Colts TE Dwayne Allen lost for season with hip injury
Colts second-year TE Dwayne Allen is done for season, coach Chuck Pagano announced during Wednesday's media session.
“It just makes you sick,’’ Pagano said, via the Muncie Star Press.
“We were all hoping that it would be something that with time and with rest he would come around,’’ the coach continued. “He’s a tough, tough, tough kid. But once we got the thing evaluated and saw what the doctors saw in there and what needed to be done ... for the long term, it’s what needed to be done at this time.’’
Allen, a 2012 third-round pick, is the third Colts offensive starter to go down, joining running back Vick Ballard and guard Donald Thomas. He had 45 receptions as a rookie.
