Reich: Jack Doyle is ‘ready to roll’ for Week 3

The Colts are getting healthier at tight end as they prepare to take on the lowly Jets.

Friday update: Jack Doyle practiced in full on Friday and is “ready to roll” according to coach Frank Reich. His presence knocks Mo Alie-Cox back down the depth chart, making him a riskier start against the Jets on Sunday.

The Indianapolis Colts lost their No.1 and No. 2 tight ends early in the season to injury, but it appears Jack Doyle is on track to returning sooner than later. Doyle missed last week with an ankle injury, but was able to return to practice on Thursday, per The Athletic’s Zak Keefer.

Doyle will likely be designated as limited for Thursday’s practice, but it’s a great sign for his availability against a poor Jets defense this week. Last week against the Vikings, Mo Alie-Cox was able to put up 111 yards on five receptions. Doyle’s presence could hinder Alie-Cox, but with Parris Campbell out and his strong performance last week, maybe there is room for sustained usage, at least while Trey Burton is out.
