Colts acknowledge Wayne is fighting triceps injury
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Colts coach Chuck Pagano has an explanation for Reggie Wayne’s declining numbers: A torn triceps.
Pagano told reporters Monday that Wayne injured his left arm during a victory over Cincinnati on Oct. 19.
Since then, the team has listed Wayne on the injury report with an elbow injury. But Pagano didn’t discuss the triceps until Sunday’s postgame radio show.
While Wayne has missed only one game, he hasn’t been himself. Despite being targeted eight times Sunday, Wayne caught only one pass for 5 yards — ending his NFL record streak of consecutive games with three or more catches to 82.
He has tied Peyton Manning’s franchise records for the most games played (208) and most wins (141), and he could break those marks if the Colts beat Houston on Sunday.
