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.
Oct 6 - 5:06 PM

Frank Gore (foot) did not practice Monday.

Coach Chuck Pagano called Gore day-to-day. With the Colts and Texans squaring off Thursday night, both teams were forced to release an injury report today. We tentatively expect Gore to be ready to roll as an RB2 Thursday.
Oct 5 - 6:42 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 53 yards and caught 5-of-7 targets for 34 yards Week 4 against the Jaguars.

Gore had just six yards in the first half and was shut down for most of the game. He managed a 22-yard carry in overtime to salvage his day. Gore fumbled at the goal-line for the second time in three weeks, but the Colts still pulled out the win in overtime. OC Pep Hamilton remained pass-heavy even with Matt Hasselbeck starting. Gore will be a low-end RB2 against the Texans in Week 5.
Oct 4 - 5:33 PM

Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 86 yards and two touchdowns and caught 1-of-2 targets for 8 yards Week 3 against the Titans.

Gore capped off the Colts only real drive of the first half with a one-yard score, and he almost singled handedly led the team down the field for what ended up being the game-winning touchdown. With the offensive line struggling to protect Andrew Luck, the Colts would be smart to let Gore and the running game carry more of the offensive load. Gore will be a solid RB2 next week against the Jaguars.
Sep 27 - 5:21 PM

Frank Gore rushed 15 times for 57 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Jets on Monday night.

He reeled in his lone target in the passing game for four yards. Gore also had a couple of lengthy gains called back by holding penalties. But he committed the biggest gaffe of the night. After failing to punch it in from one yard out on 2nd-and-goal, Gore got the rock on 3rd-and-goal, but dropped the ball on his way into the end zone and Darrelle Revis recovered it at the goal line. It was a horrible night all around for the Colts, who drop to 0-2. Gore has just 88 yards on the ground through two games. He'll look for more room in Week 3 at the Titans.
Sep 21 - 11:42 PM

Frank Gore rushed eight times for just 31 yards in Indy's Week 1 loss to the Bills.

He totaled zero yards on two receptions. Gore missed time with calf cramps, but returned after missing only one series. Gore has to follow up his inauspicious Colts debut with a tough Week 2 matchup in the Jets. Despite today's rocky outing, Gore will remain a mid-range RB2 for his meeting with Gang Green. He's the Colts' lone viable running back, and checkdowns should be coming with T.Y. Hilton (bruised knee) sidelined.

Frank Gore (calf) returned to Sunday's game against the Bills in the fourth quarter.

Gore ended up missing only a series. Josh Robinson has established himself as Gore's primary backup.
Sep 13 - 3:33 PM

Frank Gore was forced from the Colts' Week 1 game against the Bills with a calf injury, and is questionable to return.

He's dealing with cramps. It's quite possible Gore returns, though the Colts are close to entering the fourth quarter down 24-0. Perhaps coach Chuck Pagano will exercise caution. Backup Josh Robinson immediately fumbled in Gore's absence, but it was reversed by a Bills penalty. Gore had just eight carries for 31 yards before going down.
Sep 13 - 3:10 PM

Coach Chuck Pagano said Frank Gore will be on a "pitch count" to open the season in order to keep him fresh for a playoff run.

Gore touched the ball just two times in the preseason and will likely have his practice snaps dialed back over the course of the year. He should still flirt with 20 touches weekly, but the Colts are going to work in their backups Josh Robinson and Tyler Varga here and there, especially if they jump out to big leads. Gore still has RB1 upside, but it's clear he'll be taken care of at age 32.
Sep 9 - 2:14 PM

Frank Gore was held out of Saturday's preseason game.

The Colts refused to risk Gore's health this summer, giving him just two exhibition touches. Boom Herron should get some run in passing situations, but Gore won't be just an early-down back this season. He's an RB1 darkhorse.
Aug 29 - 11:05 PM

Frank Gore ran against eight or more defenders in the box a league-high 76 times last season.

Defenses understandably had zero respect for Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers' pass game. Gore's move to Andrew Luck means he'll be operating against six- and seven-man boxes a majority of the time, and he also projects to be used as a receiver far more. No back in the league (outside of perhaps C.J. Spiller) will benefit more than Gore from a change in scenery.
Jun 18 - 11:13 AM

Coach Chuck Pagano made it clear at the NFL owners' meetings that the Colts envision Frank Gore as a workhorse and every-down back.

He'll take on full-time running back duties ahead of Dan Herron, Vick Ballard, and Zurlon Tipton. Even at 32, the Colts think Gore can be a high-volume bellcow. "Some guys are like that. Carry 1-20, they’re OK. And 20-30, they keep getting better as you wear defenses down. And I think Frank is that type of runner," said Pagano. "He’s a tough, hard-nosed, every-down back. He can play all three downs. He’s a great protector in pass pro. He catches the ball out of the backfield. We all know what he can do as a runner on early downs. He loves football."
Mar 24 - 3:21 PM

Colts signed RB Frank Gore, formerly of the 49ers, to a three-year, $12 million contract.

The deal will include $7.5M guaranteed. It's slightly better than the deal Gore originally agreed to with the Eagles, but his reversal likely had more to do with the offensive stability in Indy. Gore, still a solid north-south runner with elite pass-protection skills at age 31, will move in front of Boom Herron as the starter and should't have a problem getting 200-220 carries.
Mar 10 - 12:24 PM

Sources tell FOX Sports Frank Gore pulled out of his deal with the Eagles in part because he was more intrigued by the chance to play in the Colts' offense.

Gore is expected to get slightly more money when he signs with Indy, but reportedly had concerns about an Eagles offense with question marks at both quarterback and wide receiver. A source also said Gore indicated to a friend he was concerned with what he heard about Chip Kelly's overbearing approach. Gore leaving Philly appears to have also cost the Eagles Andre Johnson, as the ex-Texan is now reportedly on his way to Indy as well.
