Reggie Wayne begins his rehabilitation
By Mike Wells
INDIANAPOLIS -- The road to recovery has officially started for Indianapolis Colts receiver Reggie Wayne.
Wayne, out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, had his surgery conducted by Dr. John Uribe late last week.
“Uneventful as they usually say,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “So everything came out great. He’s in good spirits, rehabbing three times a day, grinding it out as we would all expect. He’s doing well.”
Wayne will rehabilitate in Florida for the time being until he’s able to travel.
“He’ll be back here eventually, as soon as they let him,” Pagano said.
ESPN injury analyst Stephania Bell said last week that most players take 6-to-9 months to recover from a torn ACL. `
Wayne’s consecutive games played streak ends at 189, and his 2013 season -- the 13th of his career -- ends with 38 catches for 503 yards and two touchdowns.
