When the Indianapolis Colts lost wide receiver Reggie Wayne earlier in the season, it looked like they may have run out of luck. But it turns out they had the truest form of luck, and his name was Andrew, but all eyes return to the status of Wayne now that the luck of Andrew Luck has run out.
Wayne is speaking out for the first time this offseason about his plans for returning to the Colts in 2014, and not only is he planning on coming back from his ACL injury, the iconic Colts receiver thinks he’s going to be better than ever.
Per the Indianapolis Star:
“I can tell you that Reggie Wayne, as I’m speaking in the third person, has never lacked confidence. I’m very, very, very confident I will come back better than I was. One thing about this time: It was an opportunity for my body to heal up a little bit so hopefully I stole a year. We’ll go from there.”
There is just something about Colts receivers, whether they be Marvin Harrison or Reggie Wayne, that you just can’t help rooting for them. Wayne has been a standup player in his standout career with the Colts and everyone in the NFL is hoping he can return to the level he was at.
That’s easier said than done given his age, but we’ve seen miraculous ACL recoveries before and this might be a case where a once career ending injury for a guy like Wayne, actually ends up extending his career.
