The COVID-19 pandemic has made it tough for position groups to hang out away from the facility. Doyle and Burton are both married with kids. If they were to hang out, it would be at Alie-Cox’s bachelor pad, offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni joked. It’s there where Alie-Cox probably shows more of his personality because he’s usually pretty quiet -- unless you get him going talking about basketball.

Alie-Cox wasn't supposed to be playing in the NFL. His professional path was going to be in the NBA or overseas after his four-year college basketball career at VCU. But the Colts brought the former power forward in and the coaching staff transformed him into a route-running tight end who has been able to use his above-the-rim playing style to go up and snatch passes from quarterbacks.
"Mo has just made so many great strides and has become such a better football player," Doyle said. "It’s just so fun. I love Mo. It’s so fun to see and to see him do well. He is just a big guy who can overpower and make a lot of plays and is a heck of a blocker. A lot of times you don’t see that from guys that make that transition from basketball.”
Thanks for sharing @MobileMunchies. Mo needs to get back to being the player he is in assisting @Colts with wins. I also want to see him as a viable fantasy TE, so that he can help me, bank on him! Go Colts!!
