Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne is on the fast track in his return from October surgery to repair a torn ACL.
Appearing on WNDE-AM in Indianapolis, Wayne said Tuesday that he expects to be cleared for football activities on April 25.
That date would put Wayne back on the practice field six months after suffering the injury.
"I'm way ahead of schedule," Wayne added. "I feel great."
It's good news for Wayne and his owners, though it remains to be seen if the 35 year-old lost another step due to the injury. The Colts signed Hakeem Nicks as insurance.
