making the Pro Bowl twice, but he has never played a full season. There is no doubt about Sanders' playmaking ability on the field, but his ability to stay on the field is highly questionable.
The injuries began as a rookie in 2005 as, even though he was a backup, his debut in the league was ended by injuries to his knee and foot.
