INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Colts normally arrive at camp in Anderson on four wheels. Not Reggie Wayne, not this year anyway.
Number 87 flew in via Lifeline helicopter with 20-year old Plainfield native Matt Sercer, whose airlifted life was saved after a farming accident. The special arrival served a dual purpose.
"Matt nearly lost his life, he's walking after nobody thought he could," said Wayne. "Last year, nobody gave us a shot, and we went to the playoffs. We plan on building off that and continue to prove people wrong."

Andrew Luck had a lot to do with the turnaround, and his comfort level in year two is just where he wants it.
"It's nice not being a rookie, it's nice knowing where everything is, where the cafeteria is, having a sense of familiarity not only with the plays, but the players, and the coaches,"said Luck. "Still that nervous excitement, and really can't wait to get going."
Top pick Bjoern Werner is also ready to get his NFL career started.
"Really excited,"said Werner. "My first time I have to go somewhere for training camp you know, that's something new to me right away. Pretty exciting to me, the camaraderie coming together to just see each other 24-7, you know what I'm saying?"
What camp advice would 11-year veteran Cory Redding give Werner?
"Listen. Work hard. Do what we tell you to do,"said the Texas grad. "Do what the coaches tell you to do and just produce. That's what we need, guys to come in and not take that first year as a learning curve to sit back. You have to come in and go, we have you here for a reason. We need everybody with all hands on deck to get where we want to go."
Everyone will go, beginning Sunday morning.
