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.

'Possibilities are endless' with Dwayne Allen's return
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

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

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."

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.”
