Colts safties


Recommended Posts

Indianapolis Colts safety Antoine Bethea has cracked a bone in his right hand, leaving him on the sideline for both of Indianapolis' practices Wednesday.

 

Coach Jim Caldwell did not give a timetable for Bethea's return. Caldwell said Bethea would be fitted for a cast and would return when he can play while wearing the cast.

 

Losing Bethea is a blow to a Colts defense that is still missing safety Bob Sanders. Caldwell said Wednesday morning he wasn't sure Sanders would be back for the regular-season opener. Sanders had offseason knee surgery to clean up the same knee that kept him out of 10 games last season.

 

Bethea went to the Pro Bowl in 2007, the same year Sanders was the NFL's defensive player of the year.

Yeah, I was fully prepared to bump Bethea up in the rankings with the news that Bob Sanders is off to go see Dr. James Andrews... but then heard shortly thereafter that Bethea is in a cast and HC Caldwell has no timetable for his return.

 

So, for now, I'll leave them ranked where they are, assuming Sanders will miss his requisite handful of games and Bethea should still be able to put up decent numbers, even if he's out/limited to start the season.

What about Melvin Bullitt - he did really well in replacement when Sanders was hurt before - i would think he would be holding some good value.

He will have value if in fact Sanders and/or Bethea are out for extended spells. Otherwise, it might be a situation where all three of 'em (and maybe a fourth) tease you just enough to get you points on a semi-regular basis. I, for one, am avoiding the situation altogether. There are a host of DBs that are injury-free and consistent performers.
