Dwayne Allen TE IND 15 Hrs
Though the Colts did not practice Thursday, Allen (knee) was listed as a non-participant on the practice report posted by the team, Tom James of the Tribune-Star reports.
Per Kevin Bowen of Colts.com, coach Chuck Pagano has indicated that Allen likely won't play Sunday against the Titans, and in such a scenario, Coby Fleener and Jack Doyle would handle the team's Week 17 tight end duties.

Allen (knee) did not practice Wednesday, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Coach Chuck Pagano called Allen day-to-day earlier this week, but given that the Colts have little to play for in Week 17 with their playoff seeding all but set, there's a solid chance that the Colts will err on the side of caution with Allen on Sunday against the Titans.

Allen had an MRI on his knee injury, but it's not as bad as the ankle injury that kept him out a few games earlier this season, head coach Chuck Pagano said.
Pagano called Allen day-to-day, but it's hard to see him playing this week when the Colts have little to play for in Week 17 with their playoff seeding all but set. Still, it sounds like Allen will be available for the playoffs.

Allen left Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a knee injury, according to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star.
Prior to his exit from Sunday's game, Allen did not record a catch on three targets. As long as he is sidelined, Coby Fleener is line to see extra snaps at tight end for the Colts.

Allen had two receptions for 16 yards, including a three-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over Houston.
Allen was again a red zone threat as he has eight touchdowns in 12 games. He had four targets to Coby Fleener's five targets as the two will likely split targets at tight end with both players healthy.

Allen (ankle) caught just one pass on three targets for five yards in Sunday's 25-24 win at Cleveland.
Allen did draw a huge pass interference call on the Colts' game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter, but that's of little consolation to fantasy owners that needed his production. Meanwhile, fellow TE Coby Fleener was more effective, catching 5-of-10 targets for 56 yards. Assuming Allen didn't suffer any setbacks, he should be more productive moving forward, however. His next test will come in Week 15 at home against the Texans.

Allen (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.
Allen has missed two straight games with the ankle injury, but logged enough practice time this week to warrant an active status. Although fellow tight end Coby Fleener should see more work between the 20s, look for quarterback Andrew Luck to look Allen's way as well, especially in the redzone. He had seen eight red zone targets in 10 games prior to suffering the injury.

While the Colts have their share of viable targets in the passing game, including fellow TE Coby Fleener, Allen -- who has caught 26 passes for 374 yards, with seven TDs in 10 games -- merits attention in TD-heavy formats in his likely return to action this week.
