Colts TE Doyle (kidney) headed to IR
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle was placed on injured reserve with a kidney injury that required a procedure at an Indianapolis-area hospital on Sunday night, head coach Frank Reich announced Monday.
Reich told reporters Doyle remains hospitalized. He was taken to the facility following a third-quarter injury in the win over the Miami Dolphins. Reich said Doyle's prognosis is good and he should be released "soon," but his season is over.
Doyle, 28, missed five games earlier this season due to a hip injury. He finishes the season with 26 grabs for 245 yards and two scores in six games, including four catches for 16 yards and a TD in Sunday's game.
The sixth-year pro earned a Pro Bowl nod as an alternate in 2017 after catching 80 passes for 690 yards and four touchdowns.
Doyle was one of only two healthy tight ends for the Colts on Sunday, along with Eric Ebron, who caught two more touchdowns to tie for the NFL lead with 11 this season. Erik Swoope hasn't played since Week 7 with a knee injury, while Mo Alie-Cox missed Sunday's game with a calf injury.
Ebron has 44 catches for 508 yards and the 11 scores this season despite playing just 56 percent of the offensive snaps, a number that was boosted significantly during Doyle's absence between Weeks 3 and 8.
