INDIANAPOLIS -- A torn ACL and just months away from being 36 years old has caused Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne to drop 20 spots as the 56th best offensive player in ESPN’s #NFLRank project.

Wayne went into the 2013 season 36th in the rankings. His season came to an end when he tore his ACL in the fourth quarter of the Colts' victory over the Denver Broncos in Week 7. He finished with 38 catches for 503 yards and two touchdowns in seven games.

Wayne says he's healthy and hopes to play in Saturday's preseason game (8 p.m. ET) against the New Orleans Saints at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Wayne is 1,015 yards from braking Marvin Harrison's franchise record in receiving yards, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Wayne may not surpass Harrison's record this season because the Colts have two other legitimate receivers in T.Y. Hilton and Hakeem Nicks. QB Andrew Luck can also use tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen in the passing game.

Hilton is the No. 70th-ranked offensive player in the league.
