It’s not easy to be consistent as a wide receiver in the NFL as only eight players in NFL history have reached 1,000 receptions in their career. Here’s a look at five receivers that have a chance at the feat.
Reggie Wayne (WR, Indianapolis Colts) – Age: 33, Receptions: 916

As if the AFC game of the week couldn't get more confusing, it looks like Donald Brown, now listed as questionable, is probably not going to play against Miami due to swelling in his knee. Robert Mathis has been confirmed, however; good new for the Colts. I'm not overly concerned about Brown; we need him next week, and Ballard's done a good job filling in for him (along...
Andrew Luck is his own harshest critic.
One day after breaking Cam Newton's single-game record for yards passing, the rookie quarterback gave himself a midterm grade of C - even though this has been no average season.
