Colts safety Sanders' status hasn't changed, agent and team say

Agent Tom Condon and the Indianapolis Colts denied an Network report that there's some concern that safety Bob Sanders might not play again because of injuries and he had renegotiated his contract.

Condon, who represents Sanders, told *The Indianapolis Star* on Monday that the two-time Pro Bowl safety, who has struggled with shoulder and bicep injuries in the previous two seasons, doesn't have any new problems. Condon also said Sanders' contract situation hasn't changed.

A team spokesman agreed, saying, "Nothing has changed since June."

That's when Sanders, who played in just eight total games in 2008 and 2009, finally returned to practice with the Colts. At the time, Sanders said he was healthy and ready to play.

"It's fun to get out there and compete and enjoy the weather," said Sanders, the 2007 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. "This is the first time I've been able to do OTAs in years. I've always been rehabbing a lot and spending a lot of time in the training room. It feels great to not go into the training room and going into the weight room."

Sanders signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract extension in December 2007.
