Wayne was injured in the fourth quarter as he tried to come back and catch a low pass. He was not hit on the play.

It's a devastating blow for the Colts (5-2) and for Wayne, the 35-year-old receiver who became the ninth member of the league's 1,000-catch club last week. Wayne had started 189 consecutive games, the longest streak among active receivers.

Coach Chuck Pagano would not say whether the AFC South-leading Colts would sign another receiver to replace Wayne during this week's bye.
