Chuck Pagano: Reggie Wayne will be a game-time decision Saturday

Tuesday August 19th, 2014

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne will be a game-time decision for the team's third preseason game on Saturday, head coach Chuck Pagano told reporters on Tuesday.

Nine months ago, Wayne tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the Colts' Week 7 victory against the Denver Broncos.

The 35-year-old had 38 catches for 503 yards and two touchdowns before sustaining the injury.

Wayne had previously said he wasn't sure whether he would be able to play in any of the Colts' preseason games, but doesn't "want (his) first tackle to be in a regular season game."
Wayne is currently listed as the starter on the Colts' depth chart, ahead of Hakeem Nick and Da'Rick Rogers.
From on Sunday:

"There's a possibility," he said of Wayne playing against New Orleans. "We're managing that thing and keeping a close eye on him. From a physical standpoint, make sure there's not too much wear and tear on that knee early on and coming back and all those things.
