It is being reported that the Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne may have suffered a torn ACL on Sunday Night Football. This would end Wayne's season and really hurt the Indianapolis Colts in the second half of the season. The Colts do have a BYE Week 8, so fantasy owners and Indianapolis will have an extra week to figure out what to do should Reggie be done for the year. Clearly he is the favorite target for Andrew Luck but this would boost T.Y. Hilton to WR1 status moving forward while Darrius Heyward-Bey would have to step his game up and become a more consistent player. There is no depth behind DHB.
If this is a season ending injury for Reggie Wayne, you would have to imagine his career would be finished at 34 (soon to be 35) years old. With 1006 career receptions, Wayne is 8th all time, for 13,566 yards (11th). His 80 TDs sits him at #23 on the career receptions TD list. Hall of Fame numbers? Hard to argue against that!
Let's hope Reggie Wayne, the Indianapolis Colts and us Fantasy Owners get some miracle news this afternoon when the results of the MRI are released!
