Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne was having his usual production game on Sunday Night Football when he went down with a knee injury. Andrew Luck threw an inaccurate pass that forced Wayne to twist his body. He injured his knee in the process. The fear is Wayne tore his ACL, but the results of Monday morning's MRI have yet to be released. Wayne caught five passes for 50 yards before exiting the game.
Fantasy spin: Wayne is Luck's favorite and most reliable target. Without him, Luck's fantasy ceiling drops a bit. Derrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton will now see and increase in their roles, while tight end Coby Fleener also might get a bump in targets.
The Colts might even look to add a wide receiver before the trading deadline. If Wayne is out for the season, Indianapolis will have to add some depth at wide receiver and could look to add a bonafide No. 1 target for Luck.
UPDATE: Adam Schefter confirms that Reggie Wayne has torn his ACL and his season is over.
