'Possibilities are endless' with Dwayne Allen's return


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen played just 32 snaps last season before suffering a season-ending hip injury. His loss took a lot of unique formations out of Indianapolis' playbook as they intended to use a lot of two-tight end sets and feature Allen, the official team website reports.

However, with Allen healed and ready to start training camp, the site says the "possibilities are endless" in how the Colts use Allen and teammate Coby Fleener this season. 

"It makes us a better football team," tight ends coach Alfredo Roberts said of a healthy Allen. "Getting him back is like getting a brand new player."

The Colts expect to be more creative on offense with Allen back in the fold.


Dwayne Allen back at practice for the Colts


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen participated in the team's offseason minicamp drills this week, the Indianapolis Star reported. Allen believes he needs the workouts to get back in shape after a hip injury cost him much of last season.

"It takes that everyday grind to really come back," said Allen. "I've really had to teach myself how to run again. Once I got back going after the first couple of days, it was getting back into my timing with the quarterback. But it's going well. It's getting better and it's about not getting discouraged when you have a setback."


Dwayne Allen cleared for football activities


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/24/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen said Wednesday that he's been cleared to "participate in everything" according to the official team website. He was able to run around and catch passes. Allen hurt his hip in Week 1 of last year and missed the remainder of the season. 

Colts planning to use both tight ends a lot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) With Dwayne Allen fully recovered from his hip injury, the Colts plan to put him and fellow tight end Coby Fleener on the field a lot, often at the same time, reports ESPN.com. 

“We love using tight ends like everybody else,” coach Chuck Pagano told the website. “But (Fleener) took a big step in Year 2 and played really good football for us and will continue to do that. Getting Dwayne back, we're going to have great options there. You get that inline blocker in Dwayne but don't forget that Dwayne is a heck of a pass receiver, too. So we can create a bunch of mismatches with those guys and get them out in space and get the matchups that you want. It's going to be a great situation.”

Pagano said having Allen and Fleener allows for multiple formations and "gives us a lot of flexibility there.”


Colts GM on Dwayne Allen: 'The guy's a beast'

That has general manager Ryan Grigson excited about Allen's 2014 season.

“Dwayne Allen, the guy’s a beast,” Grigson said. “Anyone who game plans against him or watches the tape, or Joe Fan that just sees him how he plays in the red zone, how he plays in traffic, how he blocks at the point of attack, the tempo he plays at and the ferocity he plays at, he’s a guy you want on your team.

“He’s doing very well and we look forward to him having a great year.”

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2013) The Colts officially downgraded tight end Dwayne Allen to doubtful Saturday, leaving him unlikely to play in Week 2 against the Dolphins Sunday. Allen was unable to practice throughout the week, so this does not come as much of a surprise. Coby Fleener is likely to start Sunday.

Colts tight ends both ready to go


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/8/2013) As expected, Colts tight ends Dwayne Allen (foot) and Coby Fleener (knee) are both active for Week 1 against the Raiders. Coach Chuck Pagano had previously said both would be fine for the season opener. Allen figures to start the game, but Fleener, who was quarterback Andrew Luck's tight end in college, will also contribute.

Colts looking for versatility from Dwayne Allen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2013) Dwayne Allen was drafted one round lower than fellow tight end Coby Fleener last year, but has emerged as the starter for the Colts. He caught 45 passes for 521 yards and three scores in 2012.

And now, even more is expected of Allen. Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton told the Indianapolis Star on Thursday that Allen "will play a big role" both as a blocker and receiver.

The former role could prove more important in a Colts offense that has plenty of receiving weapons, including Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey. Keeping franchise quarterback Andrew Luck upright and healthy and opening up holes for a mediocre crew of running backs could be a more critical component to Allen's job description that catching passes.


Colts tight ends getting healthy and ready to roll

(9/4/2013) Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener both play tight end for the Colts, they have both recovered from knee injuries and they will both play Sunday against Oakland, reports the Indianapolis Star. Chuck Pagano gave both players the thumbs up Wednesday.

Allen, who was snagged in the third round of the 2012, is the starter after having outperformed Fleener, who was taken a round earlier in the same draft. Allen finished the season with 45 catches for 521 yards and three touchdowns. Fleener managed 26 catches for 281 yards and two scores. It remains to be seen how much playing time Fleener will receive this year.
