Reggie Wayne started the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night, but failed to secure his lone target.
Andrew Luck hit Wayne for a short completion on Indy's first play from scrimmage, but it was negated by a penalty on T.Y. Hilton back at the line. Wayne caught another first-quarter pass, but drew a penalty that got the Colts more yards, so they accepted. Wayne looked sharp coming off his ACL tear and remains a fair bet to lead Indy in catches this year. He's a quality WR3 pick. Aug 23 - 9:07 PM

The Indy Star's Stephen Holder says Reggie Wayne has exceeded his expectations in Wayne's return from an ACL tear.

Beat writer reports on Wayne have been glowing, even as the Colts limit his reps. Per Holder, the 35-year-old has "looked fresh and fast," and his "hands are as reliable as ever." If Wayne can keep this up, he should reemerge as the favorite to lead Indianapolis in catches. His ADP is in the middle seventh round.

The Colts will hold Reggie Wayne out of their preseason opener.

They're smartly managing Wayne's training camp and preseason workload after last year's Week 7 ACL tear. Wayne is also 35 years old and more than familiar enough with the offense. Expect rookie Donte Moncrief to get a ton of snaps.
Aug 4 - 1:07 PM

Reggie Wayne (ACL) has been "effortlessly snatching passes out of the air" at Colts training camp, and coach Chuck Pagano deemed his recovery "really incredible."

"I've done everything I've wanted to do," said Wayne, who is all systems go. "I've run every route." Three players in NFL history have topped 1,000 receiving yards after their 36th birthday, and Wayne appears on pace to become No. 4. (He turns 36 in November.) Beat writer reports on Wayne's practice play have been unfailingly positive. Whereas T.Y. Hilton's Average Draft Position is at the fifth-/sixth-round turn, Wayne is available in the seventh and eighth rounds of drafts.
Jul 31 - 5:44 PM

Reggie Wayne (ACL) said he's passed a physical and been cleared for camp.

Wayne is nine months removed from his tear and was reportedly ahead of schedule throughout his rehab process. He'll be gradually eased into camp work with an eye toward functioning as Andrew Luck's security blanket and possession receiver come Week 1. At 35 years old and playing in Pep Hamilton's stubbornly run-heavy scheme, there's not much upside here on Wayne's seventh-round ADP.
Jul 23 - 10:45 AM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano would be "shocked" if Reggie Wayne (ACL) wasn't ready for training camp.

The Colts have held Wayne out of OTAs, but he's been cleared for football activities. Indy has zero incentive to rush its veteran stalwart, but it sounds like there will be no reason to keep the training wheels on once camp rolls around. Fantasy players can draft Wayne as if he'll be 100 percent for Week 1.

Although Reggie Wayne (ACL) is not participating in OTAs, he has been cleared for football activities.

The Colts are taking it slow with Wayne, who is roughly seven months removed from his knee reconstruction. He's expected to take the field with his teammates when training camp opens on July 23. It's an aggressive timetable for a 35-year-old receiver that relies so heavily on sudden cuts and precision route-running, but people within the Colts are calling Wayne a "freak." We'd like to get a look at his progress in a preseason game before painting a rosy picture.
Jun 9 - 9:18 AM

Reggie Wayne (knee) is not participating in OTAs.

Wayne is seven months removed from ACL surgery and will likely be held out of next month's minicamp. He remains a candidate to open training camp on the active/PUP list, but is expected to be ready for Week 1.
May 30 - 8:46 PM

ESPN Colts blogger Mike Wells expects Reggie Wayne (ACL) to sit out next month's minicamp.

Speaking last month, Wayne proclaimed himself "way ahead of schedule," but there's no incentive for him to go full steam before training camp. Wayne is expected to be ready for Week 1.
May 26 - 2:45 PM

Reggie Wayne (ACL) says he's "way ahead of schedule" in his rehab, and expects to be cleared for football activity by April 25.

"I feel great," Wayne said in a Tuesday radio interview. April 25 would be six months and five days since Wayne went down in Week 7. Barring setbacks, Wayne is well on track to be ready for training camp in late July. Going on 36, however, the Colts have zero reason to rush his recovery. Wayne could begin camp on the active/PUP list out of an abundance of caution, but there's every reason to believe he'll be ready for Week 1.
Apr 8 - 6:19 PM

Colts GM Ryan Grigson said Reggie Wayne (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

"From all the reports that I’ve been getting from our trainers and from the doctors in the meetings we’ve had, everyone’s going in the right direction. We’re optimistic about everyone," Grigson said. That includes Dwayne Allen (groin), Vick Ballard (knee), and LG Donald Thomas (quad). Wayne began straight-line running last month and is about four months removed from right ACL surgery.
Feb 23 - 10:50 AM

Reggie Wayne (knee) said he'll begin straight-line running on Saturday.

Wayne is approaching the three-month mark since surgery to repair his torn right ACL. So far he's been walking without crutches and getting some exercise on the treadmill, so doing actual running will signify a new phase. Per GM Ryan Grigson, the 35-year-old is "doing great" and is ahead of schedule. Wayne was on pace for 86 catches, 1,149 yards and five touchdowns at the time of his Week 7 injury.
Jan 22 - 8:19 AM

Reggie Wayne said "so far, so good" when asked about the progress of his knee rehab.

Wayne tore his right ACL on October 20. "I'm very, very, very confident that I can come back better than I was," he said Monday. It's an unrealistic expectation as the 35-year-old Wayne was already showing signs of decline, especially with his long speed and big-play ability. Returning as a reliable possession receiver to complement breakout stud T.Y. Hilton is a more reasonable expectation.
Jan 13 - 11:20 AM

Reggie Wayne (torn ACL, injured reserve) expects to resume running in mid-January, and plans to go "full throttle" in four and a half months.

It's an aggressive timeline that could have Wayne ready for training camp if he avoids setbacks. It's still very early in his rehab, however. Wayne went down 51 days ago. Working in Wayne's favor is the fact that he had been remarkably durable up until his October injury, having not missed a game since his rookie season in 2001. Wayne is signed for an affordable $4 million in 2014.

Reggie Wayne (torn ACL) said he fully expects to play next season.

It's going to be a long and tough road for Wayne. He tore his ACL in Week 7 and will turn 35 years old later this month. Still, we wouldn't put anything past one of the game's true pros and most respected leaders. "I've got no choice. I have to come back," Wayne said. "It will be just another chapter in the book. Hopefully it'll be a good one."
