Dwayne Allen is ready to come back full-force in 2014.After missing virtually all of last season with a hip injury, Allen is back participating in organized team activities (OTAs) and looks healthier than ever."It felt real good," Allen told ESPN.com’s Mike Wells. "Everybody talked about the Colts getting Dwayne Allen back, my focus has been getting back to the Colts. It’s been a long season, a long offseason to sit on the sidelines watching the guys going out there and playing. I enjoyed being out there running around and catching balls."Allen hopes to catch more than just one ball this season. In the 2013 season opener, he hauled in a 20-yard touchdown to give the Colts a 14-0 lead against the Oakland Raiders. However, he fell awkwardly on his hip later in the game and that was it—all after just one catch.But now he’s back at full-speed with the Colts offense in OTAs and is slowly starting to feel like his old normal rookie self, when he formed one of the NFL’s best tight end duos with fellow rookie Coby Fleener.“Cautious, not just because of the injury, but giving my body time to adjust back to the game,” Allen said of his take on OTAs via Colts.com. “We don’t play until September and I’m fully aware of that, the coaching staff is and the training staff also.”No. 83 Honorable MentionBrandon Stokley (2003-2006)Stokley joined the Colts in 2003 as a free agent after spending his first four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. As a slot receiver, he was part of a record-breaking offense in 2004 in which he, Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne became the first trio of receivers to record 1,000 receiving yards and 10 TDs in a season. Stokley also caught Manning’s then-record 49th touchdown pass in Week 16 that season.After playing in only four games in 2006 and winning his second Super Bowl ring, he was released by the Colts. He played for seven more seasons with stops in Denver, Seattle, New York and a second stop in Baltimore. He retired following the 2013 season.
