(NEW YORK) — Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne will miss the remainder of the 2013 season with a torn ACL in his right leg.
Head coach Chuck Pagano made the announcement on Monday following the Colts 39-33 win over the Broncos on Sunday night.
“We hate to lose anybody, but this one stings,” Pagano said. “You just don’t replace guys like 87. But he’ll be back, I know how he’s wired. I know how his DNA is.”
“After the conversation I just had with him, wait and see. We’ll all put on the clothes for Reggie and we’ll help him get it back,” he continued.
Wayne suffered the injury when he tried to cutback on a under thrown pass by Andrew Luck with 7:15 left in the game.
The six-time Pro-Bowler has played in 189 straight games, the most among active players.
