Reggie Wayne has seen a resurgence in his career since Andrew Luck took over for Curtis Painter -- who, of course, took over for Peyton Manning. The Colts receiver caught 75 passes in 2011, the only season of the Painter era, and it was Wayne's lowest total since 2003.

But after the team drafted Luck, he and Wayne connected 106 times last season for 1,355 yards, and his career took off again

That chemistry has continued into this year, and after catching his fourth pass from Luck vs. the Chargers on Monday, Wayne became the ninth receiver in NFL history to record 1,000 catches.

He tied Hines Ward on the career list, but after another catch with 1:41 to play, Wayne surpassed Wayne to rank No. 8 all by himself.

Next on the list to catch is Isaac Bruce with 1,024.
