Colts Safety to Miss Third Consecutive Game
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Bob Sanders will miss a third consecutive game Sunday.

Sanders, a two-time Pro Bowl safety, has been deactivated for the Colts' game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday, the club announced shortly before kickoff.

Sanders, the 2007 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year, has missed the last two games with a knee injury. He did not practice this week.

The Colts' other inactives are:

Defensive back Brandon Foster, linebacker Buster Davis, center Jeff Saturday, tight end Jamie Petrowski, wide receiver Roy Hall, defensive tackle Daniel Muir and defensive end Curtis Johnson.

Second-year safety Melvin Bullitt will start for the eighth time this season in Sanders' place, and rookie center Jamey Richard will start in place of Saturday.
