Reggie Wayne Still Waiting For MRI Results On His Elbow Injury

Intro: On his weekly radio show with WNDE, Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne offered an update on his elbow injury. What did Wayne have to say about his diagnosis?





INDIANAPOLIS – Just like the rest of Colts nation, Reggie Wayne is waiting.

He's waiting on the MRI results from the left elbow injury that he suffered on Sunday against the Bengals.

"I'm waiting to hear back from the doctors on my MRI," Wayne said Tuesday night to Query and Schultz on WNDE.

"I'm just like everybody else, waiting. But I feel pretty good."

The injury occurred when Wayne fell in the first quarter of Sunday's 27-0 win over the Bengals, trying to corral a first quarter pass from Andrew Luck.

The 14-year veteran finished the game and reached the 14,000-yard receiving plateau (ninth player in NFL history to do that) with his four-catch 15-yard outing.

One year ago today, the Colts announced that Wayne had suffered a torn ACL the previous night against the Broncos.

In coming back from that ACL injury at the age of 35, Wayne has 38 catches for 434 yards through seven games.

Chuck Pagano will meet the media on Wednesday afternoon where he typically goes over the injury report for the week.

On Tuesday night, the wide receiver assured Colts fans not to panic about his elbow injury.

"If you don't see me out there, not only this Sunday, but any given Sunday, then it's probably something I can't fight through," Wayne said on WNDE.

"Regardless of the information I get with my elbow, I can say with a good smile on my face that I'm going to be okay. I'm going to fight through it. I'm going to continue to push and continue to see the same Reggie you've always seen."

If Wayne misses any time, expect more targets in the direction of T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and Donte Moncrief.

Last year, Hilton played a lead role in the second half of the season. He emerged as a true No. 1 target, particularly in the playoffs, without Wayne's presence.

In 2014, Hilton's 47 catches for 711 yards puts him third in the NFL.

Nicks, who has seen his snaps dwindle a bit the past few weeks, has 141 receiving yards in 17 catches. During his five previous seasons with the Giants, Nicks was twice a 1,000-yard receiver.

Moncrief has begun to see an expanded role and the Colts third-round pick has nine catches for 103 yards on the year.
