Gore ran 21 times for 82 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-22 win over the Chargers. He caught one of three targets for just one yard.

EDGE Analysis

Gore was easily the Colts' workhorse back, as Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson combined for just 11 yards on five carries. On a somewhat negative note, Turbin vultured a touchdown in the third quarter, and Ferguson was more active in the passing game, catching three of four targets for 29 yards. In any case, Gore's workload is encouraging, and he'll look to score again next week at Jacksonville.

Gore rushed for 44 yards on 13 carries in Sunday's loss to Denver. He added 19 yards and a touchdown off of three catches.

EDGE Analysis

Gore showed that he still has some spring in his step on Sunday, shuffling along the sideline before diving into the end zone for his first touchdown of the season. He also surpassed Franco Harris for 13th on the all-time rushing list during the game. Gore doesn't face much competition for carries, but the Colts' offense being based around Andrew Luck's right arm makes carries hard to come by. He hasn't topped 20 carries since Week 9 of last season. Getting more involved in the passing game is a way for Gore to find a niche. He's caught at least three passes in both of his first two games of 2016, after reaching the total just five times in 2015.

Gore had 14 carries for 59 yards and caught 4-of-6 targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 39-35 loss to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

While Gore didn't make any big plays, he was easily the most active Colts' running back, as Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson combined for just six touches. Indianapolis might grind things out a bit more next week at Denver, so Gore should see plenty of work, at least in theory.

Gore won't suit up for Saturday's preseason game at Buffalo, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Saturday's absence is merely a veteran day off for Gore, who may not take the field once in the preseason. Aged 33, a better use of his remaining reps as a professional reside in the regular season.

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 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.
