Indianapolis Colts playing first game without Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison in fifteen years

Sunday evening, when the Indianapolis Colts take the field against the Houston Texas in their Week 9 matchup, they’ll be doing so without star wide receiver, Reggie Wayne.

It’ll be the first time in fifteen years that the Colts will not play a game without at least either Harrison or Wayne on the field:

Something will be different when the Colts play Houston on Sunday night.For the first time since Dec. 27, 1998, the Colts will take the field without either Reggie Wayne or Marvin Harrison in the lineup. That’s 251 games, including the playoffs, with either No. 87 or No. 88 — or both — on the field.

Of course, Harrison hasn’t played in a game since 2008, meaning Wayne has not missed a game since he left the Colts.

Wayne, who suffered a torn ACL in Week 7 will break his impressive streak of 207 appearances, which includes the postseason.

As if losing Petyon Manning wasn’t difficult enough, the Colts will now play their first game in a decade and a half without their longstanding franchise pillars.
