Sanders missed his third straight game with an injured right knee while Saturday sat out with strained calf as the Colts (7-4) tried to extend their winning streak to five games.
The NFL's defensive player of the year last season, Sanders did not make the trip to Cleveland. He missed five games earlier this season with a high ankle sprain. Melvin Bullitt started in Sanders' spot.
A three-time Pro Bowler, Saturday was replaced by rookie Jamey Richard, who started the first two games this season when Saturday was out with a knee injury. Rookie Jamey Richard started for Saturday.
