Indianapolis Colts tight end Mo Alie-Cox is officially listed as questionable on the Week 9 NFL injury report. He’s dealing with knee injury, leaving his status up in the air ahead of Sunday’s game. He was able to practice on Wednesday, but sat out the next day, before getting in some limited work on Friday.

The fact that he was in and out of practice all week could signal that he’s not fully healthy, even if he does play. If that’s the case, Trey Burton and Jack Doyle would see an increased workload this week.

Indy’s tight end picture is a little fuzzy in the best weeks. Alie-Cox caught three passes on four targets for 37 yards last week. Burton, who’s been the best bet for fantasy purposes among all the team’s tight ends, nine yards on three catches, but scored a rushing touchdown. Doyle scored for the second time in two weeks.
