Mo Alie-Cox: Inks one-year extension

Alie-Cox signed a one-year extension with the Colts on Monday.

Analysis: Alie-Cox caught his only target for 15 yards in the season finale and finished 2019 with eight catches for 93 yards while mostly working as a reserve tight end. The 26-year-old appeared in all 16 games this season and currently lines up as the No. 2 tight end for 2020 behind Jack Doyle, since Eric Ebron (ankle) is headed for free agency.

Mo Alie-Cox: Snags pass in win

Alie-Cox reeled in a 21-yard catch during Sunday's 38-6 win over Carolina.

Analysis: Alie-Cox helped set up Marlon Mack's second-quarter touchdown plunge with a shot play upfield to put the Colts near the goal line. It was just his second catch since Week 9. The sophomore tight end has just one game with multiple receptions this season, way back in Week 3 against Atlanta. He hasn't seen an uptick in production since Eric Ebron (ankles) headed to injured reserve and it'd be a surprise if he broke out against Jacksonville's 20th-ranked pass defense in the season finale Sunday.

Mo Alie-Cox: Just one reception Sunday

Alie-Cox had one reception for eight yards on his lone target in Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Indianapolis didn't use many two-TE sets in a shootout with Alie-Cox getting just 16 snaps and Ross Travis having five snaps behind Jack Doyle (49 snaps). It doesn't look like Alie-Cox or Travis will be big factors in the passing game even with Eric Ebron on IR with an ankle injury and several other wide receivers sidelined.

Mo Alie-Cox: No receptions Sunday

Alie-Cox played 15 snaps on offense but did not have a reception or target in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: With Eric Ebron out with an ankle injury and several other wide receivers sidelined, Alie-Cox appeared poised for a larger role in the offense. However, Ross Travis got the start as the second TE opposite Jack Doyle and had three targets and more pass routes run (12 compared to three for Alie-Cox). Alie-Cox battled a thumb injury during practices this week, but it looks like Travis may get looks over him in the passing game despite Alie-Cox previously showing promise as a receiver.

Mo Alie-Cox: Ready to rock

Alie-Cox (thumb) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Titans.

Analysis: Alie-Cox battled a thumb injury during practices this week, but he worked without limitations Friday and is ready to retake the field. With Eric Ebron (ankle) now on IR, the 26-year-old could be in line for increased pass-catching work behind Jack Doyle.

Mo Alie-Cox: Questionable Week 13

Alie-Cox (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Alie-Cox sat out the first two practices of the week but worked as a full participant Friday. The 26-year-old has been dealing with the thumb issue over the last couple weeks but again appears likely to play through the injury.

Mo Alie-Cox: Still dealing with thumb injury

Alie-Cox (thumb) didn't practice Wednesday, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: This appears to be routine recovery for Alie-Cox, who suffered this injury in Week 11 but was able to play in this past Thursday's loss to the Texans. It'll be important to follow Alie-Cox's progress, though, as he could be depended on for more pass-catching situations since Eric Ebron (ankle) is on injured reserve.

Mo Alie-Cox: Set for increased role

Alie-Cox may have the opportunity to carve out a larger role on offense with Eric Ebron (ankle) set to land on injured reserve, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

Analysis: Alie-Cox has mostly been utilized as a blocker this season, having logged just five catches for 49 yards across 245 offensive snaps, but in Ebron's absence his role looks primed to expand. The 26-year-old's frame (6-foot-5, 267 pounds) could lend him to red zone usage, though Jack Doyle figures to handle the bulk of receiving work at the tight end position for Indianapolis.

Mo Alie-Cox: No targets Thursday

Alie-Cox wasn't targeted during Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Alie-Cox suited up through a thumb injury for Thursday's divisional clash, but he was relegated to a depth role with both Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle active. The 26-year-old figures to play his usual role as a blocker against the Titans in Week 13.

