The Colts plan to reduce Gore's workload in 2016, ESPN's Mike Wells reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old logged 260 carries in 2015, but averaged an ineffective 3.7 yards per attempt. Previously, Gore hadn't dipped below 4.1 YPC throughout his entire career. A lighter load in 2016 could keep Gore fresh and more productive on a per-clip basis, so the narrative goes, but the real boon to Gore's prospects, and health, this upcoming season will be the Colts' newfound emphasis on their offensive line, while a decrease in Gore's touches may simply be an attempt to get more tailbacks involved in the offense so the team can take stock of their backfield talent if (when) Gore decides to hang up the cleats.

Gore said he is still upset about falling shy of 1,000 rushing yards last season, the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gore finished his first year in Indianapolis with 967 rushing yards, extending the Colts' streak to eight consecutive seasons without a 1,000-yard rusher. Furthermore, the team has played 50 regular-season games since it last had a 100-yard rusher, as Gore didn't top the century mark despite playing all 16 games last season. Though now 33 years old, Gore could find that the yards come a bit easier in 2016, after the Colts used four of their eight draft picks (including a first-rounder) on offensive linemen. The team also brought in veterans Robert Turbin and Jordan Todman to provide depth at running back, but neither seems like a serious threat to Gore's workload. If Gore does reach 1,000 rushing yards, he'll be the oldest running back to do so since John Riggins had 1,239 in 1984 at the age of 35.

Gore will have surgery on a broken finger on his left hand next week, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gore's finger injury contributed toward him losing three fumbles this season, when he finished with 967 rushing yards and seven total touchdowns. Now that Gore has time to have his ailment repaired, the veteran will begin his 11th offseason with finger surgery next week.

Gore rushed for 76 yards on 19 carries, but failed to corral any of his four targets in Sunday's 30-24 victory over the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Gore came up 33 yards short of his ninth 1000-yard rushing campaign in the last 10 years, as the 32-year-old struggled to live up to lofty expectations during his first season with the Colts. His 3.7 yards per carry in 2015 marked a career low, with a long-term injury to starting quarterback Andrew Luck allowing defenses to focus on Gore for much of the season.

Gore rushed for 85 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries in Sunday's win over Miami and tacked on another 10 yards receiving off of two catches.

EDGE Analysis

Gore entered Sunday having not scored a rushing touchdown in five consecutive games, but reversed fortunes quickly on Sunday - scoring on the Colts' second possession and finding the end zone again shortly before halftime. Gore became increasingly involved in the offense once Matt Hasselbeck left with a shoulder injury, 11 of his 17 touches coming after Hasselbeck left late in the second quarter. With the Colts in must-win mode and in position to trot out either a dinged up Hasselbeck or Andrew Luck or mediocre Charlie Whitehurst in Week 17, expect Gore to be leaned on heavily.

Gore rushed 16 times for 44 yards during Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Gore has now gone seven consecutive games without averaging even four yards per carry, and he has just one rushing touchdown in the last nine (he does have a receiving score in that span). On the plus side, next on the schedule is a Week 16 trip to Miami to face a Dolphins defense allowing the third-most rushing yards per game this season.

Gore rushed 16 times for 60 yards and caught one of five targets for minus-1 yard Sunday against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts led 13-9 at halftime and it looked like Gore could be heavily used in the second half as the Colts tried to eat clock, but they were absolutely dominated in the last two quarters, getting outscored 42-3. Gore has now gone four straight games without a rushing touchdown (he did catch one last week), and he hasn't hit the 100-yard mark in any game this season. Up next is a Week 15 home game against the Texans, who he had a season-high 98 yards and a touchdown against in Week 5.

Gore had 13 carries for 45 yards and three catches for 49 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Despite giving way to Daniel Herron on most passing downs, Gore set a season-high mark for receiving yards and even had his first touchdown catch of the year. He also fell shy of 3.5 yards per carry for a fifth consecutive game, but the inefficiency isn't having any impact on his workload. Gore draws a Week 14 matchup with a Jacksonville team that has been surprisingly stingy against the run this season.

Gore (knee) rushed 19 times for 24 yards and caught two of three targets for 13 receiving yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

The Bucs completely bottled up the Colts' rushing attack, as not only did Gore struggle but backup Ahmad Bradshaw rushed four times for six yards. It was the second straight game Gore has failed to reach 35 rushing yards, and he's gone four straight without averaging even 3.3 yards per carry. It won't get any easier next week, as the Colts face off against a Steelers defense allowing the sixth-fewest rushing yards per game this season, while allowing just three rushing touchdowns.

Gore (knee) is active Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Gore was held out of practice Wednesday but returned to full participation Thursday and Friday. The Bucs have boasted an excellent run defense since their Week 6 bye, though Gore may be relied upon with Matt Hasselbeck under center.
