Colts' Reggie Wayne says knee is "great," anxious to rejoin team

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne said his knee is "great" and he's anxious to rejoin the team.

"The knee is great. The knee is so far, so good, and we're just moving on from there," Wayne said when asked about his injury.

Wayne hurt his knee in the Colts' win over the Broncos on Sunday Night Football.  The injury was diagnosed as a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and he missed the rest of the season.

In his absence, T.Y. Hilton stepped up to fill the void in a major way, something Wayne himself is well aware of. 

Hilton caught 82 passes for over a thousand yards last season.  In his first two seasons, Hilton has 10 games of over 100 yards receiving, the second-most in NFL history.

But he's not the only one that stepped up. LaVon Brazill, whose locker is right next to Wayne's, had over 100 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts playoff run. 

"I think if Brazill can just bottle that all up and just continue to save it and work on it, and work on it, then I think next year will be a breakout year for him,” Wayne said.