Mo Alie-Cox: Suits up Thursday night

Alie-Cox (thumb) is active for Thursday night's game against the Texans.

Analysis: Alie-Cox might see some extra work in this one even with Eric Ebron (ankle) active, as Ebron missed a couple days of practice this week. Jack Doyle figures to see the bulk of the work ahead of Alie-Cox anyway.

Mo Alie-Cox: Questionable for TNF

Alie-Cox (thumb) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice but is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Texans.

Analysis: Considering he wasn't limited in practice, Alie-Cox has a good shot to suit up for the divisional clash. The 26-year-old could have a heightened role in the offensive if Eric Ebron (ankle) is unable to play, but he'd still be behind Jack Doyle in the pecking order.

November 20, 2019 12:35 PM EST

Mo Alie-Cox: Turns in limited practice Tuesday

Alie-Cox (thumb) was limited in practice Tuesday.

Analysis: After an estimated DNP on Monday, it's a good sign that Alie-Cox was at least able to get some work in Tuesday. With Eric Ebron (ankle) sitting out for a second-straight day, the Virginia Commonwealth product could be in line for more work Thursday against the Texans.

Mo Alie-Cox: Estimated as non-participant

Alie-Cox (thumb) was estimated as a non-participant on Monday's injury report.

Analysis: Alie-Cox sustained the thumb injury during Sunday's win over the Jaguars and was unable to retake the field, so it's no major surprise to see he wasn't expected to practice one day later. Eric Ebron is also tending to an ankle injury, leaving Jack Doyle as the team's only healthy tight end.

November 18, 2019 1:34 PM EST

Mo Alie-Cox: Done for day

Alie-Cox (thumb) won't return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Analysis: It's unclear how Alie-Cox picked up the injury, but the issue is serious enough to keep him out of game time. With the VCU product sidelined, Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle remain the only healthy tight ends on the roster for the remainder of the game.

Mo Alie-Cox: Gearing up Sunday

Alie-Cox (hip) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars.

Analysis: Despite not practicing all week, Alie-Cox is ready to rock for the divisional matchup. The tight end will mainly be used in a blocking role behind Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle on the depth chart, as Alie Cox has been targeted just seven times over nine contests.

November 17, 2019 9:01 AM EST

Mo Alie-Cox: Questionable for Sunday

Alie-Cox (hip) is quesitonable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Analysis: Alie-Cox didn't practice this week but apparently still has a chance of suiting up Sunday. The 26-year-old has only one catch over the last four games, so the Colts' offense is unlikely to be significantly impacted by his potential absence.

November 15, 2019 12:43 PM EST

Mo Alie-Cox: Remains sidelined Thursday

Alie-Cox (hip) was not spotted at Thursday's practice, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Analysis: Alie-Cox hasn't practiced in any capacity this week, and he looks to be trending toward missing Sunday's tilt against Jacksonville. With Eric Ebron fully healthy and Jack Doyle (shoulder) having returned to practice Thursday, even if Alie-Cox were forced to miss any time it wouldn't be a tremendous loss for the Colts' offense. The 26-year-old mainly contributes as a blocker for Indianapolis.

November 14, 2019 11:19 AM EST

Mo Alie-Cox: Injury concerns surface

Alie-Cox (hip) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Alie-Cox has averaged 22.4 offensive snaps per game, and he mainly works in a blocking role, posting just five receptions for 49 scoreless yards. Jack Doyle (shoulder) also sat out of practice, so the Colts only have one healthy tight end -- Eric Ebron -- remaining. If both Alie-Cox and Doyle can't play Sunday against the Jaguars, the team may promote Ian Bunting from the practice squad to provide depth.

November 13, 2019 1:53 PM EST

Mo Alie-Cox: Two receptions Sunday

Alie-Cox had two receptions for 25 yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

Analysis: Alie-Cox had a season high in targets in receiving yards. Despite improving as a receiver, he's not going to be a viable fantasy factor in most formats as long as Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle stay healthy.
