Jack Doyle: Quiet end to 2020 campaign

Doyle caught all three of his targets for 17 yards during Week 17's 28-14 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Doyle had 23 catches (33 targets) for 251 yards and three touchdowns in 14 regular-season games this year. Those mark his lowest receiving totals since 2015, with exception given to the 2018 season in which injuries limited him to just six appearances. The Colts have a potential out from the 30-year-old's contract this offseason, as cutting him would only result in $1.5 million of dead cap. Doyle would carry a $5.85 million cap hit if he does return for Indianapolis in 2021, a price tag which the team may be hesitant to dole out given the inconsistent quality of his play in 2020.

Jack Doyle: Cleared for Week 17

Doyle (quad) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after practicing fully Friday.

Analysis: Doyle didn't practice Thursday, but he's been cleared for Week 17 action after a full session Friday and is in line to continue to split tight end reps with Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox. Doyle caught four of his six targets for 50 yards in last Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Steelers, but overall he's been a hit-or-miss fantasy option while working in a time-share.

Jack Doyle: Added to injury report

Doyle (quad) missed practice Thursday.

Analysis: Doyle was added to the Colts' Week 17 injury report Thursday, so his status will needed to be monitored in advance of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. If he's out or limited this weekend, added tight end snaps/targets would be available for Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox.

Jack Doyle: Registers 50 yards

Doyle caught four of six targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Steelers.

Analysis: Doyle led the Colts' tight end group with 38 of 69 snaps on offense. He registered season highs in receiving yards and receptions. However, those achievements clearly point to the down year that Doyle has endured, as he's posted a 20-234-3 line through 13 games.

Jack Doyle: Cleared to play

Doyle (quad) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Steelers after being listed as a full practice participant Friday.

Analysis: Doyle will be out there Sunday, but he hasn't offered much fantasy value this season, while competing for tight end targets with Mo Alie-Cox and Trey Burton. Overall, he's logged a 16/184/3 stat line through 12 contests, and in his last outing Doyle caught both targets for 14 yards in the Colts' Week 15 win over the Texans.

Jack Doyle: Misses practice with quad issue

Doyle was added to the Colts' Week 16 report Thursday after a quadriceps injury prevented him from practicing.

Analysis: Doyle has previously appeared on reports this season with a concussion along with neck, ankle and knee injuries, but the quad issue is a new concern for the tight end. Given that he wasn't listed on Wednesday's report at all, Doyle likely picked up the injury in practice rather than during last week's win over the Texans. Doyle will now likely need to get back on the practice field in some capacity Friday to have a good chance at playing Sunday against the Steelers.

Jack Doyle: Targeted twice in win

Doyle caught both targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Doyle led his position group with 41 snaps on offense (76 percent), while Mo Alie-Cox and Trey Burton finished with 25 and 19 snaps, respectively. Philip Rivers directed five total targets at the position Sunday, and with a fairly even split between the three tight ends, nobody produced meaningful numbers.

Jack Doyle: Finishes as second-leading receiver

Doyle corralled all three of his targets for 44 yards during Sunday's 44-27 win against the Raiders.

Analysis: Michael Pittman and Nyheim Hines both exceeded Doyle's target share Week 14, but with an efficient day, the Western Kentucky product finished second on the team in receiving output. Sunday's showing marked just the second time all season Doyle has exceeded 30 receiving yards, though he only did so on four occasions during 2019 while earning the second Pro Bowl nod of his career. Doyle's targets are way down in 2020, as he's attracted only 22 after commanding 42 through 11 games last year.

December 15, 2020 6:10 PM EST

Jack Doyle: Musters up 12 yards

Doyle caught his lone target for 12 yards in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Doyle's usage is slipping. For a consecutive game, he finished second among Colts' tight ends in snaps with 38 snaps (55 percent), while Mo Alie-Cox logged 44 snaps (64 percent) and caught three passes for 23 yards. The 30-year-old has an 11-126-3 line through 10 games.

Jack Doyle: Misses lone target

Doyle failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 41-26 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: The 30-year-old received the start but saw less playing time than Mo Alie-Cox and Trey Burton, the latter of which caught three passes for 43 yards and a touchdown. Doyle has only one reception for six yards in three games since catching two passes for 18 yards and a touchdown during Week 8. The playing time from all three tight ends makes any of them difficult to trust, but Doyle appears to be the low man on the totem pole in the passing game.

