Who will the Indianapolis Colts turn to now that longtime wide receiver Reggie Wayne is out for the year? Mike Wells of ESPN.com believes that it will have to be a committee approach, but also that the incumbent Darrius Heyward-Bey could actually be the No. 1 receiver going froward:

The pressure can be looked at that he’s only produced 18 catches for 190 yards this season or it could be that he’s now technically the team’s No. 1 receiver.

“No pressure,” Heyward-Bey said when asked Monday afternoon. “I was just talking to [quarterback] Andrew [Luck] about that. We all work hard and our craft, that’s what we expect to do week in and week out.”

All eyes will be on the receiver spot every time Luck steps back in the pocket and throws to Heyward-Bey, T.Y. Hilton or whoever manages to step up to be the No. 3 receiver – it’s anybody’s guess on that spot right now.

That’s a really scary thought for an offense that was slowly becoming one of the better units in the NFL until Wayne went down. Heyward-Bey has been a massive draft-bust since being the No. 7 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Maryland.
