Colts tight end Dwayne Allen got rid of the walking boot on his injured right foot Friday — the final day of practice at Anderson University.

Allen hasn't practiced since complaining of foot pain last Wednesday. Coach Chuck Pagano has said Allen is expected to miss a couple of weeks, but the Colts remain hopeful he will be healthy enough to return for the Sept. 8 season opener against Oakland.

Pagano said Allen would be using a combination of an orthopedic in his shoe a walking boot others as he recovers.

The Colts other prominent tight end, Coby Fleener, was scheduled to have another concussion test later Friday. If he passes, Fleener would be cleared to play Sunday night at New York.
