Frank Gore (knee, quad) returned to a full practice Thursday.
Gore was not able to practice Wednesday, but this puts him on track to play. Gore did not look good struggling through his injuries last week, and he could be limited in a tough matchup against the Bucs. With Ahmad Bradshaw taking on a bigger workload, Gore is more of a back-end RB2 this week. Nov 26 - 12:47 PM

Frank Gore (knee, quad) isn't practicing Wednesday.

Gore missed time on Sunday after an early knee/quad issue and was spotted with a noticeable limp late in the game on the sideline. The Colts are likely just giving the 32-year-old the practice off and will probably limit his reps the remainder of the week. Gore should be fine for Week 12 against the Bucs.
Nov 25 - 11:41 AM

Frank Gore (knee, quad) told reporters following Sunday's win over the Falcons that he will be "fine."

Gore's injury was reported as being to his quad, but he told reporters he was dealing with a knee ailment. The injury clearly bothered Gore toward the end of Sunday's game, as he was seen limping badly on the sideline while Ahmad Bradshaw closed out the contest as the Colts' feature back. Gore does seem likely to play in Week 12 against the Bucs, but he's worth monitoring.
Nov 22 - 9:28 PM

Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 34 yards and secured 5-of-5 targets for 46 yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Falcons.

He also lost a fumble. The Colts' offensive line gave Gore no running room, but he compensated from a PPR standpoint by leading the team in receiving. (You didn't read that wrong.) Concerningly from a going-forward perspective, however, Gore was spotted limping badly late in the game with his helmet off on the sideline, as Ahmad Bradshaw closed things out. Keep a very close eye on the situation; Bradshaw should be owned in all fantasy leagues. The Colts will face the Buccaneers in Week 12.
Nov 22 - 5:38 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano intimated the team is no longer limiting Frank Gore's carries.

"If he’s rolling like that," Pagano said, "and we’re staying balanced and he feels good, we’re going to do what we have to do to win the ball game." There was talk early in the year of putting the 32-year-old running back on a pitch count, but Gore saw 28 carries against the Broncos before the bye and has 54 total touches in his last two games. Gore had over 20 touches in each of Matt Hasselbeck's two starts earlier this season, and Indianapolis should feed him again with Andrew Luck (kidney) out. Even in a middling matchup, Gore should produce low-end RB1 numbers this week.
Nov 19 - 9:51 AM

Frank Gore rushed 28 times for 83 yards and a touchdown Week 9 against the Broncos.

He added 19 yards through the air. Gore was stellar in the first half, bursting through small creases for chunk gains and scoring on a seven-yard run in the first quarter. The veteran bogged down in the second half, but he had a couple nice runs on the Colts’ clock-killing final drive. Gore has at least 75 total yards in every game since Week 2, and the Indy offense has yet to find its rhythm. Gore will be a solid RB2 against Atlanta after the bye, and he could develop into a low-end RB1 if the offense turns it around in the second half of the season.
Nov 8 - 7:33 PM

The Colts' official website expects Frank Gore to get more carries under new-OC Rob Chudzinski.

Chud coached Gore all the way back in 2001 at the U, and coach Chuck Pagano said the new OC "believes in running the football" at his Wednesday press conference. Chud can "believe" all he likes, but Gore has just two fourth-quarter carries the past three games because the Colts continue to find themselves in big second-half deficits. Until that changes, Gore's workload will vary week to week. Gore is a low-end RB2 against Denver's tough run defense this week.
Nov 7 - 11:39 AM

Frank Gore rushed 22 times for 70 yards and caught all three of his targets for 22 yards in the Colts' Week 8 loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

The 22 carries tied a season-high while the 25 touches set a new benchmark for Gore. The veteran did much of his damage in the first half before Andrew Luck took over in the fourth quarter with Ahmad Bradshaw handling pass-game work in the Colts' backfield. At the halfway point of the season, Gore is on pace to rush 240 times for 1,032 yards (4.3 YPC) and six touchdowns. The touchdown total is a bit of a disappointment, but if the offense can find its way over the final eight games, that number could potentially come close to doubling. Gore remains a strong RB2 but gets a bump down next week against the Broncos' elite defense.
Nov 3 - 12:45 AM's Kevin Bowen said the team will use a "heavy dose" of Frank Gore against the Panthers.

Gore is averaging almost five yards a carry over the last three games, but he had just nine carries last week as the Colts attempted to fight back from a 27-point deficit. Feeding Gore is a good idea, but the defense has to keep the score respectable. If they can stay in the contest, Gore is a good bet for 15 carries this week and is a solid RB2.
Oct 31 - 1:18 PM

Frank Gore rushed nine times for 43 yards in the Colts' Week 7 loss to the Saints, adding five receptions for 32 additional yards.

With the Colts playing from behind all afternoon, the run wasn't a priority against a Saints defense that's best beaten through the air. Either way, Gore has now cleared 75 yards from scrimmage in five straight games, and is averaging 4.55 yards per carry. Even in a tough matchup against the Panthers, he'll be an RB2 for Week 8.
Oct 25 - 5:58 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Frank Gore is still on a pitch count.

"We had a number that we targeted at training camp," Pagano said. "We said by the end of the year, this is the number that we would like to get…I think we got to stay close to that (number)." Gore is averaging 16.7 touches a game this season, which is almost exactly what he averaged last year in San Francisco. He has 15 touches or more in each of the last five games, and he should be a good bet to exceed that number most weeks even with Ahmad Bradshaw in the fold. Even on a "pitch count," Gore is getting enough work to remain a solid RB2.
Oct 24 - 9:14 AM

Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 78 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

Gore was effective, but fell out of the gameplan in the second half. He only lost four carries to Ahmad Bradshaw and stayed on the field in most pass situations. Gore will remain an RB2 against the Saints in Week 7.
Oct 19 - 12:40 AM's Kevin Bowen expects RB Frank Gore to remain the "definite lead back" despite the acquisition of Ahmad Bradshaw this week.

Gore should keep the early-down work, but Bradshaw was very good in the passing game last season and could steal some of those snaps. If he does, Gore could turn into a more game-flow dependent option. Bradshaw joining the team does not kill Gore's value by any means, but it does raise some concerns.
Oct 17 - 1:12 PM

Frank Gore rushed 22 times for 98 yards and a touchdown in Indy's Week 5 win over the Texans.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. After Week 3, it was the second best Gore has looked all season. Gore was slippery though the hole, and continued to display quick feet. He could have had a second touchdown, but got wrapped up on a goal-line carry. Either way, Gore has put to rest any concerns about his slow Weeks 1 and 2. He's averaging 4.3 yards per carry, and has three scores over his past three games. He'll be a top-15 option against the Patriots in Week 6.
Oct 9 - 12:12 AM

Frank Gore (foot) returned to Colts practice Tuesday, getting in a full session.

Monday was just a maintenance day for the Colts' veteran back. The RB20 through the season's first four weeks, Gore's play has picked up in his past two games after a slow start. Gore is on the RB1 borderline for Week 5.
