Colts punter Rigoberto Sanchez has been diagnosed with cancer and needs to have a tumor removed. Please pray for him.

Colts punter Rigoberto Sanchez has been amazing this season, but he just revealed on his Instagram that he has cancer.

Sanchez has been one of the best punters in the NFL. He has played at a high level this year starting all 11 games.

“Like I said before, it’s always God’s plan and it will always be bigger than my plans,” Sanchez wrote on Instagram. “So grateful to be surrounded by doctors that helped me catch the cancerous tumor before it spread all over my body. I will be getting surgery on Tuesday and I know that it will not be an easy bump on the road, but I know I have my amazing wife supporting me along with family, coaches, and friends reaching out.”

“Unfortunately, there are things you can’t control in life and this is one of them. No plans or preparation would have gotten me ready for this kind of adversity, but like I told my wife, we can’t flinch. Keep striving to come back stronger than ever,” Sanchez wrote. “Makes me sick that I’ll have to miss some time playing beside my brothers, but I know they will hold it down. I will be watching. Love y’all.”

The Colts will likely be looking to add a punter at this point. It is sad, because Sanchez has been a stud.
