The Indianapolis Colts released two-time Pro Bowl safety Bob Sanders on Friday, according to team owner Jim Irsay.
"We have released Bob Sanders today," Irsay said in a statement released by the team. "We thank Bob for all his incredible contributions, from his Super Bowl interception to his Defensive Player-of-the-Year honor."
Sanders, the 2007 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and a two-time All-Pro selection, sustained a torn biceps in his right arm in the Colts' first game of the season. The Colts placed Sanders on injured reserve in December.
