Free agent Reggie Wayne said Monday he's still undecided on if he'll try to play again in 2015.
Just one year removed from an ACL tear and then fighting through a partially torn triceps, Wayne was brutally ineffective this season. The Colts saw it, as they phased the future Hall of Famer out down the stretch (zero catches, 37.5 percent of the snaps in the AFC Championship Game). If the Colts do bring back the 36-year-old Wayne next season, it will have to be in a depth and mentor role. He needs surgery to repair the tricep this offseason. Jan 20 - 8:34 AM

Reggie Wayne was held without a catch in Sunday's AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

If this is the end, it's a sad way for the future Hall of Famer to go out. The Patriots didn't even bother wasting Darrelle Revis on Wayne, who tried and failed to come back from an ACL tear at age 36. He caught just 64 passes for 779 yards with two touchdowns on the year, looking like a wounded deer in the rare instances he got in the open field. On Sunday night, Wayne said he will need elbow surgery and added that he didn't know if he would return for a 15th NFL season. Even if he does and the Colts accept him, he couldn't be anything more than a No. 4 or 5 WR and mentor.

Reggie Wayne was held catch-less on one target in the Colts' Divisional Round win over the Broncos.

Wayne had some nice blocks in the running game, but was a non-factor as usual as a receiver. Peyton Manning looked washed up in Sunday's playoff game, and so does his old teammate. Don't expect 36-year-old Wayne to reemerge as a passing-game weapon in the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

The Colts have yet to talk about Reggie Wayne's future.

"Haven't talked to Reggie yet," were the words of owner Jim Irsay on Tuesday. "We're just focused on (the Divisional Round)." Now 36, Wayne is an impending free agent whose play fell off a cliff this season after he tore his ACL midway through his 2013 campaign. A Colt every year since they made him the No. 30 overall pick of the 2001 draft, Wayne is likely giving retirement a serious thought.
Jan 6 - 4:10 PM

Reggie Wayne caught 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in the Colts' Wild Card win over the Bengals.

Wayne's grab elicited a thankful cheer from the home crowd, but he was a distant seventh on Andrew Luck's targets totem pole. Operating at less than 100 percent, the aging wideout is unlikely to be a big part of the game plan for Indy's Divisional Round trip to Denver.
Jan 4 - 5:16 PM

Reggie Wayne (groin) is practicing on a limited basis Wednesday.

Wayne merely tweaked the groin in Week 17. He'll play against the Bengals on Sunday afternoon, but shouldn't find his way near any fantasy lineups.

Reggie Wayne (groin) is expected to practice Wednesday.

Wayne called his Sunday injury little more than a "twinge." He'll be out there for the Wild Card round, but it would behoove the Colts to limit his snaps. Wayne's effectiveness has waned severely during his age-36 season.

Following Sunday's win at Tennessee, Reggie Wayne (groin) was adamant that he'll play in the Wild Card game against the Bengals.

Wayne admitted he felt a "twinge" in his groin while laboring up the sideline on a 80-yard catch. We don't doubt that he's going to suit up, but effectiveness will be a question mark. A liability for most of his age-36 season, Wayne's already limited YAC and separation ability could be down to nil if he's playing through a soft-tissue injury.

Reggie Wayne left Sunday's Week 17 game at Tennessee in the second quarter with a groin injury.

Wayne made an acrobatic sideline catch and took off toward the end zone. But he blew a tire halfway there, finishing with an 80-yard catch that ended at the 2-yard line. It's a fitting end to the regular season for Wayne, who tried valiantly to help the team one year removed from ACL surgery, but was often a liability. The 36-year-old had 65 catches, 779 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games as a 14-year veteran.

Reggie Wayne says he continues to battle his triceps injury and will need surgery in the offseason.

He's likely dealing with a slight tear. Wayne's play has fallen off a cliff recently. He's averaging just three catches for 18 yards and zero touchdowns the past five games. Unbelievably, Hakeem Nicks is actually a better receiver than Wayne right now. The Colts would be wise to put more on the plates of Donte Moncrief and Coby Fleener as pass catchers behind T.Y. Hilton in the playoffs.

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.

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.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:47:00 PM

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.
