In the fourth quarter of the Sunday Night Football match up between the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning began to charge his troops back down the field to make it a one score game and a nail biter for those who stayed up to watch.
After Knowshon Moreno ran in a touchdown to bring the Broncos within six, the Colts looked to once again extend their lead but things didn’t go as planned.
On a third-and-one, Andrew Luck looked to avoid pressure and find a wide open Reggie Wayne, but he ended up throwing the ball behind the receiver and Wayne had to awkwardly adjust to the ball.
As Wayne reached to make the catch, he twisted is knee in a way that it isn’t supposed to go and he dropped the ball and immediately dropped to the turf grabbing his knee.
The medical staff came out to attend to Wayne, who remained down, and eventually helped him off the field.
The Colts were forced to punt and Peyton Manning got the ball with seven minutes to go.
Hang on folks, this is going to be a great ending.
As for Wayne, there is no official word on the extent of his injury or whether he can return.
UPDATE: Reggie Wayne will not return. He has been diagnosed with a knee sprain. There are some early concerns that the injury could be to Wayne’s ACL.
