Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne left Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos with a knee injury, and will not return.
Wayne planted his foot on a routine route and reached back across his body to catch a wide pass, causing his knee to twist. He remained on the field for a short period of time before walking off with the assistance of the Colts’ training staff:
The injury came on a night where Indianapolis was honoring former Colts-greats as Peyton Manning returned for the first time since becoming a member of the Denver Broncos. Wayne Cheap Kings Jerseys was very much a part of his success while in Indianapolis, playing an instrumental role in the team’s Super Bowl win in 2006.
The Colts will turn to Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton to fill the void left by Wayne, but the team lacks a veteran receiver presence on offense him out.
The Giants were tantalizingly close to their first win last week against the Bears, but a late Eli Manning interception — his third of the game and league-leading 15th of the season — cemented a 27-21 loss. The game was more than just a painful tease, however — the team showed real improvement. The worst rushing offense in the league for much of the season, the Giants got a surprising 106-yard, two-touchdown performance from a resurrected Brandon Jacobs.
The defense, the league’s worst in terms of points allowed, also Cheap Kids Baseball Jerseys played much better against the Bears. While the Giants still allowed 372 yards of offense, the 27 points was actually the first time they’d held an opponent under 30 this season — baby steps, y’all — and more importantly, they played well enough to give the offense a chance. If Eli can stop spewing turnovers like a faulty vending machine, the Giants may finally notch a few in the win column.
