Reggie Wayne makes 1,000th catch

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne becomes only the ninth man in history to make 1,000 catches in the NFL.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne made his 1,000th catch in the NFL during his side's 19-9 defeat to the San Diego Chargers last night.

Wayne made the catch with less than 10 minutes remaining in the game, stooping low to collect a 21-yard pass from quarterback Andrew Luck.

The 34-year-old became only the ninth player in history to reach the 1,000 catches landmark and moved into eighth on the all-time receptions list with his 1,001st catch later in the match.

"It's a great honour," Wayne told The AP. "It's a humbling experience to be in an elite class with a bunch of guys who have helped pave the way for guys like myself.

"I wish it was more of a greater celebration. I would rather take the W (win) than any accolades."

Wayne is still some way behind top spot in career receptions, a position currently held by Jerry Rice with 1,549 catches.
