The Colts’ Reggie Wayne will miss the rest of the season after suffering an ACL injury during Sunday night’s win over the Denver Broncos.
Wayne went down in the fourth quarter when he tried to come back and catch a low pass. He wasn’t hit on the play but couldn’t get up after planting his right foot into the turf.
Wayne is a big time receiver, so this is bad for the Colts. Last week, he became the ninth member of the league’s 1,000-catch club. The pro-bowler had started 189 consecutive games, which is the longest streak among all active receivers in the league.
Coach Chuck Pagano didn’t answer the media questions on whether they would sign another receiver to replace Wayne.
