They said it -- WR Reggie Wayne (knee) had surgery last Friday in Miami and has begun the rehab process. His wife is a physical therapist. They met after he underwent knee surgery while in college. “She’s kicking the crap out of him,” the Colts head coach said of Wayne’s recovery. The receiver was scheduled to meet with his surgeon, Dr. John Uribe, Thursday to discuss when he can return to Indianapolis.
