Doyle (oblique) participated in practice Saturday, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.
Doyle didn't play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Bills with what was described as a minor oblique issue. That injury appears to have dissipated, opening the door for the veteran tight end to return to the practice field.
Doyle (oblique) won't play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Bills.
Doyle is dealing with a minor oblique injury, so he'll sit this one out, as will fellow tight ends Eric Ebron and Ross Travis (hamstring). Doyle's next chance to suit up will arrive Aug. 17 against the Browns.
Doyle is contending with a minor oblique injury, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.
Doyle continues to move past the hip and kidney issues he dealt with last season, but his latest injury is not viewed as a major concern, and he should be back in action before long. Once healthy, Doyle will continue to compete for tight end looks with Eric Ebron.
Doyle (hip/kidney) took part in 11-on-11 drills Thursday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
It's a good sign at the beginning of training camp, though Doyle may be limited or absent once the team holds practices with pads and hitting. He's still working his way back to full strength after he lost 25 pounds in the process of recovering from kidney and hip surgeries. Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (groin) doesn't seem to have any limitations.
Doyle (hip/kidney) will be eased into practice early in training camp, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Doyle reportedly made a full recovery from his surgeries, but he lost approximately 25 pounds in the process and may still need more time to regain his old physique. He ran routes at full speed during June minicamp, putting him on the right track for a Week 1 appearance. Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (groin) wasn't mentioned on the list of players that will be eased into practice at training camp.
Doyle (hip) is still in the process of regaining weight and isn't ready to specify any timeline for his return to practice, George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin reports.
Doyle estimates that he lost 25 pounds after having kidney surgery in November and hip surgery during the offseason. His body has healed from both procedures, but he needs more time to build up strength and body mass before the Colts clear him for contact work in practice. The 29-year-old tight end was limited to individual drills during the offseason program, including full-speed route running at June minicamp. Despite the clear signs of progress, he may be limited or even unavailable when the Colts open training camp in late July. Once he's back on the field, Doyle will join Eric Ebron (groin) in a prolific offense that hopes to find regular targets for at least two tight ends.
Doyle (hip) ran routes Thursday at full speed, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Doyle had surgery to repair a lacerated kidney in November and then had a procedure on his hip during the offseason. He wasn't able to practice with teammates this spring, but Colts general manager Chris Ballard said the tight end could receive medical clearance to practice by mid-June. Even if the optimistic timeline doesn't come to fruition, Doyle appears on track to participate at the outset of training camp. He'll battle for snaps with fellow tight end Eric Ebron (groin), who returned to individual drills earlier this week after having an offseason surgery of his own. The Colts will use some two-TE formations to keep both players on the field, but they'll need to make a difficult choice when they go three-wide. Doyle is a better blocker and drops fewer passes, while Ebron's advantage in speed makes him vastly superior as a vertical receiving threat.
Doyle (hip) has introduced cutting and "position-specific movements" into his rehab process, Mike Chappell of FOX 59 Indianapolis reports.
General manager Chris Ballard said Doyle may receive medical clearance as soon as mid-June and should be ready for the start of training camp. The 29-year-old tight end lost 20 pounds in the early stages of his recovery from a lacerated kidney and hip surgery, but he's regained most of the weight over the past couple months. Doyle peaked at 80 catches in 2017, averaging 60.6 snaps per game on a team with no Andrew Luck and little in the way of receiving options behind Doyle and T.Y. Hilton. Following the emergence of Eric Ebron (groin) last season, Doyle likely will have to settle for a smaller workload, though he did average 55.2 snaps, 5.5 targets and 4.3 catches in six 2018 appearances.
Doyle (hip) remains on track for the start of training camp, Andrew Walker of Colts.com reports.
Although he doesn't have much shot at participating in the offseason program, Doyle at least seems to have avoided setbacks while rehabbing from November surgery to address a lacerated kidney and subsequent offseason surgery for a hip injury. Even if he comes back at full strength, his everydown role from 2017 and early 2018 may be gone after fellow tight end Eric Ebron exploded for 14 touchdowns last season. The Colts hope to find enough targets to keep both players happy, but it might get tricky if T.Y. Hilton stays healthy and Devin Funchess lives up to his one-year, $10 million contract. It's a problem any team would love to have.
Head coach Frank Reich said Doyle (hip) is expected to return to form in time for training camp, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports. "I feel good about it," Reich said.
Doyle missed five games with a hip injury early last season and then suffered a lacerated kidney four games after his return, making a grand total of six appearances in 2018. He underwent surgery this offseason to alleviate the lingering pain in his hip, and it seems he's been setback-free in his recovery considering the expectation has always been that Doyle will return for training camp, as the tight end stated in February. Doyle is entering his age-29 season as well as the final year of his contract with the Colts, but more concerning than anything is his ability to co-exist with fellow tight end Eric Ebron, who grabbed 13 touchdowns in 16 games last season.
