Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne went down with an ACL tear earlier in the year. It was a tough loss for the Colts passing attack and they would love to have him back on the roster making plays as soon as possible. ACL injuries usually take a year to recover from, but it seems that Reggie is recovering quickly and he will be able to start running in mid-January, according to Mike Chappell. He plans to go “full throttle” in 4 1/2 months.

The Colts have not been able to move the ball in the air at the same rate with him on the sideline. What else could you expect when a talent like that is sitting on the sideline with a bum knee.

Reggie Wayne is 35 years old and people will start to wonder if he is going to break down soon. He is getting up there in years. I wonder how much longer he can play at an elite level. I bet he still comes back strong next year.
