Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) missed practice Friday. Wayne is expected to play, though his production has fallen off of a cliff this season. He has broken the 40-yard mark once in his last seven games.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (groin, probable) missed practice Friday after taking full reps Thursday and is probable for Week 18. Wayne will be out there against Cincinnati, but he isn’t much of a fantasy option at this point.

Marques Colston might be back with the New Orleans Saints next year. But just in case he isn’t, the Saints cherished his game-winning touchdown in Sunday’s 23-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for all it was worth.
Colston was awarded a game ball after turning a short pass into a 36-yard TD with 1:57 remaining. And the usually-stoic veteran even shed a tear, fellow receiver Robert Meachem told The Advocate.
“You couldn’t have scripted a better ending,” said Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who acknowledged that assistant coach Joe Vitt had made the team aware of certain milestones they could reach in the season finale -- including the fact that Brees and Colston could move into fifth place in NFL history with 68 touchdowns as a duo (they broke a tie with Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne).
Brees, Meachem and receiver Kenny Stills all insisted that they expect Colston to be back in 2014, even though his future is in doubt since he’s due $7 million in salary and bonuses. But the emotion they all expressed made it clear that they’re prepared for the possibility Colston, 31, might be done after nine seasons with the Saints. Colston could take a pay cut to stay, the story pointed out, but Saints may want to move on with a healthy Brandin Cooks back next year to go along with Stills, who emerged this year after injuries slowed his start to 2014.

Wayne has had a disappointing season and is a 2015 free agent. He said that he'll keep playing as long as it doesn't feel like a job.
With Hilton inactive, Donte Moncrief draws the start and is a fantasy WR2 start with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen also get a bump. Andrew Luck's ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.
"For some," Pagano responded. "This guy is pretty special. Don't count him out."
As we reported yesterday, those around the team consider him doubtful even though his official status is questionable. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief becomes a fantasy WR2 with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen would also get a bump. Andrew Luck’s ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 16. The beat writers are describing Hilton as doubtful, though he’s officially questionable. We currently do not expect him to play, since Indianapolis doesn’t have a whole lot to play for. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief becomes a fantasy WR2 with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen would also get a bump. Andrew Luck’s ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Hilton was expected to return today. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief, Hakeem Nicks and Reggie Wayne would all see a significant bump in a nice matchup against Dallas. His absence would hurt Andrew Luck, but he’d still be a must-start given the matchup.

After the game it was revealed that the veteran has been dealing with torn triceps. While it's been suggested that Wayne rest until the playoffs and allow the younger guns to carry the load, the veteran said Friday the injury wasn't affecting his play.
"If I'm out there playing, I'm good," he said, per the Indy Star.
When Wayne suits up on Sunday it will mark his 209th game as an Indianapolis Colt, breaking Peyton Manning's franchise record. The receiver's streak of 82 straight games with at least three catches came to an end last week, but his consecutive games with at least one reception remains alive.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related) missed practice Friday. Wayne will likely play despite a torn triceps. He’s not an appealing play given his recent production. We prefer Donte Moncrief at this point.
Colts HC Chuck Pagano on how much HC Reggie Wayne has left:
“I know he’s got more. How much that is? I don’t know how much that is, but I know he’s got more. He’ll deliver. He’ll be back.”
Following the game on Sunday, Pagano on Colts postgame radio said that Wayne was playing through a “torn tri” that he suffered in the Cincinnati game earlier this season. On Monday, Pagano reiterated that Wayne is battling through nagging injuries.
Against Cleveland, Wayne had just one reception in eight targets and did drop a few balls he might normally catch if healthy. He’s averaged three receptions for 37 yards in the games since his elbow/tri injuries as T.Y. Hilton has really emerged. Wayne’ s presence within the Colts offense is still key and Pagano clearly feels that No. 87 will continue to make plays for this team. Sunday would mark the 209th career game for Wayne, breaking the Colts franchise record.
