Reggie Wayne WR IND 4 Days

Wayne (knee) had no catches on one target in Saturday's preseason game against the Saints.

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. .
