Dwayne Allen injury: Colts TE has MRI on hip

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Allen was the only Colt not to return to Sunday's game because of injury.

Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen exited Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders with an undisclosed hip injury. Allen was the only Colts player not to re-enter the game, according to Kevin Bowen of Colts.com.

Allen had one catch for 20 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game with the hip injury. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said the extent of Allen's injury won't be known until the results of the MRI are known.

Coby Fleener replaced Allen after the injury, but he finished the game with only one catch for seven yards.

The Colts escaped with a 21-17 win after the Raiders threatened to pull off the upset in Week 1.

Allen was on the injury report for Week 1 with a foot injury, so adding another injury to the list is not ideal. The second-year tight end shined as a rookie and was expected to take another step forward in year two. His status should be updated in the coming days.
