Reggie Wayne's season is officially over.

One day after coach Chuck Pagano confirmed that the Colts receiver had a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, the Colts put their top receiver on season-ending injured reserve. It's the first time in Wayne's 13 NFL seasons he landed on injured reserve, ending a streak of 189 consecutive games played.

Indy (5-2) signed cornerback Jalil Brown to take Wayne's roster spot, though it's still possible the Colts could add a receiver this week. The AFC South leaders have a bye this weekend.

Wayne led the team with 38 catches for 503 yards and also had two TD catches.

Brown was Kansas City's fourth-round pick in 2011.
