From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Nov 17): Allen was carted to the locker room with an ankle injury Sunday night. He'll be evaluated further on Monday to determine the exact nature and extent of the injury. Reports on Monday indicated that the Colts fear he has a high ankle sprain, which is usually a multi-week injury.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): Allen suffered an ankle injury that was reported by Adam Schefter to be a high ankle sprain. While the team is saying Allen's status is "day to day" his passing game role could suffer when he does return. We'll have to see Allen look like his pre-injury self before we can trust him.

Week 12: vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andrew Luck and company bombed the Jaguars for 33/43 yielding 385 net yards, four TDs and zero interceptions en route to a 44-17 shellacking of their divisional rivals back in Week 3. Luck hit his receivers essentially at will, distributing TDs to Hakeem Nicks (four targets for 4/51/1 receiving), Coby Fleener (seven for 4/49/1), Dwayne Allen (six for 4/43/1) and Ahmad Bradshaw (three for 2/18/1) - T.Y. Hilton led the team in receiving yards that day with six for 5/80/0. The Jaguars cold do little to cope with Indianapolis earlier this year. Lately, the Colts have remained as formidable as ever in this phase of the game, with 48/85 for 657 yards passing, six TDs and one interception thrown for Luck over the past two contests. He's spread the wealth around, with 18 targets for 11/221/2 receiving for Coby Fleener; 19 for 9/161/1 flowing to Reggie Wayne; and 13 for 6/95/1 going to T.Y. Hilton. Meanwhile, the Jaguars' pass D has allowed 21/28 for 248 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions to Tony Romo and company (Week 10), and 19/31 for 232 net yards, two TDs and two interceptions to Andy Dalton (Week 9). To date, Jacksonville is ranked 26th in the NFL averaging 261.9 net passing yards allowed per game, with 18 passing scores given up vs. just five interceptions (tied-27th in the NFL) and 28 sacks (seventh) generated Advantage, Indianapolis.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 9 vs NYG (5 / 4 / 48 / 1 rec)
While he wasn't as heavily targeted as his teammate Coby Fleener, Allen was a big part of the Colts offense getting into rhythm early and was rewarded late with a goalline touchdown. Allen still out-snapped Fleener by 16 snaps. That's three consecutive games with a touchdown, and seven touchdowns in nine games. Allen, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Gates and Julius Thomas are the only tight ends with more than five touchdowns.
2014 Week 11 vs NE (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Allen was carted off the field early against New England with an ankle injury, but he appears to be week-to-week and could potentially play in Week 12.
Latest NewsColts | Dwayne Allen won't play in Week 12 (Fri Nov 21, 01:23 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Our View: Coby Fleener will get the majority of targets at tight end and he's a great play this week at the very tough position to solve.
link to story Colts | Dwayne Allen out again Thursday (Thu Nov 20, 02:27 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, Nov. 20, and The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer would bet on Allen sitting out this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Our View: While this is bad for Allen, who will probably not play, it's good for Coby Fleener owners and we see him as a solid TE1 against Jacksonville.
link to story Colts | No practice for Dwayne Allen (Wed Nov 19, 05:01 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. Our View: We'd be shocked if Allen plays this week. He might have a high ankle sprain, and that means he could be down for at least Week 12 if not longer. Expect a lot of Coby Fleener this week.
link to story Colts | Dwayne Allen out this week? (Mon Nov 17, 06:01 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) will miss at least a week after suffering an ankle injury in Week 11, head coach Chuck Pagano hinted in a press conference. Our View: Pagano is 'hinting' here, but reading between the lines it appears doubtful that we'll see Allen in the lineup in Week 12.
link to story Colts | Dwayne Allen hopes to play (Mon Nov 17, 02:39 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) said he is considered day-to-day and hopes to be able to play in Week 12 after suffering a sprained ankle in Week 11. Our View: Hope all you want, but if this is a high ankle sprain, then Allen won't be himself if he does play. Have another option at TE ready to go.
