News: Allen (hip) was on the field for ten snaps in Thursday's preseason game against the Jets. Impact: Neither Allen nor Coby Fleener drew any targets, as Hakeem Nicks and T.Y. Hilton hogged Andrew Luck's attention. Allen is listed atop the team's initial depth chart at tight end, but he may have to compete with Fleener for snaps, at least to some extent. The Colts could also make frequent use of two-tight end sets, although that looks less attractive with a wideout trio of Nicks, Hilton and Reggie Wayne (knee). Allen is a better blocker than Fleener, and while the latter was expected to be a superior receiving threat, the former was better in that regard in 2012. Allen, of course, lost nearly all of 2013 to a hip injury, from which he seems to have made a full recovery.(RotoWire, )
