Reggie Wayne will not play Sunday
Friday October 24th, 2014

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is out for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, head coach Chuck Pagano said Friday.

Wayne hasn't practiced all week due to an elbow injury. He hurt his elbow after taking a hard fall in last week's win over the Cincinnati Bengals and temporarily left the game, but later returned. Wayne said afterwards he wasn't worried about the severity of the injury.

The veteran underwent an MRI this week and it was reported that he might have to miss one or two games.

Wayne, 35, has 38 catches for 434 yards and one touchdown this season. Against the Bengals, he became the ninth receiver in NFL history to surpass 14,000 career receiving yards.

Wayne is in his first season back after tearing his ACL in October last season, which forced him to miss the final nine games of the year. He had started 189 consecutive games before that injury.

Running back Trent Richardson, who injured his hamstring against the Bengals, is questionable after missing practice all week.

The Colts are 5-2 and in first place in the AFC South.
