Colts Safety Active Against Bengals
INDIANAPOLIS – Bob Sanders is back.

Sanders, the Colts' two-time Pro Bowl safety, was declared active for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium shortly before kickoff, while center Jeff Saturday was among eight Colts players deactivated, the club announced.

Sanders, the 2007 Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year, missed the last three games with a knee injury. Saturday also missed last week with a calf injury.

The Colts' other inactive players Sunday:

Linebacker Tyjuan Hagler, middle linebacker Gary Brackett, linebacker Rufus Alexander, tight end Jamie Petrowski, wide receiver Roy Hall, defensive end Curtis Johnson and defensive tackle Keyunta Dawson.

Rookie Jamey Richard will start a second consecutive game in Saturday's place, with defensive tackle Antonio Johnson making his first NFL start for Dawson and linebacker Buster Davis making his first NFL start for Brackett.

Brackett and Dawson each had started the first 12 games of the season.
