Colts' Dwayne Allen seeking second opinion on foot

Around The League's "Making the Leap" curse threatens to continue unabated like Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians."

Jones: The Colts' 'meal ticket'

Ultimately, the Colts will only go as far as Andrew Luck can take them -- and they know it. Kimberly Jones reports. **More ...**

Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen, No. 10 on the list, is headed for a second opinion on his foot injury, coach Chuck Pagano said Friday, via the team's official website.

If Allen ends up missing significant time, it'll be a big blow to the Colts' offense. New coordinator Pep Hamilton plans to run a more power-oriented ground attack with heavy use of two tight-end sets. Hamilton has called Allen a "tremendous weapon" who will be featured as both a receiver and a blocker in the "move" tight end role.

Other players suffering from a potential "Making the Leap" curse:

»New York Jets running back Chris Ivory, No. 13 on the list, has been passed on the depth chart by Bilal Powell while Ivory struggles through yet another hamstring injury.

» The Atlanta Falcons' offensive line, No. 34 on the list, lost right tackle Mike Johnson to a season-ending leg injury.

»Washington Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins, No. 36 on the list, has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
