Coby Fleener exits Colts game with sprained knee

Coby Fleener's disappointing preseason continues.

The Indianapolis Colts tight end was forced out of Sunday night's 20-12 victory over the New York Giants after suffering a knee sprain.

Fleener will have more tests on his knee Monday, Fox Sports 1's Mike Garafalo reported.

"I think it'll be all right. I'm up and walking on it," Fleener said.

The injury occurred late in the second quarter, as Fleener was attempting to make a tackle following a Matt Hasselbeck interception.

The injury came on a night when Fleener continued to show issues with ball security. He couldn't hold onto an Andrew Luck pass in traffic on the Colts' first possession, his third drop of the preseason. He also fumbled in the Colts' preseason opener.

It's unclear how long Indianapolis will be without Fleener. The Colts already are missing tight end Dwayne Allen, who is recovering from a foot injury. Indy will be in the market for a tight end if Fleener is forced to miss extended time.
