Colts SS Melvin Bullitt out for the season with a broken shoulder

Bob Sanders is out, and now his replacement is out as well. ESPN is reporting that Melvin Bullitt is out for the season after breaking a bone in his shoulder, another blow for a defense that has struggled in parts of four games already in 2010.

Colts safety Melvin Bullitt, Bob Sanders’ replacement and the team’s special teams captain, is out for the season after breaking a bone in his right shoulder Sunday in Jacksonville, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Bullitt will have surgery in two weeks and be placed on injured reserve. Sanders already is nursing a biceps injury that will sideline him into December, if not for the season. The Colts are 2-2 after Sunday’s loss and 0-2 in the AFC South for the first time and injuries — besides the ones to Bullitt and Sanders — have been a big problem for Indianapolis this season.
