Indianapolis (AFP) – The Indianapolis Colts will be without Reggie Wayne for the rest of the NFL season after the wide receiver tore a knee ligament in Sunday’s win over Denver.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano confirmed at a new conference on Monday that Wayne had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and would require surgery.

“He’ll have to get that thing fixed,” Pagano said.

Wayne was hurt on a non-contact play while trying to catch a low pass from Andrew Luck in the fourth quarter of the Colts’ 39-33 win over the Broncos. The game marked Denver quarterback Peyton Manning’s first return to Indianapolis to face the team he led for 14 seasons.

Wayne, a 34-year-old veteran, was leading the Colts with 38 receptions and 503 yards in seven games. His streak of 189 consecutive games, longest among active players, will come to an end.

Wayne is in his 13th NFL season, all with the Colts. Pagano was confident he’ll be back with the team eventually.

“He’ll get his surgery, he’ll rehab, he’ll grind,” Pagano said. “He’ll do whatever it takes to get back on that field. He’s not going out like this,” he said.

Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog

What makes Trump supporters so loyal to a president who is wrecking the country and the world is one of the great mysteries of our time. And the latest political scientist to ponder this problem is Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog, whose obscene, cigar-chomping wisecracks you may recall from his many appearances on Saturday Night Live.

Now working as a "correspondent" for Stephen Colbert's Late Show, Triumph recently convened a focus group of real live Trump supporters to discuss current issues, such as the dismantling of Confederate statues and unemployment. The group watched some fictional Trump-Pence campaign ads to gauge their reaction to potentially extreme proposals by their idol.

Even Triumph, who always presumes human stupidity, was exasperated by their answers.

It's uproariously funny, the way only a gang of mindless Trumpists can be.
