CULVER CITY, Calif. -- Colts safety Bob Sanders is injured yet again, reportedly suffering a torn biceps muscle that could cost him the entire 2010 season.

The NFL Network cited a source confirming the injury and a Wednesday visit to renowned orthopaedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews that could determine if surgery is necessary.

Sanders suffered the same injury to his opposite arm last season, costing him all but two games. Andrews performed that surgery on his left biceps.

Since being named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 2007, the 29-year- old Sanders has appeared in just nine games due to a myriad of injuries that included knee surgery.

The two-time All-Pro was signed to a lucrative extension after recording 132 tackles, 3 1/2 sacks, two interceptions and six passes defended in 2007.

Sanders is in his seventh NFL season after Indianapolis made him a second-round pick in 2004 out of Iowa. In that time, he's appeared in more than six games only twice due to injury.
