Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne says he expects to be cleared for football activities on April 25th after tearing his ACL last October, according to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com.

Wayne told Indianapolis' 1260 WNDE that he "felt great" and that his recovery was "way ahead of schedule." The longtime Colts receiver also said he was looking forward to playing with the team's newest offensive weapon, Hakeem Nicks.

"I'm a fan of (Nicks). We can combine all the winning he's done and we've done and come out with a nice mixture," Wayne said. "He's a big target, great skills, big hands ... I really don't think there are a lot of guys that can cover him."
