Status Of Reggie Wayne
Reggie Wayne suffered a minor elbow Injury Sunday after a hard hit in the first quarter. After that he seemed banged up; could catch open balls, dropped a screen pass, and seemed bothered by it. From seeing him play it didn’t look super serious but could be game altering. He stated “If you don’t see me Sunday it’s something I can’t play through”. Sounds like a typical veteran and future Hall-of-Famer wanting to play no matter the circumstance.
I would be surprised if he didn’t make a hard push to play next week, but if it alters his play like it did Sunday they might hold him out for precautionary reasons. Sunday he dropped 3 passes and took 2 hard hits. On one play you really questioned why he was still in because he clearly seemed hurt, but he wanted to keep playing; he finished with 4 receptions for 15 yards.
The Colts are waiting for an MRI to come back, and they’ll go from there. Personally I expect Reggie Wayne to play; but its Chuck Pagano’s call.
