INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An injured right knee has kept Colts receiver Reggie Wayne on the sideline the entire offseason.
Team doctors weren't even willing to clear him for Tuesday's opening practice in the team's mandatory three-day mini-camp.
But the Pro Bowler is still making an impact around the team complex.
Wayne is instructing younger players such as tight end Dwayne Allen on how to deal with injuries, run crisper routes and make progress when nobody else is paying attention. Allen says he's been showing up in other meeting rooms, not just with the quarterbacks and receivers. He's been so active that the Colts assistant coaches are ready to make Wayne one of their own.
By August, though, coach Chuck Pagano expects Wayne back where he belongs - catching passes.
