Reggie Wayne WR IND 8 Hrs
Wayne had four receptions for 62 yards in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.
Andrew Luck threw for 370 yards, but nine players caught passes. After a team-high nine receptions for 98 yards in Week 1, Wayne has had just seven receptions the last two weeks as his fantasy value may be limited a bit if the Colts spread the ball around as much as in Sunday's win.

Wayne had three receptions for 28 yards on seven targets in Monday's 30-27 loss to the Eagles.
One week after recording a team-high nine receptions for 98 yards on 13 targets, Wayne was surprisingly quiet in a game that saw the Colts log 38 carries. T.Y. Hilton led the way in the passing game, posting a 6-65-0 receiving line on 11 targets. Wayne and Hilton could shape up as co-leaders of the receiving corps, a group that appears to be fairly deep, albeit underused. Tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener combined for only two targets Monday, while No. 3 wide receiver Hakeem Nicks had just three of his own. Wayne's quarterback and skill give him reasonable upside, but there's plenty of competition for Andrew Luck's attention, and the Colts still insist on going run-heavy when they're ahead.

Wayne caught nine passes for 98 yards on 13 targets in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Broncos.
Having led the team in both receptions and targets, Wayne is seemingly back at full strength, or at least close to it. He did seem to get some rest early in the game, but that's to be expected, in light of his age and recent torn ACL. While the sample size is still too small to know for sure, it may be that Wayne will re-emerge as Andrew Luck's favorite target. Of course, there's still more competition for the quarterback's attention than in past seasons, with T.Y. Hilton, Hakeem Nicks and TEs Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener all active in the passing game. With Luck attempting 52 passes Sunday night, each of those players had at least five targets, with RBs Ahmad Bradshaw and Trent Richardson also combining for 10.

Wayne is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
As expected, with head coach Chuck Pagano previously noting that Wayne -- who is bouncing back from an ACL tear that he suffered last October -- is in line to play Sunday without any restrictions.

Wayne is listed as probable on the Colts' official injury report with no designated injury, but head coach Chuck Pagano says he'll play Sunday without any restrictions, the Indianapolis Star reports. "For all I know, it's a normal game day," Wayne said. "If it's 60 plays, it's 60 plays. If it's 70, it's 70. If it's 80, it means we're doing a good job on offense."
Wayne fully practiced Thursday and Friday after getting a day of rest Wednesday, so his odd designation on the injury report isn't a worry. All signs this preseason indicated he's back to full speed, but we won't know for sure until he plays in a regular season game.

Wayne fully participated in Wednesday's practice after being rested Tuesday.
Wayne will likely get regular days off from practice as he comes back from an ACL tear that he suffered last October. All signs this preseason indicated he's back to full speed, but it's still a little uncertain how he'll hold up and how big a workload he'll get until he plays in a regular season game.

Wayne (rest) did not practice Wednesday, the Colts' official site reports.
It wouldn't surprise us if the Colts afford Wayne the occasional rest day in the coming weeks, but with no setbacks reported as he bounces back from an ACL tear that he suffered last October, the veteran wideout is on track to suit up, and start for the Colts in Week 1.

Wayne (knee) had no catches on one target in Saturday's preseason game against the Saints.
The stats are unimportant, as the goal was merely for Wayne to make his 2014 preseason debut. He appears to have made it through the game without aggravating his knee injury, and thus remains on track to play in Week 1. While his recovery from a torn ACL has gone well, the 35-year-old Wayne will return to an offense that offers far more competition for Andrew Luck's attention than the one he played in last season. Hakeem Nicks was signed in the offseason, and TE Dwayne Allen is back from a major hip injury. .

Wayne (knee) is considered a game-time decision to play in Saturday's third preseason game, Colts.com reports.
Wayne has sat out Indianapolis' first pair of preseason games to rest his surgically repaired knee. However, with Tuesday marking the veteran's first practice in full pads, he could feature Saturday to gain game experience before the regular season. Expect Wayne's status to be updated as kickoff approaches Saturday.
