What Reggie Wayne ACL Tear Means For Colts

NFL: Denver Broncos at Indianapolis ColtsOn Sunday night football Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne tore his ACL with 7:15 left in the 4th quarter. If Andrew Luck would of got the throw to him, he would of had an easy touchdown. Instead he under threw him and what didn’t look like a serious injury at the time turned out to be a devastating injury for the Colts. Wayne also had the longest active games played which was 10 short of tying the record for most ever by a wide receiver.

 

Who Must Step Up

1. Trent Richardson. Since being traded from Cleveland Richardson is rushing for an average of 3.08 yards per carry with 2 touchdowns and his longest run being for only 16 yards. He will need to step it up now that Reggie Wayne is out for the season.
2. Darrius Heyward-Bey. He has only caught 18 of 34 passes for 190 yards and 1 touchdown so far this season. Now that Wayne is out Heyward-Bay will move from the # 3 receiver to the #2 receiver which means he will get more targets. With more targets means he has to have more production to help the Colts win.

Trade Targets The Colts Should Go After

1. Josh Gordon-Cleveland Browns. The Colts already traded their 1st round pick in this years draft to the Browns for Trent Richardson and they traded their 4th round pick in this years draft to the Browns to move up in the 2013 draft. So this proves the Colts and Browns are familiar with each other when it comes to trading. But would trading their 2nd round pick be enough for the Browns to trade Gordon?
2. Hakeem Nicks-New York Giants. Their have been many rumors surrounding Nicks as his contract is about to expire. The Giants just gave Victor Cruz a 5 year deal and with a 1-6 record are probably looking to prepare for next year. With that the Colts would be smart to trade for Nicks if they want to keep him long term and give him a contract extension.
3. Kenny Brit-Tennessee Titans. Brit has had some off field issues but if Colts think they can keep him out of trouble he might be worth giving up a 3rd round pick. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports the Titans are willing to give up Brit for a 3rd round pick.

 

Who I Think They Will Trade For

I think they should trade for Hakeem Nicks because Gordon and Brit have both faced off field issues. Yes Nicks is yet to play a full season but he has not missed a game so far this year and so far this year he has caught 27 of 54 passes for 490 yards. In his young career Nicks has caught 282 of 492 passes for 4196 yards and 27 touchdowns.