Doyle (kidney) had offseason hip surgery and hopes to be ready for training camp, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
Doyle missed Weeks 3 though 7 of the 2018 campaign with a hip injury and later landed on injured reserve when he suffered a kidney laceration in late November. The second issue may have pushed back his timeline for getting the hip addressed, but he's still hoping to get back on the practice field by late July or August. Once he's back up to speed, Doyle may find himself in a timeshare with Eric Ebron, who erupted for 750 receiving yards and 14 total touchdowns in 2018.
Doyle, who underwent season-ending surgery in November to address a lacerated kidney, admitted Sunday that he could require another procedure during the offseason to address a hip/lower-back injury, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
Doyle first developed the hip issue Week 2 and missed more than a month before returning to game action Week 8 in Oakland. He would go on to play four consecutive contests before being shut down for good when he required the emergency surgery for his kidney. While Doyle noted that none of his health issues are considered career-threatening, he's still continuing to recover from the November surgery and could get his hip fixed while he's on the mend. For what it's worth, Doyle said he expects to be ready to go for OTAs in May, but that's far from a certain thing at this juncture.
Coach Frank Reich said Wednesday that Doyle (kidney) was discharged from the hospital and is "doing well" in his recovery from surgery, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.
Though it wasn't announced that Doyle suffered an injury in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Dolphins, it was revealed a day later that he was hospitalized after requiring an emergency procedure to address a kidney issue. The Colts moved Doyle to injured reserve Monday, paving the way for Eric Ebron to act as the team's clear top target at tight end the rest of the season. Reich noted that Doyle is expected to make a "quick, speedy recovery" from the procedure, setting the 28-year-old up to enter the 2019 campaign at full strength. Doyle wrapped up an injury-plagued 2018 season with 26 receptions for 245 yards and two scores across six appearances.
Doyle will be placed on injured reserve after suffering a kidney injury during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Dolphins, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Doyle was admitted to the hospital following the game to undergo an immediate procedure and is expected to be released from the hospital soon, per Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis. Eric Ebron has proven more than capable of shouldering the pass-catching burden at tight end, but he's a clear downgrade from Doyle as a run blocker. The 2014 first-round pick drew 50 targets in five games when Doyle was sidelined between Weeks 3 and 7 with a hip injury. This doesn't sound like a medical issue with potential to impact Doyle's availability for the start of the 2019 campaign.
Doyle is expected to land on injured reserve after suffering an undisclosed injury during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Dolphins, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.
Doyle played a season-low 38 offensive snaps (55 percent) against Miami, hauling in each of his four targets for 16 yards and a touchdown. It's unclear if Doyle's injury is related to the hip issue that caused him to miss five consecutive games in the first half of the season. Whatever the case, Eric Ebron should now have volume consistency to go with the enormous touchdown upside he has already displayed. Coach Frank Reich is expected to provide more insight into Doyle's situation later Monday.
Doyle caught all four of his targets for 16 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Dolphins.
Doyle's long gain went for just seven yards, but he salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a one-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. Meanwhile, Eric Ebron enjoyed more targets and receiving yardage, adding a pair of touchdown grabs of his own. While still involved in the passing attack, Doyle has taken a backseat to Ebron and and T.Y. Hilton, who continue to thrive alongside Andrew Luck. He'll hope to make a bigger impact next Sunday against the Jaguars.
Doyle caught all four of his targets for 43 yards during Sunday's 38-10 win over Tennessee.
After being sidelined for an extended period with a hip injury, Doyle is still easing into things with seven catches for 79 yards in his past two games after a six-catch return in Week 8. His 14 targets since his return, as compared to Eric Ebron's six, shows how he's valued in Indianapolis, but Ebron has still arguably been more valuable with three touchdowns during that span to Doyle's one. Monitor whether Ebron continues to essentially vulture touchdowns from Doyle and the rest of Indy's receivers next Sunday against a middle-of-the-pack Miami defense.
Doyle had three receptions for 36 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.
After Doyle had six receptions and seven targets last week in his first game back after missing five games due to a hip injury, it looked like he would dominate the targets at tight end. His performance was underwhelming and paled in comparison to Eric Ebron's three-touchdown performance. However, it's worth noting that Ebron played just 21 snaps on offense while Doyle played 48 snaps. Ebron had a similar number of targets.
Doyle caught six of seven targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-28 win over the Raiders.
A hip injury had kept Doyle out since Week 2, but he returned in style, leading the team in receiving yards. The highlight of his day was a 10-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Fellow tight end Eric Ebron also found paydirt in this one, showing that the talented pair should be able to coexist after the team's Week 9 bye.
Doyle (hip) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Raiders after practicing fully Friday.
Doyle is thus poised to see his first game action since injuring his hip in Week 2 action. Upon his return, he should re-emerge as a key target for QB Andrew Luck, though the presence of fellow tight end Eric Ebron, who handled a high-volume role in Doyle's absence, suggests that ample targets for Doyle may not be available every week. He therefore profiles as a hit-or-miss fantasy option Week 8.
