Reggie Wayne opened up to Eyewitness Sports about returning to the field this year after last year's injury to his ACL.

He said the biggest motivating factor to work through the injury was his son.

"Reggie Junior came up to me and he said, 'Daddy, so are you going to play football again? Is this it?' I told him, 'No, man. Dad's gonna be out there next season. Dad will be just like you've seen him since you've been born.' That alone was motivation because at the end of that, he said, 'Good, 'cuz I want to see you play.' So that was motivation for me to go out there with the team and play, just so my kids can see it. I didn't want the last thing for them to see was me being helped off the field."

You can hear more from Reggie, along with Andrew Luck, Pat McAfee and Gary Brackett during our Colts Kickoff Special Thursday at 8:30 p.m. on Channel 13.
