Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Jaguars. That'll mean another full slate of snaps for TE Coby Fleener.  But with Matt Hasselbeck under center, he's a shaky TE1.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars after putting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’ll find out whether he’s playing by noon ET on Sunday. If he does, neither Allen nor Coby Fleener will be a recommended TE1. If Allen sits, Fleener will be an option.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday.  He's considered "day-to-day" but has now been out for over a week.  Fantasy owners can't be counting on him in Week 4 lineups.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. His injury isn’t believed to be serious, but he didn’t practice at all this week. Consider Allen questionable for Week 4. His absence should mean more action for TE Coby Fleener, who has just 1 catch on 1 target so far this year. He posted lines of 2-28, 4-127-2 and 5-56-2 with Allen out last year.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano labeled TE Dwayne Allen "day to day" with the ankle injury he suffered in Monday night's loss to the Jets.  It sounds like he avoided a serious injury, but consider him iffy for this weekend's game against the Titans.  Allen didn't see a target on Monday night before exiting in the 2nd quarter.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen suffered an ankle injury in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Jets.  He was ruled out for the rest of the contest at halftime.  Allen missed 18 games over the previous 2 seasons, including 2 last year with a sprained ankle.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen has dropped about 13 pounds this offseason and is currently tipping the scales at 255.  "I felt as the (2014) season went on, I was slower in and out of breaks, slower getting down the field and those are some things that I’m going to work on--my overall speed and conditioning, endurance, strength.”  Allen underwent a pair of hip surgeries back in 2013, which he believes impacted his conditioning last year.  He's had a healthy 2015 offseason, though, and the lighter weight might be an indication that Allen is set to play a bigger receiving role.  He spent a little more than half of his snaps blocking last year, finishing with just 47 targets (25th among TEs).  We'll see if his receiving role grows, but Allen figures to be inconsistent from week to week as long as Coby Fleener is around.

Colts insider Mike Chappell notes that the team is expected to deploy more 3- and 4-WR sets this season.  That makes sense considering Indy has added Andre Johnson, Donte Moncrief, Phillip Dorsett and Duron Carter over the past 2 years.  The news is especially good for Moncrief and Dorsett, who figure to be the #3 and #4 WRs behind Johnson and T.Y. Hilton.  The losers will be TEs Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen.  More 3- and 4-WR sets mean fewer 2-TE looks.  Fleener might lose the most snaps because of his deficiencies as a blocker.  Neither Colts TE projects as a reliable weekly fantasy starter in 2015.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday.  He'll be ready to roll for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Bengals' 16th-ranked TE defense.  Allen will be a TD-dependent fantasy play.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. His injury isn’t believed to be serious, so he has a good chance to return for Round 1 of the playoffs. Allen’s absence should mean more action for TE Coby Fleener, but it’s unclear how long the starters will play in this meaningless finale.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano labeled TE Dwayne Allen (knee) "day-to-day" at his Monday press conference.  Allen underwent an MRI, so it sounds like that showed no serious damage.  Indy doesn't have much to play for against the Titans this weekend, though, so consider Allen less worse than 50/50 to play.  That raises TE Coby Fleener's floor and ceiling.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.  He's considered questionable to return.  Allen was having a brutal outing before going down, dropping all 3 of his targets.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. He didn’t practice all week, so consider him iffy for Week 14. Coby Fleener gets another game as Indy’s feature TE. He’s a fine fantasy starter, despite last week’s dud.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice.  This ankle injury is turning out to be more serious than initially believed.  We'll continue to track Allen's status, but fantasy owners can't be counting on him playing against the Redskins on Sunday.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano admits that TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) might not be ready for this weekend's game against the Redskins.  Allen didn't practice at all last week.  Pagano did say that Allen is "trending in the right direction" and was able to get on the treadmill on Monday.  We'll track his status throughout the week, but owners can't be banking on Allen playing this Sunday.

Fleener and Allen combined for 8 catches, 92 yards and 2 TDs vs. Jacksonville earlier this season.
