Colts' Robert Turbin: Primed for bigger role in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts likely will use more of a committee approach in the backfield this season, giving Turbin a heavier workload than last season's 47 carries and 35 targets, Mike Chappell of CBS 4 Indianapolis reports.

Turbin only produced 3.5 yards per carry and 5.1 yards per target last season, but he found the end zone on eight of his 73 touches, including three of his his four carries from inside the 5-yard line and seven of his 14 from inside the 10. Fourth-round rookie Marlon Mack may be the flashier option to alleviate some of 34-year-old Frank Gore's workload, but Turbin's strong work in the red zone and as a pass blocker makes him the better bet to handle a significant snap count in Week 1. Turbin still doesn't offer much upside, as he failed to produce a 20-yard gain last season and has a long gain of just 26 yards on 328 career carries. He'd likely share playing time with Mack, and possibly Josh Ferguson, in the event of a Gore injury.

Colts' Trey Griffey: Reverts to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffey (undisclosed) reverted to the Colts' injured reserve.

Griffey was waived on Monday after suffering an unspecified injury but reverts to the injured reserve list since he'd cleared waivers. Barring an injury settlement, he'll likely stay on IR all season.

Colts' Fred Brown: Signs with Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown signed a contract with the Colts on Friday, ESPN reports.

Brown, an undrafted free agent, had 50 receptions for 785 yards and five touchdowns across three seasons at Mississippi State but was dismissed from the university for violating the school's honor code. He'll likely need to excel on special teams in order to make the team in advance of the regular season.

Colts' Frank Gore: To retain workhorse role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore is expected to remain the Colts' lead tailback this season, CBS 4 Indy's Mike Chappell reports.

Gore, despite being 34 years old, is anticipated to receive around 16-to-18 carries per game, which could see him move into fifth all-time in rushing yards over the course of this season. However, with Robert Turbin coming off an impressive spring, and shifty rookie Marlon Mack also in tow, the Colts have alternatives to spare the veteran Gore on occasion. In 16 games last season, Gore averaged 3.9 yards per carry en route to 1,025 rushing yards and four touchdowns, and also caught 38 passes for 277 yards and four more scores.

Colts' Troymaine Pope: Signs with Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pope signed a contract with Indianapolis on Thursday, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Pope's signing with the Colts came in the wake of running back Christine Michael (undisclosed) being moved to injured reserve. Pope saw action in a combined four games with the Seahawks and Jets last season, totaling 44 yards on 12 attempts. He'll have a chance to earn a role as a depth running back with Indianapolis in 2017.
