Reggie Wayne caught 3-of-5 targets for 23 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.
Wayne had another bad drop in this game and now has nine this season. He does not have more than five receptions since Week 5 and has not surpassed 35 yards receiving since Week 11. Wayne could perhaps be playing in the final regular season game of his career Week 17 against the Titans. Dec 21 - 8:09 PM

The Indy Star suggests Reggie Wayne (triceps) might have his snap count reduced over the final two weeks of the regular season.

The Colts already backed off Wayne a bit in Weeks 14 and 15, playing him on just 75.6 percent of the snaps. Now they've clinched the AFC South and have almost no shot at a first-round bye. So resting Wayne in order to get him 100 percent for the Wild Card game makes plenty of sense. Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks will have roles against the Cowboys Sunday, with Moncrief ticketed for far more snaps.

Reggie Wayne caught four passes for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Texans.

Wayne played through his bumps and bruises, setting a franchise record for games played as a Colt with 209. But he once again was a liability, losing a fumble and failing to separate or do anything after the catch. If the Colts were smart, they'd rest Wayne ahead of the playoffs.

Reggie Wayne (triceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans, as expected.

There's been no sign from the Colts that this is a "ceremonial" start as Wayne breaks the franchise record for games played. It's certainly a concern for the volume of boom-or-bust upside WR3 Donte Moncrief. The Colts inactives: OL Joe Reitz, G Hugh Thornton, CB Jalil Brown LB Henoc Muamba, C A.Q. Shipley, OL Andrew McDonald and LB Jerry Hughes.

Reggie Wayne (triceps, probable) refused to blame his recent poor play on injuries.

"If I'm out there playing," Wayne said, "I'm good." It is a noble position for Wayne, but it is simply not true. Wayne was clearly hampered by what is reportedly a torn triceps last week against the Browns, dropping three passes and only corralling one of his eight targets. Wayne will play this week, but he is not worth a look in any fantasy leagues.

Reggie Wayne (triceps) participated in Wednesday's practice.

Wayne appears on track to play despite a torn triceps that has rendered him highly ineffective for the past three weeks-plus. Wayne doesn't normally practice on Wednesdays. Coach Chuck Pagano explained the Colts are "trying something a little different" this week. If Wayne plays Sunday against the Texans, he would break Peyton Manning's franchise record for games played (209). He would also throw a dent into Donte Moncrief's fantasy outlook.
Dec 10 - 3:02 PM

Coach Chuck Pagano was noncommittal Monday when asked if the Colts might shut down Reggie Wayne (torn triceps) for the season.

It sounds like there's a real chance Wayne is shut down, at least for awhile. If so, playing time would open for impressive rookie Donte Moncrief, whose physical 27-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter Sunday set up T.Y. Hilton's game-winning one-yard TD. Despite seeing 22 targets over the past three weeks, Wayne has managed receiving lines of 3-10-0, 4-31-0, and 1-5-0.
Dec 8 - 4:14 PM

Coach Chuck Pagano said Reggie Wayne is battling knee and elbow injuries in addition to a torn triceps.

It looks like a case of a coach coming to the aid of a player after he had another terrible game. Wayne had one catch on eight targets against the Browns even though Joe Haden was locked on T.Y. Hilton. We don't doubt that Wayne is banged up, but the fact of the matter is he's a 36 year old wideout one year removed from an ACL tear. It shouldn't surprise anyone that he's struggling.
Dec 7 - 8:58 PM

Reggie Wayne caught one pass for five yards in Week 14 against the Browns.

Wayne was the worst Colts receiver in this one, continually losing battles with Buster Skrine, K'Waun Williams, and Justin Gilbert. He was targeted eight times, but doesn't deserve as much usage going forward. Wayne will be tough to view as anything more than a WR4 when the Colts face the Texans in Week 15.
Dec 7 - 5:21 PM

Reggie Wayne admitted there is a "real" chance he retires following the 2014 season.

"It’s tough, it really is," Wayne said. "You have to decide if you want to make that sacrifice again. A lot goes into it." The Colts may make the decision for Wayne. In the final year of his contract, Wayne has been adamant he will only play in Indianapolis. If the Colts decide to move on following the season, Wayne would likely decide to hang up his cleats. Wayne's 14,202 career receiving yards are the most among active players and the eighth-most all-time.

Reggie Wayne caught 4-of-5 targets for 31 yards Week 13 against the Redskins.

Andrew Luck threw behind Wayne on his first-quarter interception, but the two were in sync for the rest of the game. Unfortunately, Wayne no longer has the athletic ability to turn his catches into meaningful fantasy points. He is a weak PPR play moving forward.
Nov 30 - 5:01 PM

The Indianapolis Star says "it's becoming more and more apparent that (Reggie Wayne) has lost a step."

Wayne was not good against the Jags on Sunday, catching 3-of-9 targets for 10 yards and failing to separate. It's what we'd expect out of a 36-year-old wideout one year removed from blowing out his knee. Wayne isn't going anywhere as a solid possession receiver and security blanket for Andrew Luck, but he's capped at the WR3 level. He's averaging just 4.0 catches for 44.2 yards with one touchdown over the last five weeks.
Nov 24 - 10:52 AM

Reggie Wayne caught three passes for 10 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

Wayne drew a team-high nine targets, but didn't look like himself. The 36-year-old needs a day off, as he can't separate. Wayne could have easily had two touchdowns, but had a short, high pass go through his fingertips in the end zone. Andrew Luck later over-threw Wayne down the left sideline on a would-be 77-yard score. There were no Jaguars within five yards of Wayne. Wayne has a plus matchup at home against the Redskins in Week 13.
Nov 23 - 5:12 PM

Reggie Wayne caught five passes for 91 yards in Sunday night's Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Wayne had a solid game despite being covered by Darrelle Revis. He was able to beat Revis on a 46-yard catch in the first half, but was otherwise limited to underneath routes. With T.Y. Hilton held to just three catches, Wayne had a team-high nine targets. Averaging 81 yards over the last two games, Wayne will be a starting option in Week 12 against the Jaguars.
Nov 17 - 1:23 AM

Reggie Wayne caught four passes for 70 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Giants.

Wayne drew 10 targets in his return from his elbow injury. Sporting a bulky brace, Wayne looked refreshed after the week off to rest his elbow and tired legs. He now gets to go on the bye before taking on the Patriots in Week 11. On Wayne's 40-yard touchdown, he walked right up the left sideline untouched into the end zone. He's a solid weekly WR3/4.
