From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Wayne's down week isn't as scary when you consider that he was uncomfortable after coming down hard on his elbow, but that elbow injury could be an issue that causes him to miss at least a week or two of action.
General News (Tue Oct 21): Wayne's elbow injury isn't believed to be serious, but it could cause him to miss a game or two, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Head coach Chuck Pagano hasn't revealed the results of Wayne's MRI exams, however. Wayne said his injury wasn't serious after the Week 7 win. He finished the game against the Cincinnati Bengals with just four catches for 15 yards, and he had two drops.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 5 vs BAL (12 / 7 / 77 / 0 rec)
Tying with T.Y. Hilton in targets, Wayne was heavily targeted on third down by Andrew Luck, and was largely successful. Wayne didn't have a great game, with a rare drop in the end zone and an offensive pass interference penalty taking a Hilton touchdown off the board, but he's Luck's safety blanket, and that was on display once again Sunday.
2014 Week 6 vs HOU (9 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)
Wayne was limited to short, quick passes for first downs on Thursday, a critical part of the real-life offense, but not so beneficial for fantasy owners. He had one deep pass over the middle overturned in the fourth quarter, which would have extended a drive for Indianapolis. Wayne is still Luck's security blanket, but with Hilton breaking out and the other young weapons, the Colts quarterback doesn't need his blanket quite as often as he used to.
2014 Week 7 vs CIN (8 / 4 / 15 / 0 rec)
It was a rough day for Wayne, who needed two screens in the fourth quarter to get his customary three catches. Wayne hurt his elbow early in the game, but was able to return. But, it seemed the injury may have affected him, and he struggled through the rest of the game. It could possibly cost him Week 8, pending results of an MRI. Wayne dropped at least two passes, and he's averaged less than 10 yards per catch in both of the last two games. He's due for a big game soon, but if he's hurting at all, Luck has other weapons to go to.
Latest NewsColts | Reggie Wayne could miss a game or two (Tue Oct 21, 12:45 PM) - Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne's (elbow) injury isn't believed to be serious, but it could cause him to miss a game or two, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Head coach Chuck Pagano hasn't revealed the results of Wayne's MRI exams, however. Wayne said his injury wasn't serious after the Week 7 win. He finished the game against the Cincinnati Bengals with just four catches for 15 yards, and he had two drops. WR Hakeem Nicks could receive a heavier workload if Wayne needs some time to heal from his injury. Nicks had zero catches on one target against the Bengals after catching just two passes for 18 yards the previous week. Our View: We're way more excited about rookie Donte Moncrief than we are Nicks. With Wayne out, we could see Moncrief get a real opportunity to impress in one of the league's more robust passing games. He's a big target who can make plays above the rim because of his size, wingspan and leaping ability. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues need to take a look at Moncrief.
