‘‘You want to have a vet in every room that is a pro, that knows how to prepare on and off the field, and shows up on Sunday,’’ said Arians, a 20-year NFL assistant who called Wayne’s showing Sunday one of the top three receiving performances he’s ever seen. ‘‘I think we’re fortunate that we have one of those guys in every room, especially in that (receivers) room where we’re so young. ... Having Reggie, especially with Andrew, the trust factor is huge.’’
And so is the knowledge that he is passing along to the Colts’ young players, the same way Harrison and Manning did for him more than a decade ago.
‘‘You watch him yesterday, and that’s pretty much what we see in practice every day,’’ rookie T.Y. Hilton said. ‘‘You see someone work that hard for that long, and that’s what happens.’’
Notes: The Colts waived tight end Dominique Jones and placed guard Seth Olsen on injured reserve Monday. Olsen has been designated as the player who can return later this season. Indy also signed receiver Kris Adams, who was released last week, to the practice squad.
