Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) could be a target of the San Diego Chargers after they lost out on Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson in free agency. Chargers general manager Tom Telesco was a former front office executive with the Colts.
Huddle Up: The difference between Wayne and Johnson is that AJ still has something left in the tank. Wayne might provide Philip Rivers with a veteran presence, but his days as an elite fantasy wideout are in the rear-view mirror.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Reggie Wayne will not be re-signed for 2015, the team announced Friday, March 6.
Huddle Up: This marks the end of Wayne's brilliant run in Indy where he he compiled the seventh-most receptions (1,070) and eighth-most receiving yards (14,345) in league history. The 36-year-old WR successfully returned from his 2013 ACL injury but suffered a midseason elbow injury/torn trcieps last season and clearly struggled down the stretch, finishing with with 64 receptions for 779 yards and two TDs and failing to catch a pass in either of the Colts' two playoff games. Wayne hasn't officially said yet if its the end of his NFL career, but it sure seems like it at this point.

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) recently underwent surgery on his triceps and has started his rehab. Wayne still has not decided if he will play in 2015.
Huddle Up: Wayne, who will be 37 in November, figures to be welcomed back as a reserve WR and veteran presence in Indy if he chooses to play another season, but it's certainly a wait-and-see proposition for the time being.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) is unsure if he will be returning for another season. Wayne was targeted just twice in the loss to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 18, and he didn't have any catches. Wayne said he plans to have surgery to fix a torn triceps this offseason. He will become a free agent this offseason, as well.
Huddle Up: Wayne, who turned 36 in November, caught 64 passes this past season but averaged a career low-matching 12.2 yards per reception and will likely not be in a rush to make any decisions on his future given the looming surgery.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) did not practice Friday, Jan. 16, but he officially isn't listed on the team's injury report for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.
Huddle Up: The veteran wideout will be out there Sunday, but he hasn't exactly been lighting up the stat sheet of late and was held without a catch in the divisional-round win over the Broncos for the first time all season.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 9, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: The veteran WR certainly hasn't finished the season with a flourish, averaging 2.6 receptions and 28 yards over his last 7 games -- including his 1-12 showing in last weekend's wild-card win -- without catching a TD pass. Now, sure, he could break out Sunday as a by-product of the sheer volume of the Colts' passing game -- but he's clearly fallen far down the pass-catching pecking order in Indy. Stay far away unless you feel the urge to take a huge gamble.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 2, but is listed as probable for the wild-card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: The veteran Wayne, who did practice in full Thursday, will play Sunday according to various media reports, but certainly check his status before kickoff to be sure.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne said Wednesday, Dec. 31, that he expects to be back with the team next season.
Huddle Up: Wayne, who turned 36 in November, had one of his least-productive full seasons with 64 receptions for 779 yards and 2 TDs. Regardless, he's one of the team's most respected veteran leaders, but if he does come back, he'll likely take even more of a backseat to young Indy WRs T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief next season.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, but is listed as probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Sounds like nothing more than a late-season veteran maintenance day for Wayne, and he could be in line for more work than usual Sunday with fellow wideout T.Y. Hilton a major question mark.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (triceps), who is dealing with a torn triceps, said he is fine as long as he's on the field and playing, as he's expected to do in Week 15 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Wayne has been dealing with injuries and his play has suffered because of it in recent weeks. If he can't go against the Colts on Sunday, rookie Donte Moncrief would become a WR3 against Houston.
Posted: 12/12/2014 5:59pm et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (rest) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: There were reports earlier in the week that Wayne was dealing with a triceps injury and playing hurt, but it's been quiet on that front as the week has gone on. If Wayne plays, it obviously cuts back on the snaps for rookie Donte Moncrief so adjust accordingly.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (triceps) has been bothered by a torn left triceps muscle, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. The injury occurred Oct. 19 and was described as an elbow injury. Pagano was noncommittal on whether he'd continue to play Wayne.
Huddle Up: Wayne showed his age in the win over Cleveland, with three bad drops and another catchable ball he let slip through his usually reliable mitts. After coming back from an ACL injury this past offseason, one has to wonder if Reggie wants to go through all the rehab necessary to come back from another injury to extend his NFL career. He has already reportedly been mulling retirement, and he certainly wouldn't leave the cupboard bare as far as wideouts are concerned in Indy.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne indicated he may consider retirement this offseason but will need time to make a decision. Wayne said he will only sign with the Colts if he decides to continue his playing career. Wayne will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
Huddle Up: Wayne is at the point in his career where retirement is an option but he's still productive, so signing a contract with the Colts is a distinct possibility. However, Wayne's targets could decrease in 2015 with talented rookie Donte Moncrief expected to take on a bigger role in his second season.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne is not signed past this season, but sources have indicated he prefers to remain with the Colts should he play in 2015.
