Reports out of Colts camp this afternoon is that Reggie Wayne left practice early after pulling up short on a route.
The four-time Pro Bowl receiver left practice 20 minutes early after aggravating an injured right knee. Coach Jim Caldwell said Wayne hurt the soft tissue below his kneecap. Wayne is listed as probable and Caldwell plans on him playing against New Orleans. Wayne got through the injury most of the season.
This might be nothing, seeing that Reggie basically played the entire season with a bad knee. And he is expected to start and play Sunday. But it's got to be a little disconcerting for Colts fans that two of their star players are banged up before the big game. It's ironic that this is happening given the fact that Indy sat down their starters and opted not to chase a perfect season just to avoid this kind of thing.
Jim Caldwell should've just slammed car doors on the hands of Colts players and stuck thumbtacks on their seats before team meetings at the end of the season. Seems like it would have been just as affective as resting them. Some guys think they know everything.
