Is it possible to disable filterable/sortable for an existing grid column via observer or layout update?
You can achieve using _prepareColumns() method,
$this->addColumn('Your column', array(
'header' => Mage::helper('module')->__('Object'),
'index' => 'item',
'filter' => false,
'sortable' => false