Huddle Up: Wayne could return as a mentor to the likes of TY Hilton and Donte Moncrief. He's a reliable target for Andrew Luck and certainly more reliable than fellow short-timer Hakeem Nicks, also on a one-year deal.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) said Sunday, Nov. 2, that he will not be limited in the Week 9 game against the New York Giants Monday, Nov. 3. 'The main thing was just making sure I get my strength back. That was what the whole thing about last week was. In the Cincinnati game, when I dropped those two passes, I had no strength and I couldn't stop the ball and the ball just coming through my hands. I had to gain some strength back,' Wayne said.
Huddle Up: Wayne should be safely inserted into fantasy lineups tomorrow night. His return hurts the value of emerging rookie Donte Moncrief, who now is a risky flex play.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) was a full participant in practice Saturday, Nov. 1, and is listed as probable for Monday night.
Huddle Up: Wayne will be a WR2 against the Giants this week. Rookie Donte Moncrief's fantasy value takes a hit with Wayne back in the lineup.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow, rest) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31, after sitting out Thursday, Oct. 30.
Huddle Up: Good sign for Wayne, who sat out Week 8. If he can follow this up with another full practice Saturday, consider him good to go -- while downgrading rookie Donte Moncrief -- Monday night against the Giants.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 30. The team's web site, though, says it's simply for rest reasons.
Huddle Up: Wayne's fantasy owners will have to sit tight for now as it's only the first practice of the week for the Colts, who play Monday night.
Posted: 10/24/2014 2:48pm et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) has officially been ruled out for Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: As expected, the veteran wideout will be down Sunday, leaving more targets and looks for Hakeem Nicks, rookie Donte Moncrief and TEs Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: Wayne hasn't been ruled out of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh by any means just yet, but it's not looking good for the veteran wideout who also sat out Wednesday.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (elbow) could miss time with his elbow injury. Beat writer Stephen Holder tweeted that he isn't receiving good vibes from the situation, but it doesn't sound major. The team is receiving multiple opinions on the injury.
Huddle Up: The Colts have some depth at the position, but Andrew Luck would miss Wayne's veteran presence should he be down for any extended length of time.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne and RB Ahmad Bradshaw were full participants in practice Thursday, Sept. 18. Both players received rest days Wednesday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Just a little early-season break for the two veterans, who have strong matchups Sunday going against a Jaguars' D which has been torched for 75 points and 869 yards in 2 games.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Likely just a maintenance day for the 35-year-old WR, but check in on him Friday just to make sure.
Posted: 9/4/2014 7:14pm et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne was back to a full practice Thursday, Sept. 4, after resting Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: At 35 and coming off the knee injury, the veteran wideout is going to need some rest days. For this week, count on him as an WR3 option if you need him.
Posted: 8/21/2014 6:52pm et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is a game-time decision against the New Orleans Saints Saturday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.
Huddle Up: Indy would like to get the veteran wideout a few preseason snaps after he missed the final 9 games last season and the first two exhibitions this year. If he's doing as well as been billed in practices, count on seeing him Saturday.
Posted: 8/5/2014 1:01am et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) has been off limits to defenders during training camp.
Huddle Up: After 13 seasons, 1,006 career catches and last season's knee injury, the soon-to-be 36-year-old wideout is definitely due some special camp considerations.
Posted: 7/31/2014 11:47pm et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne said he hasn't had any problems so far with his surgically repaired right knee.
Huddle Up: So far so good this summer for the soon-to-be 36-year-old Wayne. Nonetheless, there will be much more competition for targets with the emergence of T.Y. Hilton, the free-agent signing of Hakeem Nicks, the selection of Donte Moncrief in the third round and the return of TE Dwayne Allen, who missed all but 1 game last season with a hip injury.
Posted: 7/23/2014 2:25pm et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) said he has been medically cleared to practice. He's expected to be limited, though, especially in the near future.
Huddle Up: No reason to rush Reggie, as he's well versed in the Indy offense. But the good news is that he appears to be all the way back from last season's injury so fantasy owners can feel comfortable drafting him.
Posted: 7/18/2014 5:16pm et
Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) can still play, get open and make a catch, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano said it will be great to have Wayne back (from injury) not only because of his on-field ability but because of the leadership he brings to the locker room.
Huddle Up: Wayne may not be done yet, but at this point in his career he's WR2 to TY Hilton and will be competing with Hakeem Nicks for looks. There's still some fantasy value here, just not the top-10 WR value Wayne has had in the past.
Posted: 6/17/2014 7:37pm et
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said he would be shocked if WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is not ready to go by the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Even though the veteran wideout will turn 36 this November, this is nothing but great news for the Colts and Andrew Luck's fantasy owners,

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (knee) is expected to be cleared for football activities April 25 after he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in Week 7 last season. 'I feel good, I'm ahead of schedule,' Wayne said. 'I'm at the point where I'm tired of doing the same rehab stuff, to be honest with you. I'm excited to get back to football activities. I feel good.' Wayne wants to participate in the team's minicamp, but he'll be held out as a precaution.
Huddle Up: With Wayne turning 36 this November and coming off the injury, his 100-catch seasons figure to be behind him, but barring any offseason setbacks, there's no reason he can't re-assume his role as Andrew Luck's No. 1 target -- even with the recent addition of Hakeem Nicks and the continued development of young wideout T.Y. Hilton.
