The Indianapolis Colts expect offensive lineman Mike McGlynn and tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen to be ready for the season opener against the Oakland Raiders, according to Kevin Bowen of the official team website.
Fleener is the biggest name there as the presumptive starting tight end. He sprained his knee during a preseason game against the New York Giants and has been ruled out for the team's fourth preseason game. An MRI on his knee came back negative so it seems he is being held out as a precautionary measure more than anything.
Allen is Fleener's primary backup, and has been sidelined throughout the entire preseason with a foot injury. Allen is expected to see significant action alongside Fleener this year, and might also be ready for the fourth preseason game, but could be being held out as a precaution.
McGlynn was the starting right guard before suffering a knee injury in practice. Jeff Linkenbach is playing in his place until he returns, though McGlynn has struggled mightily and could conceivably lose his job even when he comes back in Week 1. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.
