INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Colts tight end Coby Fleener returned to practice Wednesday, just a day after sitting out with a concussion. While Fleener was cleared to play, the team said he must undergo more tests before being cleared to play in Sunday’s game against the Giants.
It also appeared that tight end Dwayne Allen continues to make progress in his recovery from a foot injury. He showed up to practice without crutches and just a walking boot.
Colts’ offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton didn’t rule out Fleener or Allen for Sunday. However, if they don’t play, that means Justice Cunningham and Dominique Jones will have to carry the load as the only two healthy tight ends.
“They’re just telling me to be ready,” said Cunningham. “I’ve got to be able to step up when they need me right now. I've got to make the plays when they're presented to me.”
And Hamilton has been impressed with Cunningham so far this training camp.
“When Justice has been given the opportunity to go out there and make plays, he's shown that he's willing to be physical at the point of attack,” said Hamilton. “He had a big play in the passing game this past Sunday, so he's making strides and he's showing that he may be a guy that can compete for playing time in our offense.”
6:45 P.M. UPDATE: Indiana State Police district's located south of Indianapolis say they were busy working many slide-offs and minor crashes due to the weather.
The Big 10 championships are in Indianapolis this weekend.
