Colts tight ends do little in preseason opener
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Colts tight ends split playing time pretty evenly during Thursday's preseason opener, though Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener didn't see much action beyond the first few drives.

According to the team's official site, Allen played 10 snaps against the Jets, while Fleener saw the field for eight plays. Both players were on the field for the first play, but neither came away from a reception.

Fleener saw a larger role a year ago, with Allen sidelined for all but one game with a hip injury.

Colts have more trust in Coby Fleener
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Colts tight end coach Alfredo Roberts said Coby Fleener was a different player last season than he was as a rookie. Roberts noted Fleener excelled in the postseason with 11 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown. 

"One is a trust factor," Roberts told the team's website. "He grew and he challenged himself to make plays and he showed up, especially in big games."

After catching 26 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, Fleener hauled in 52 passes for 608 yards and four scores last season. Both he and tight end Dwayne Allen, now recovered from a hip injury, are expected to be used heavily in 2014.

Colts planning to use both tight ends a lot
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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.”

More blocking in Coby Fleener's future
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With Dwayne Allen coming back from a season-ending injury, Coby Fleener was already looking at losing some playing time. Now he might lose some opportunities to catch the ball as Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said from the NFL Owners Meetings that Fleener will need to block more

"We're going to ask him to do some of the heavy lifting," Pagano said of Fleener to the Indianapolis Star, noting that he and Allen will be interchangeable at tight end.

Coby Fleener: Trent Richardson trade was 'great'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Colts tight end Coby Fleener is overlooking the numbers in his assessment of the trade that brought running back Trent Richardson from Cleveland for a 2014 top draft pick. He called the swap "great" for the Colts and expects Richardson to thrive after a full offseason with the team.

"I think part of it is you're coming into an offense that's probably one of the most complex in the NFL," Fleener told NFL.com. "And so for him to play a week after being there was impressive because it took me a year and a half to learn the offense. I think this camp will do him a lot of good, and then you guys can judge him after that."

Richardson's production deteriorated to the point in which he was barely used in the playoffs. He averaged just 2.9 yards per carry after the trade and lost his featured back spot to Donald Brown.
