Colts #1 tight end, Dwayne Allen, downgraded from "Questionable" to "Doubtful" for Tomorrow's Game

Allen hurt his hip against the Raiders, and though his post-game MRIs didn't find serious injury, he must not have recovered enough to play tomorrow. Despite being the second tight end the Colts drafted in 2012, Allen is indisputably their best tight end. As a rookie, he quickly became one of the best blocking tight ends in the NFL, and he had 521 receiving yards at 11.8 yards per catch to boot. Allen's injury likely means more snaps for Coby Fleener, who had just 281 receiving yards in 12 games last year at 10.8 yards per catch and isn't nearly as good a blocker as Allen. While every injury is unfortunate, in terms of matchups, the loss of Allen robs the Colts of an excellent blocker and therefore improves the Dolphins' pass rush.