Jack Doyle: Scores TD against Packers

Doyle had a six-yard touchdown reception on his only target in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

Analysis: Doyle returned after missing a game due to a concussion. Doyle played the most among Indy's tight ends. Trey Burton played on 24 of the offense's 84 snaps while Doyle played on 45 snaps and Mo Alie-Cox played on 43 snaps. However, Doyle went out for a pass just 11 times, which was the least of the trio. Doyle appears to be the least likely to produce in the passing game as a result, but it's hard to depend on any tight end's production with all three active in the passing game.

Jack Doyle: Cleared for Week 11

Doyle (concussion) will play in Sunday's game against the Packers.

Analysis: Doyle officially cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol Saturday, and he won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game. The veteran tight end has been a touchdown-dependant fantasy option, as he hasn't surpassed three receptions or 50 yards in a game this season.

November 21, 2020 9:38 AM EST

Jack Doyle: Deemed questionable for Week 11

Doyle (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Analysis: Doyle wrapped up the week with full practices Thursday and Friday, but since he'll take an injury designation into Sunday since he has yet to officially clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. Assuming Doyle is able to get the green light to play from an independent neurologist before Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, Doyle would likely be part of a three-man timeshare at tight end that also includes Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox.

November 20, 2020 12:14 PM EST

Jack Doyle: Returns to full practice

Doyle (concussion) practiced fully Thursday.

Analysis: Doyle, who suffered a concussion back on Nov. 8, was in the NFL's concussion protocol as of Wednesday, so this is a big step for the Colts' tight end. Friday's final injury report will reveal whether Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox (knee) approach Sunday's game against the Packers with any Week 11 injury designation.

November 19, 2020 1:14 PM EST

Jack Doyle: Still in concussion protocol

As of Wednesday, Doyle remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Doyle, who won't practice Wednesday, per Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star, suffered his concussion back on Nov. 8, so it's concerning that he has yet to gain clearance as the Colts prepare for Sunday's game against the Packers. If Doyle remains out this week, Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox would once again be in line to handle the team's tight end duties in Week 11.

November 18, 2020 9:35 AM EST

Jack Doyle: Remains in concussion protocol

Coach Frank Reich said Monday that Doyle is still in the concussion protocol, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Doyle sat out last Thursday's win over the Titans while in the five-step concussion protocol, and he'll need to achieve full medical clearance prior to retaking the field. If he's unable to get the green light in time for Sunday's game against the Packers, Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox would once again be in line to split Indianapolis' top tight end reps.

November 16, 2020 9:27 AM EST

Jack Doyle: Ruled out this week

Doyle (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Meanwhile, Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is listed as questionable for the contest, leaving Trey Burton as the team's top healthy tight end heading into Week 10. Doyle will now look to gain medical clearance in advance the Colts' Nov. 22 game against the Packers.

November 11, 2020 12:17 PM EST

Jack Doyle: Deemed non-participant Tuesday

Doyle (concussIon) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's estimated practice report.

Analysis: Doyle has yet to make much notable progress through the NFL's concussion protocol after sustaining the head injury in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. With the Colts set to play in Tennessee on Thursday night this week, Doyle likely won't have enough time to clear the protocol. Assuming Doyle ends up sitting out the Week 10 contest, the Colts would roll with Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox as their primary options at tight end.

November 10, 2020 12:34 PM EST

Jack Doyle: Expected to miss Thursday's game

Coach Frank Reich said Monday that Doyle (concussion) is "very unlikely" to suit up against the Titans on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Analysis: Doyle suffered a concussion during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Bears, so he'd need to make extremely quick progress through the league's five-step protocol for any chance of suiting up Thursday. If he can't go Week 10, Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox figure to see increased opportunities as Indianapolis' clear top remaining options at tight end.

November 9, 2020 10:12 AM EST

Jack Doyle: Suffers concussion Sunday

Doyle won't return to Sunday's game against the Ravens after being diagnosed with a concussion, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Analysis: Doyle was targeted with less than a minute left in the first half, but he couldn't reel it in while taking a hard hit from Ravens' safety Chuck Clark. The 30-year-old tight end has officially been ruled out. Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox figure to see increased usage for the rest of the day. Doyle will need to make a quick recovery through the league's five-step concussion protocol in order to be available for Thursday's matchup against the Titans.
