INDIANAPOLIS -- Reggie Wayne used the story of a young injured man to send his teammates an emphatic message Saturday. There are no boundaries when you dream big. The Pro Bowl receiver who always makes a grand entrance to start training camp asked Indiana University Healths LifeLine helicopter to give him a lift and invited Matt Sercer, a Colts fan who severely injured his leg and foot in a farming accident in December, to come along for the ride. When they landed on an intramural field at Anderson University, Wayne stood side-by-side to be photographed with Sercer. "A lot of things were not expected of Matt to be able to walk again and things of that nature. But as you can see, hes here standing with me. Got out the chopper, he walked over," Wayne said. "Guys like Matt and stories like Matts, theyre the real heroes. It inspires you to go out there and do great and prove people wrong. A lot of people didnt think Matt would be able to walk again, and hes out here moonwalking with me." For Wayne, the special arrivals -- and the themes that come with them -- have become a regular part of the training camp routine. Last year, Wayne dressed in military fatigues and arrived as part of an Indiana National Guard convoy. He wanted his new teammates to take a page from the military manual by being supportive, selfless warriors who could overcome all obstacles, even those unforeseen. It turned out to be a fitting message as one of the NFLs youngest teams improved form 2-14 to 11-5 and reached the playoffs despite losing Chuck Pagano for 12 games as he battled leukemia. This years message was short and sweet. "I sat back and thought we got a pretty good team. I really think our team this year is better than last year. If we dont hurt ourselves, the skys the limit for us," Wayne said. "I really sat back and thought skys the limit, skys the limit, why not come in through the sky?" Guessing Waynes mode of travel to training camp has become a favourite game among teammates and coaches. It all started in 2002 when Edgerrin James Florida drivers license was suspended, so James and Wayne, teammates in college at Miami and then with the Colts, hired a taxicab to take them from Indianapolis to training camp about 75 miles away in Terre Haute, Ind. The cost was $200. The next year, Wayne and James drove a bus full of children onto the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology campus. When James left as a free agent for Arizona in 2006, the torch was passed to Wayne, who began his solo act by wearing James new Cardinals jersey to training camp. Since then, hes shown up in myriad ways and costumes. Until Saturday, though, he had not arrived through the air. This time, Wayne wore a black Lifeline flight suit, a red Washington Nationals cap and red high-tops but said emphatically that he did not fly the helicopter. Now that the fun part of camp is over, its time to get back to business. Indianapolis will hold the first of three weeks of workouts Sunday on the Division III campus about 25 miles northeast of Indianapolis. The early days are sure to come with some reminders about expectations and not just from Wayne and the veterans. Over the past month, three players ran into trouble off the field. Receiver LaVon Brazill and tight end Weslye Saunders were both suspended by the NFL for violating league policies -- and backup safety Joe Lefeged was arrested in Washington on a gun possession charge. Saunders was cut by the team Thursday after receiving an eight-game suspension for failing a performance-enhancing drug test for the second time in 18 months. Brazill will miss the first four games after violating the leagues substance-abuse policy. "I think youre always concerned and disappointed with problems, but at the same time, you have to realize that its an impossibility that youre going to have zero problems. Thats just not realistic, thats not the way life works," team owner Jim Irsay told The Associated Press earlier this week. "So were disappointed, but at the same time, we deal with it, and we move on and do the best you can to try and avoid any of those problems." Pagano is hoping the immediate focus will be on the field. The Colts are hoping a rebuilt offensive line will better protect Andrew Luck, a revamped defence will be a better fit with Paganos version of the 3-4 defence and that another year of maturation will help the Colts make a deeper playoff run. Meanwhile, Luck flew to South Florida for workouts with Wayne, Brazill and T.Y. Hilton, and returned to California so he could throw with Darrius Heyward-Bey and others before coming to Anderson. Lucks goal? "To get better and try to be the best quarterback for this team and what we need to put ourselves in chances to win games," he said. "Thats what we want to do."

Weve seen MMA fighters go to extreme lengths to make weight (See: Cyborg, Cris) during the years, but just wait until you see what Samantha Diaz did this week for Invicta FC 20. Weighing in on Thursday for her debut fight as a professional, the 23-year-old was at 116.2 pounds -- two ounces over the limit for strawweight.Determined to make weight, Diaz made the unorthodox decision to chop off her hair. Yes, thats right. SHE CUT OFF HER HAIR RIGHT THEN AND THERE. Revealing it took years to grow, she said she was finee with it, but would probably cry once she was properly hydrated.ddddddddddddhankfully, her drastic decision paid off and she weighed in at 115.9 -- and ended up with a remarkably cute haircut to boot.In the words of UFC fighter Leslie Smith, This is pretty gangster.See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared?
