COLTS WR REGGIE WAYNE RISKS GETTING FINE TO SUPPORT AILING COACH - Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne was so intent on showing support for Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, that he violated the NFL’s less-than-flexible uniform code on Sunday. Wayne, who showed Pagano and his teammates plenty of love by catching 13 passes for a career-high 212 yards and the game-winning touchdown in Indy’s 30-27 upset of the Green Bay Packers, wore orange gloves and an orange mouthpiece as the color signifies awareness for leukemia, the disease Pagano is battling in an Indianapolis hospital. NFL players everywhere are decked out in pink to support breast cancer awareness this month, but Wayne went off script for a coach he’s known since their time together at the University of Miami (Fla.) more than a decade ago. Wayne ask some of the Colts equipment guys to make some phone calls and reach out to teams with orange team colors. So, the thinking is that a really good friend and former teammate, who now plays for a certain Mile High team, had a hand (no pun intended) in getting the orange gloves and mouthpiece for Wayne “I just wanted to do something, you know, for Chuck,” said Wayne, who did sport a pink towel and sweat bands. If they (the NFL) fine me, they fine me, I really feel like that would be a terrible thing to do, but if so, so be it, I’ll go ahead and take the fine and do it for Chuck.” Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star did report via Twitter on Monday that the NFL would not fine Reggie. So big ups to a league that obsesses over everything from face shields to sock length to messages worn on t-shirts underneath game jerseys for finally getting it right and taking a chill pill in this instance.

Donald Brown out 3 Weeks Due to Knee Injury

Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown underwent a knee scope and will miss two to three weeks. The injury occurred late in the second half against the Packers.

Following a Legend: Andrew Luck Week 4 vs. Green Bay Packers

Andrew Luck had his best game yet in leading the Colts back from a 21-3 halftime deficit over the Green Bay Packers. It ties the largest comeback win of the season, and the largest by a rookie since Matthew Stafford’s 21-point comeback over Cleveland in 2009. For the third straight game Luck led the offense on a go-ahead scoring drive with less than a minute to go, and Green...

Spotlight Matchup: Mark Sanchez vs. the Colts' Pass Defense

After a huge win agains the Packers this past Sunday, the Colts will take on the circus in New York on Sunday.  The Jets have had their problems in 2012, being extremely disappointing after a blowout win against Buffalo in Week 1.  A lot of the problems have stemmed from the Jets most visible problem: quarterback. Mark Sanchez continues to be a terrible excuse for an NFL quarterbak...

Kelley/Bowen: A Bit of Modern History

A lengthy article, but a good read to really put this game in perspective. I especially like the Indy's regular season record against them: 40-26. I mean, that won't factor into this week's game, but at least it's not 0-66; then, I might get a little paranoid.Oh! And my Colts/Jets history! Living in Canada, I'm not able to go to nearly as many Colts games as...

Expect trouble for Green, Wayne

Additional Harmon Rankings: RB , TE/DEF The 82-yard toss and catch from Roethlisberger to Wallace was a thing of beauty. Fantasy owners hoped to see at least one more in the second half of the game. Alas, Wallace would record only one more catch for 12 yards. His counterpart, Kenny Britt, struggled to corral multiple passes, but he did exhibit great concentration to record his...
