Reggie Wayne was set to join NFL receiving royalty with another 1,000 yard season.  That all changed with Manning's injury: The string of 1,000-yard seasons, though, is in serious jeopardy. The absence of Peyton Manning and resulting revolving door and inconsistency at quarterback too often has rendered the passing game impotent. Overall, the Colts have run the fewest offensive plays in the NFL (759) and the offense has suffered the highest percentage of three-and-outs (48-of-150, 32 percent). They are also last in time of possession (25:20). Individually, Wayne has suffered with 56 receptions, 748 yards and two touchdowns.
