Owner Jim Irsay indicated Monday he hopes the Colts will use a high draft pick on a running back.
It's also a strong indication the Colts will move on from free agent Frank Gore and target a feature back to pair with change-of-pace runner Marlon Mack. "You put (Andrew Luck) on that field, healed up, and you put an Edgerrin James -- maybe that's bigger, faster, stronger -- ... this is going to be a special place to be and a special place to play." James was the No. 4 overall pick in the 1999 draft. The Colts have the No. 3 overall pick this year. Jan 1 - 5:18 PM

Frank Gore rushed 24 times for 100 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Texans.

He added three catches for 11 yards. Gore passed O.J. Simpson for the 16th-most 100-yard rushing games with possibly his final game as a member of the Colts. Gore is headed into free agency falling 39 yards short of what would have been his tenth 1,000-yard rushing season. In 2017, you knew what you were going to get with Gore -- 50-60 yards rushing and the potential for a goal-line touchdown behind one of the worst offensive lines while playing without Andrew Luck all year. Gore rushed 261 times for 961 yards and three touchdowns, adding 29 catches for 245 yards and an additional score. Gore turns 35 in May and has said he'd entertain coming back to the Colts if Luck is healthy. The Colts, however, may (likely) decide to move on.

Contract-year RB Frank Gore said he'd be interested in returning to the Colts if Andrew Luck (shoulder) is healthy.

That's a big "if" at this point, as there are whispers Luck could need another surgery. It's also unclear if the Colts would even want to bring back Gore, who will turn 35 in the offseason. Gore again carried a heavy load this year, logging 237 carries to date and likely to cross the 250 barrier for the ninth time in his career. Gore needs 139 yards Sunday for his tenth 1,000-yard season.

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 68 yards in the Colts' Week 16 loss to the Ravens, adding two catches for 18 yards and a touchdown.

34-year-old Gore was the Colts' best player in a soggy game in Baltimore. His 68 yards rushing were the third most of what's been a workmanlike campaign. Although still effective, Gore has long since lost any semblance of dynamism. He'll be an RB3/FLEX for Week 17 against the Texans.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 07:33:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 31 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos, adding three receptions for 37 additional yards.

Gore missed most of the first half with a mysterious knee ailment, but was back after the break. He couldn't move the chains against the Broncos' stout run defense, and Jacoby Brissett couldn't soften them up with any big plays. Averaging 3.60 yards per carry behind an increasingly injured offensive line, Gore will be more of an RB3 than RB2 for Week 16 against the Ravens.
Thu, Dec 14, 2017 11:40:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 36 times for 130 yards in Week 14 against Buffalo.

It's a huge workload with the Colts playing on Thursday night next week. Gore didn't do much with his touches, averaging just 3.6 YPC with his biggest play a 10-yard run. This is the first time Gore has went over 100 yards all season. With the Colts playing on a short week, Marlon Mack should have an expanded role against the Broncos.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 04:43:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 61 yards in the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Jaguars.

Frank Gore continued to look ageless, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and racking up chunks of yards. He ran with power and showed burst against what has been a tough Jacksonville run defense. Gore will be a touchdown or bust flex play against the Bills in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 04:10:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 62 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Titans.

The Colts insisted on pounding Gore into Tennessee's stout front, and it had mixed results. His best run came on a dart up the middle for a 14-yard score. Gore lost only six touches to rookie Marlon Mack. Gore will remain a low-floor, touchdown-or-bust flex option when the Colts take on the Jaguars next.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 04:10:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 54 yards in the Colts' Week 10 loss to the Steelers, adding a seven-yard reception.

For the second straight week, Gore soundly out-touched and out-gained Marlon Mack. Of course, it scarcely mattered from a fantasy perspective, as Gore averaged 3.17 yards per carry and remained stuck on two touchdowns for the season. He'll be a low-end FLEX play against the Titans when the Colts come off bye in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 05:30:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 51 yards in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Texans, adding three receptions for 26 additional yards.

Five days after not getting traded, Gore tallied his second most carries of the season. He out-touched Marlon Mack 20-9, and out-gained him 77-29. Per Pro Football Focus, Gore out-snapped his rookie teammate 40-27. This, after Mack was on the field for more plays each of the past two weeks. It was a nice effort in a narrow Colts victory, but this should remain a musical chairs that renders Gore little more than a low-upside RB3/FLEX.

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts discussed Frank Gore with the Eagles before Tuesday's trade deadline.

The Eagles ended up thinking bigger and acquiring Jay Ajayi. The Colts seemed to make everyone available — with T.Y. Hilton, Vontae Davis and Donte Moncrief joining Gore — but ended up standing pat. The Colts could eventually cut 34-year-old Gore, but he would be subject to waivers. Every player is after the trade deadline.

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder reports "at least two teams" have expressed interest in trading for Frank Gore.

Gore is 34 and in the final year of his deal with a bottom-barrel team. He doesn't have much left in the tank, and the Colts are probably more than willing to move forward with Marlon Mack atop the depth chart. Gore is coming off his best rushing game of the season, amassing 82 yards against the Bengals on Sunday. He'd likely be very receptive to the idea of joining a contender.

Frank Gore rushed 16 times for 82 yards while catching four balls for 19 yards on four targets Sunday in the Colts’ Week 8 loss to the Bengals.

This was Gore’s best outing of the year by a pretty significant margin as his previous season-best was only 57 rushing yards on 25 carries against the Browns in Week 3. Gore showed burst not usually seen in a 34-year-old running back, particularly in the first half when he averaged over five yards per carry (39 yards on seven rushes). He also played a significant role in the passing game on a day when Jacoby Brissett mostly settled for check-downs and screens. It was good to see Gore showing signs of life, though impressive rookie Marlon Mack is here to stay and should push for a bigger piece of the rushing pie as the Colts fall further and further out of contention. Gore won’t be anything more than an RB3 next week against Houston.

Frank Gore rushed nine times for 34 yards in Week 7 against the Jaguars.

It was another nondescript week from Gore, who's been held under 60 yards in every game. Gore didn't have any targets, and was a non-factor in the second half with Indy abandoning the run. Gore's 3.4 YPC is among the worst in the league. With the Colts falling out of the AFC South, it's only a matter of time before Marlon Mack takes over the backfield.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 04:29:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 49 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

He caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the pass game. The Colts said they wanted to get rookie Marlon Mack more involved on offense after his big Week 5, but it was Gore and fellow vet Robert Turbin getting all the work. Mack carried the ball just two times. Gore has now rushed between 46 and 57 yards in each of the past five games. He's been consistently average.
