Reggie Wayne Twists Right Knee; Are Indianapolis Colts Doomed Without Him?
Unfortunately, the Colts great twisted his knee on Sunday night versus the Denver Broncos and was forced to the locker room late in the fourth quarter. It’s uncertain just how serious No. 87′s injury is, but judging by the replay it doesn’t look like he’s going to be playing at full speed anytime soon. In fact, the injury was so frustrating to Wayne that he left the game with tears in his eyes. Indianapolis has to appreciate Wayne’s uncanny work ethic over these past 13 seasons, but is this franchise really doomed without its elite wide out?
Whether you like it or not, he time has come where the Colts are now forced to look elsewhere in terms of production at the wide receiver position. For instance, look for guys like T.Y. Hilton, Darius Heyward-Bey and even Coby Fleener to shoulder a bigger responsibility in Pep Hamilton‘s offense. With that being said, none of those aforementioned targets have shown the ability to handle the workload that Wayne has put on his plate for nearly two decades.
So, while the Colts are surely going to miss Wayne’s pass-catching prowess, it’s the surefire Hall of Famer’s durability and versatility that Luck and company are going to miss the most.
