  • Colts' Frank Gore: Avoids injury designation
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gore (hand) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Thursday's game against the Broncos. Gore was held out of Tuesday's practice with the hand issue, but it was always believed his day off was for maintenance purposes more than anything else after he logged a season-high 36 carries for 130 yards in a cold, snowy loss to the Bills on Sunday. The running back's return to full practice Wednesday clears up any concern about his status on the short week, though it wouldn't be surprising if head coach Chuck Pagano sprinkled youngster Marlon Mack into the backfield mix more liberally Thursday to avoid overworking Gore.

  • Colts' Frank Gore: Doesn't practice Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gore was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's injury report with rest and hand designations. On the heels of his most productive outing of the season -- 140 yards from scrimmage in the snow Sunday at Buffalo -- Gore is getting some time off on a short week to receive a bit of rest. That said, his hand is also bothering him at the moment, so his status will be worth watching in advance of Thursday's game against the Broncos.

  • Colts' Frank Gore: Totals 140 scrimmage yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gore carried 36 times for 130 yards and caught one pass for an additional 10 yards during Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Bills. In the midst of a blizzard, Gore easily surpassed his season highs in touches and scrimmage yards as the offense leaned on his legs. He recorded a long gain of just 10 yards but was fed the ball incessantly and churned out production through sheer volume. His workload is likely to decrease Thursday against a tough Broncos run defense, but the opportunity for production is still there to some extent due to his featured role. The Colts haven't shown much interesting in getting Marlon Mack more touches.

  • Gore rushed 13 times for 61 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Jaguars. Gore came in seventh on the NFL's all-time career rushing list, but passed Jerome Bettis (13,662) and LaDainian Tomlinson (13,684) over the course of this one to move up to fifth. The 34-year-old running back got seven more carries than Marlon Mack, but rushed for only 15 more yards than his younger counterpart. With double-digit carries in all but one game this season, Gore still provides a decent floor due to volume despite playing in one of the league's least effective offenses.

  • Gore rushed 17 times for 62 yards and a touchdown while turning five targets into two catches for 17 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Titans. Gore made Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota pay for his second interception late in the first half by bursting up the middle for a 14-yard touchdown on 3rd-and-1 during the ensuing possession. The veteran running back was held to fewer than 4.0 yards per carry for the eighth time in 11 games while getting exactly 17 rushing attempts for the third consecutive week. Rookie teammate Marlon Mack's case for taking more work from Gore took a serious hit in this one, as Mack's inability to corral a toss led to a fumble inside his own five-yard line with Indianapolis leading 16-6, a miscue that jump-started Tennessee's comeback.
