reggie wayne injurySunday evening the Indianapolis Colts spoiled Peyton Manning’s return and handed the powerhouse Denver Broncos their first loss of the season, but not without a cost. According to reports, the Colts fear that star veteran receiver Reggie Wayne may be lost for the season with a torn ACL:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed Monday that Wayne did indeed suffer a torn ACL.

Wayne left Sunday night’s game after trying to make an awkward catch in the fourth quarter and did not return. Here is video of the play:

Wayne, now 34, has been the Colts most consistent receiver for years, and has 38 catches for 503 yards and two touchdowns this season, and for his career ranks eighth all time in receptions (1006) and eleventh in yards receiving (13,566).

Losing Wayne would be a big blow to the Colts passing game, and would most likely prompt them to promote T.Y. Hilton to their top receiver and maybe seek outside help. Indianapolis recently pulled off a trade for running back Trent Richardson to bolster their running game, so conventional wisdom would suggest that they are willing to go all in for a receiver to help them win now. Browns wideout Josh Gordon would appear to be an immediate target if the Colts are seeking to make a trade for a receiver.
