Reggie Wayne Lost for the Year with Torn ACL
- Updated: October 21, 2013
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The parties have ended abruptly in Indy. Following a huge win over Peyton Manning and the undefeated Denver Broncos, news has been confirmed that WR Reggie Wayne will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Adam Schefter broke the news Monday morning:
Confirmed and crushing: tests showed Colts WR Reggie Wayne has a torn ACL. His season and streak of 189 straight games is over.

The Colts sit at 5-2 and have very serious Super Bowl aspirations. They traded their 2014 first round pick to acquire RB Trent Richardson from the Cleveland Browns earlier this year. Now the question is will they attempt to strike another deal in order to shore up the depleted receiving core. Multiple receivers have been involved in trade rumors but the Colts weren’t thought to be suitors until now. The list includes Cleveland’s Josh Brown, Giant’s Hakeem Nicks and Kenny Britt from Tennessee.
If they are unable to make a deal they will rely heavily on second year WR, T.Y. Hilton, and off-season acquisition, Darrius Heyward-Bey. They have combined for 45 catches for 602 yards and 3 touchdowns this season. Wayne had 38 catches for 503 yards and 2 touchdowns before exiting Sunday’s game.
