Reggie Wayne injury: Colts WR leaves field with knee sprain

Dilip Vishwanat

The Indianapolis Colts could be without their top receiver for the remainder of Sunday's game.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne left Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos with a knee injury, and will not return.

Wayne planted his foot on a routine route and reached back across his body to catch a wide pass, causing his knee to twist. He remained on the field for a short period of time before walking off with the assistance of the Colts' training staff:


The injury came on a night where Indianapolis was honoring former Colts-greats as Peyton Manning returned for the first time since becoming a member of the Denver Broncos. Wayne was very much a part of his success while in Indianapolis, playing an instrumental role in the team's Super Bowl win in 2006.

The Colts will turn to Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton to fill the void left by Wayne, but the team lacks a veteran receiver presence on offense him out.
