Pagano talks about Reggie Wayne’s status for Sunday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano has his team on a five game winning streak for the first time since 2009, thanks to their 27-0 win over the Bengals.

In Sunday’s win against Cincinnati, Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne injured his left elbow during the first quarter against Cincinnati.

Wayne continued to play through the injury, but it was obvious he wasn’t himself dropping a couple of passes.

Coach Pagano told WISH-TV Sports Director, Anthony Calhoun, the team is still waiting on MRI results, and we’re told the Colts don’t expect his injury to be serious.

If Wayne can’t play this weekend against the Steelers, Pagano is confident others players will step up.

“You don’t want to ever lose anybody to injury. You don’t want to lose a Reggie Wayne or Robert Mathis. Those guys you can’t replace, and we all know that. Again, Ryan (Grigson) and his staff did a great job, you get a guy like Hakeem in free agency and you draft a guy like Moncrief who’s a young and upcoming talent, you feel good about things. So if he can’t play, he’ll be sorely missed, you all know that. But it’s next man up. We’ve got more than capable guys that will step in and play good football for us.”
