He was signed to the practice squad on October 10 and released on October 16. Jones was then signed to the Miami Dolphins practice squad on October 23 and released on November 19.

With a plethora of rookie players on the Colts roster, each week will take a look at how the first-year players performed.

Dwayne Allen, TE: Allen had just two catches on Sunday but they came at critical times. His 40-yard screen pass early in the second quarter came with the Colts down 17-7 and led to Coby Fleener’s touchdown. Allen’s second catch, a 10-yarder, came on the game-winning touchdown drive.

Vick Ballard, RB: Ballard had nine carries for 41 yards on Sunday to go along with three receptions for 21 yards. Ballard’s 11-yard touchdown run to begin the second half scoring was his first career NFL rushing touchdown.

LaVon Brazill, RB: Brazill scored his first career NFL touchdown on Sunday as he slipped past the defense for a 42-yard score late in the fourth quarter. Brazill leads the Colts with 17.8 yards per catch.

Coby Fleener, TE: Fleener was back in the lineup after a shoulder injury that kept him out since Oct. 28. Just like Brazill, Fleener had only one catch but it was immense. Fleener hauled in a 26-yard touchdown in the second quarter for his first NFL score.

T.Y. Hilton, WR: Hilton recorded yet another 100-yard receiving day (on six catches). Hilton now has four games of at least 100 receiving yards on the season and his 588 receiving yards ranks third on the team. Hilton’s 60-yard first quarter grab was the longest reception of the season for the Colts.

Andrew Luck, QB: Luck was 24-of-54 for 391 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions on Sunday afternoon. It was an eventful afternoon for Luck who led a 75- and 80-yard touchdown drive in the final five minutes.

Delano Howell, S: Howell was signed on Tuesday and saw his first action in a Colts uniform, playing on special teams on Sunday.

Rookie wide receiver Nate Palmer, tight end Dominique Jones, and offensive tackle Bradley Sowell were inactive against the Lions.

Each week will take a look at the rest of the AFC South and review the previous weekend’s games.

Texans 24, Titans 10

-The Texans became one of three AFC teams to clinch a playoff spot on Sunday as they earned their 11th win of the season behind another stellar defensive performance. Houston sacked Titans quarterback Jake Locker six times and also picked off the second-year pro three times. Throw in three lost fumbles by the Titans and it was a turnover-plagued afternoon for the home team. Houston jumped out to a 21-3 lead midway through the second quarter behind a pair of touchdown passes by quarterback Matt Schaub and a touchdown run by Arian Foster. Houston now has a two-game lead for the top overall seed in the AFC.

NEXT GAME: @New England, 12/10 at 8:30 p.m.


Texans 24, Titans 10

-Hoping to gain ground on the AFC Wild Card picture, the Titans couldn’t overcome six turnovers in dropping their record to 4-8. Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker threw three interceptions and also lost a pair of fumbles. The Titans cut the Houston lead to 24-10 late in the third quarter on a 34-yard touchdown to wide receiver Kenny Britt. On the next Tennessee possession, the Titans drove down to the Houston seven-yard line but two incompletions led to a fourth down lost fumble. Tennessee would drive into Houston territory on its next possession as well but turned the ball over on downs at the Houston 33-yard line with 4:28 remaining.

NEXT GAME: @Indianapolis, Sunday at 1:00 p.m.


Bills 34, Jaguars 18

-Leading 10-7 late in the first half, the Jaguars gave up 10 points in the final two minutes of the first half and couldn’t put together a second half comeback. Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts III had 12 catches for 74 yards but his fourth quarter touchdown proved to be too little too late. Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne scored from one-yard out with 3:47 to go in the first half to give the Jaguars a 10-7 lead. However, the Bills would answer with tight end Scott Chandler hauling in an 11-yard touchdown catch with 1:58 left and Buffalo would add a 29-yard Ryan Lindell field goal with 31 seconds remaining in the half. Buffalo would score an early third quarter touchdown to conclude a 17-point stretch over a 6:02-period spanning over the second and third quarters.

NEXT GAME: N.Y. Jets, Sunday at 1:00 EST.
