Dwayne Allen (calf) has been placed on IR by the Indianapolis Colts .
In a corresponding move, the Colts promoted fellow tight end Erik Swoope to their 53-man roster, while Allen's disappointing 2015 campaign concludes with a modest total of 16 catches for 109 yards and one TD in 13 games.
Dwayne Allen pulled in his lone target of the game for a six-yard reception in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.
After recording more targets than his counterpart, Coby Fleener, for just the second time of the season in Week 12's victory over Tampa Bay, Allen returned to the role of Robin on Sunday against Pittsburgh. Allen wasn't a prolific receiver in 2014 either, never hauling in more than four passes in a game, but he remained a fantasy threat by posting eight touchdowns. Allen hasn't found the end zone since Week 1 of this season, thus eliminating his fantasy value.
Allen has been a nonfactor in the Indy passing game most of the season, but the four targets are the second most he's had in a game this year.
Dwayne Allen had just one reception for seven yards and was targeted just one time in Sunday's win at Atlanta.
A change to Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback didn't alter Allen's role in the passing game as he's largely been invisible the past seven games. Allen has just 12 targets in his last seven games.
Dwayne Allen was targeted three times but did not have a reception in Sunday's win over Denver.
Allen has become a non-factor in the Indy passing game as he has just 11 targets in his past six games. Unfortunately that trend didn't change in the first game under new offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski.
