The Colts are holding receiver Reggie Wayne out of Organized Team Activities, but quarterback Andrew Luck says he’s already seen enough to know that Wayne will be as good as new when the season starts.
“His attitude is awesome,” Luck said, via Mike Wells of ESPN.com. “He’s around, he’s coaching, he’s talking football. I feel like I know Reggie. He’s going to be back better than ever doing things that the 35-plus years olds shouldn’t be allowed to do on this earth. He’s a freak.”
Wayne tore his ACL eight months ago, and two months ago he proclaimed himself “way ahead of schedule.” And the Colts have said he’s medically ready to go.
Still, Colts coach Chuck Pagano is stressing the importance of caution with Wayne’s knee. Wayne will continue to sit out OTAs, and even when he takes the field in training camp, he may be limited. We might not get to see how much of a freak Wayne really is until September.
