Turbin had three carries for 15 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown, and two receptions for 18 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.
Turbin had a career revival with seven rushing touchdowns mostly as a goal-line back, and also added a receiving touchdown. The impending free agent will likely find a strong market for his services if he doesn't return to the Colts.
Turbin rushed for 18 yards on six carries and added 11 yards and a score on two catches in Saturday's loss to Oakland.
Turbin slipped out into the flat late in the third quarter and was wide open for a three-yard touchdown catch. The score was Turbin's fifth in six games after just two touchdowns in his first eight contests. The soon-to-be free agent doesn't get many touches, but when he does they tend to be around the end zone. Of his 26 carries since the bye, 10 have come in the red zone.
Turbin had seven carries for 32 yards, including two touchdowns, in Sunday's win at Minnesota. He also had two receptions for 22 yards.
While Frank Gore had 101 yards rushing, it was Turbin who got the touchdowns in short-yardage situations (one-yard and six-yard touchdown runs). Indianapolis emphasized the run against the Vikings and got a large lead, so don't expect Turbin to get this large a workload the next two weeks as long as Gore is healthy.
Turbin played a season-high 35 snaps on offense as he got a bit more playing time behind starter Frank Gore. However, he typically has a limited backup role with the occasional touchdown as a goal-line back.
Turbin had a season-high six carries as he got extra playing time when the game became a blowout. Turbin doesn't get many carries per game, but will score the occasional touchdown as a goal-line back. He scored his fourth touchdown in Monday's win.
