Doyle had three receptions for 36 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

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 and 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.

EDGE Analysis

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 pay dirt 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.

EDGE Analysis

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 in Week 8.

Doyle, who has missed five games due to a hip injury, is on track to play Sunday against the Raiders, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

We'll have to see if Doyle ends up listed as questionable for Sunday's game, or heads into the weekend without an injury designation. His anticipated return would no doubt bolster the Colts' passing attack, but represents a hit to the fantasy upside of fellow tight end Eric Ebron.

Doyle (hip) participated in Friday's practice, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

It won't be clear until after practice how much Doyle was able to do, but this is his third straight day on the practice field, so he will have a chance to play Sunday for the first time since Week 2.

Doyle (hip) logged another limited practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Frank Reich noted Wednesday that Doyle has a shot to return to action Sunday against the Raiders, but at this stage we wouldn't consider the tight end a lock to suit up in Week 8. If he's limited or out this weekend, Eric Ebron would once again be heavily counted on in the Colts passing game.

Doyle (hip) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle previously hadn't practiced in any capacity since Week 2 when he first injured his hip. Given the length of his absence, it will be hard to have confidence in his status for Sunday's game at Oakland unless he logs a full session by the end of the week. Coach Frank Reich didn't exactly sound confident Wednesday morning, merely noting that he thinks Doyle has a shot to return.

Coach Frank Reich said that Doyle (hip) would practice Wednesday and has a shot at suiting up Sunday against the Raiders, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reich didn't elaborate on how extensively Doyle will be involved in Wednesday's session, but it's a positive sign nonetheless for the tight end, who has missed the Colts' last five games with the hip issue. In light of his lengthy absence and lack of on-field reps during that time, it seems more likely than not that Doyle is ultimately withheld from action Sunday, especially with the Colts heading into a bye week after the contest. If Doyle does demonstrate enough progress in practice this week to earn an active status against Oakland, he may handle only a limited role behind Eric Ebron, who has been highly productive while Doyle has been sidelined.

Doyle (hip) won't play Sunday against the Bills, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

As a result of Doyle still being out, Eric Ebron will once again head the Colts' tight end corps in Week 7, with Erik Swoope and Mo Alie-Cox on hand to work in complementary roles.

Doyle (hip) wasn't spotted on the field for Thursday's practice, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts haven't officially ruled Doyle out for a fifth straight game Sunday against the Bills, but that merely looks like a formality at this point. On a more positive note, coach Frank Reich suggested Wednesday that Doyle was nearing a return to practice, but it's unclear if that will come to pass by the end of the week. Doyle will have a more legitimate shot at playing Week 8 against the Raiders, though the Colts may opt to take a more prudent approach with the tight end with their bye coming a week later.
