Indianapolis does not have deadly tight ends

This is arguably the weakest depth-chart position for the whole team. With Jack Doyle already ruled out for Sunday, Mo Allie-Cox is now the top Colts tight end who should see targets from Philip Rivers this week.

Allie-Cox has caught 17 passes in three years and no other Indianapolis tight end is going to incite any fear in opposing defensive coordinators.

Doyle could have potentially made an impact on Sunday. But the Vikings no longer have to worry about him causing any problems for their defense.

In a season where Minnesota will see tight ends like Rob Gronkowski, T.J. Hockenson, Jonnu Smith, and Jared Cook lining up on the other side of the ball, Allie-Cox and the rest of the Indianapolis tights ends are not all that scary.

The Vikings defense typically does well when it comes to containing their opponent’s tight ends, thanks in part to the skills of linebacker Eric Kendricks. So Minnesota shouldn’t have any trouble with the tight ends that the Colts will be trotting out onto the field this Sunday.
