Reggie Wayne updates when he will return to the practice field on weekly radio show

On Tuesday, it was once again the “Reggie Wayne Show” with Queary and Schultz.

The one-hour show aired on WNDE here are some of the highlights from No. 87:

On Wayne’s rehab and his visit to Dr. Uribe last week in Miami:

“He just wanted to see my progression, where I was at. He was actually pretty excited about it, pretty geeked up of where I am after six weeks. He gave me some good words of encouragement telling me he can’t remember anyone that’s looked this good at this point and time of their surgery. I guess I’m doing something right. He released me to go into that next phase. That next phase is some weight room stuff, some squats, some things like that. It was a great trip.”

“Full-throttle, we are doing everything football related six months from surgery. I’m already a month and a half done basically. Right now, I’m not even looking to that. I’m looking to the three month mark and that’s where I’m able to do straight ahead running. That’s kind of what I have my eyes set on. I want to make sure at that three month mark, I’m ready to go start running, no set backs and so far so good.”

On if Wayne will be good for OTAs, minicamp:

“Yeah, but I doubt if I’ll participate in them. I want to make sure that I’m right. I think training camp is more of an ideal approach. OTAs and stuff, I probably wouldn’t do that stuff if I was 100 percent healthy. I’ve got my goals. I’m breaking them down and hopefully I can get “Comeback Player of the Year” next year. That’s what I want to get accomplished.”

On the play of Da’Rick Rogers against the Bengals:

“I think as a team we knew he was going to have an opportunity to go out there and show what he’s capable of doing. He was out there in practice each week doing a little bit more each time. It was only a matter of time before he was going to get his number called and go out there and really make something happen. I was happy for him and he showed up big for us.”

On LaVon Brazill also recording a two-touchdown game:

“I was very happy because you watch on film and there was times he was open and just didn’t get his number called. But you tell him, ‘Just continue to do your job. It’s going to come your way and when it does, you just make the best of it.’ He was able to some great things for us. He had an outstanding touchdown. He broke like six or seven tackles. He’s one of those guys, just like a T.Y. Hilton, when they have the ball in their hands, it’s almost like a punt return mentality. He was able to go out there and produce, have some good things happen. Hopefully he can build on that.”

On Wayne taking 15 teammates to the Pacers/Heat game and if he’s friends with some of the Pacers:

“Oh yeah. A lot of the guys on their team, they help when it comes to community work, they help support our foundations and vice versa. We help them as well. We all root for each other. We all want to help whenever someone has something going on in the community, you want to help as much as you possibly can with their cause. And that’s just the way it goes. We feel like even though it’s football and basketball, we feel like we are all in the same game. We take pride in that, support each other, support the state of Indiana, the city of Indianapolis and we just want to see each other do well.”
