INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen recently said during a radio interview that he’s completely healthy after missing all but one game last season with a hip injury.

“I’m great. I’m actually back to 100 percent,” Allen said on WFNI-1070 AM in Indianapolis.

Allen’s second season came to an end when he landed awkwardly on his hip after going up for a pass from quarterback Andrew Luck that Oakland’s Kevin Burnett tipped in Week 1.

Allen, who had 45 receptions for 521 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie in 2012, eventually had hip surgery, ending his season.

Allen’s return will help the Colts, especially offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, because it’ll allow them to run more two-tight end sets with Coby Fleener. Allen, who is a strong blocker, also gives Luck another option to throw to along with Fleener, receivers T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne and recently signed Hakeem Nicks.
