Gore is expected to remain the Colts' lead tailback this season, CBS 4 Indy's Mike Chappell reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gore, despite being 34 years old, is anticipated to receive around 16-to-18 carries per game, which could see him move into fifth all-time in rushing yards over the course of this season. However, with Robert Turbin coming off an impressive spring, and shifty rookie Marlon Mack also in tow, the Colts have alternatives to spare the veteran Gore on occasion. In 16 games last season, Gore averaged 3.9 yards per carry en route to 1,025 rushing yards and four touchdowns, and also caught 38 passes for 277 yards and four more scores.

Gore did not report to practice Tuesday for personal reasons, Mike Chappell of Indysportscentral.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gore was granted permission to return to Miami to attend to family matters. Coach Chuck Pagano noted that he is not at all worried about Gore, claiming that the 34-year-old has been on a strict workout regimen. The expectation is that Gore will be back in Indianapolis by the end of the week, but given the uncertainty regarding the issue it's more of a wait and see at this point. In the meantime, Robert Turbin is likely to get to bulk of Gore's reps during the short absence.

The Colts plan to select Gore's eventual successor during the upcoming draft, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Depending on how early in the draft Indianapolis addresses its backfield, Gore could be looking at immediate competition for carries. A first or second-round selection would be expected to contribute immediately, potentially even posing a threat to Gore's grasp on the lead job. On the other hand, a middle-round draft pick might be viewed as more of a developmental project, with eyes on grooming him for 2018 and beyond. Set to turn 34 just two weeks after the draft, Gore is entering the final season of his three-year contract, coming off back-to-back campaigns in which he fell shy of four yards per carry. He was still a useful part of the Indianapolis offense last season, contributing 1,302 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns while also providing a steady presence in pass protection. The Colts don't have much talent behind him, with Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson rounding out the depth chart.

Gore rushed 16 times for 62 yards, and caught both of his targets for 14 more in Sunday's 24-20 win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Gore's 3.9 yards per carry in this one matched his season average. While this was just the second time the 33-year-old veteran failed to reach 4.0 yards per attempt, he still managed to crack 1,000 yards for the ninth time in 12 NFL seasons while playing in a three-down role. The Colts will likely add some running back depth this offseason, as they're unlikely to hand the aging Gore such a large workload again. Still, he should be back with the team in 2017 after playing in all 16 games while posting 1,025 yards and four touchdowns on the ground along with four receiving scores.

Gore carried 13 times for 73 yards in Saturday's 33-25 loss to the Raiders. He also caught one of two targets for 12 yards and lost a fumble.

EDGE Analysis

Gore ran well to the tune of 5.6 yards per carry, but the Colts faced a constant deficit that reached as high as 26 points and leaned more heavily on the passing game, limiting his rushing attempts. He also coughed up a fumble in his own territory on the first drive of the second half, but it was his first all season and should not be viewed as a problem moving forward. Gore will help his team try to avoid a losing season in next week's finale against the Jaguars.

Gore rushed 26 times for 101 yards, and caught all four of his targets for 14 more in Sunday's 34-6 win over the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Gore exceeded 20 carries for just the third time this season as the Colts led throughout. The veteran running back ceded goal-line work to Robert Turbin, who found the end zone from one yard out late in the first quarter and added a six-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Still, Gore's three-down role between the 20's give him a high floor.

Gore accumulated 41 yards on ten carries, while also hauling in two receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

The touchdown came early in the third quarter on an 18 yard swing pass from Andrew Luck. The Colts had trouble getting anything going against the Texans, and were forced to play from behind most of the game. Thus, Gore only manged to ten carries, but held a respectable average of 4.1 per. He and the Colts will look to improve offensively next week against the Vikings.

Gore rushed 20 times for 79 yards in Monday night's win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Gore's output Monday saw him pass Tony Dorsett and move into eighth on the NFL's all-time rushing list. While that accomplishment evidences Gore's longevity, his 79 yards Monday were the most he's gained since his season-high 106 yards in Week 6. That performance came against the Texans, who will travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts in a crucial AFC South showdown this Sunday.

Gore totaled just 28 yards on 15 carries and secured just one target for three yards in Thursday's 28-7 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Facing some especially crowded fronts with Andrew Luck (concussion) unavailable, Gore was stuffed for his lowest rushing yardage and YPC totals of the season. The Colts also opted for pass plays on two separate occasions where they faced a fourth down near the goal line, eliminating any chances of a touchdown that could have provided his night with at least a modest boost fantasy-wise. He'll face another tough run defense in the Jets in Week 13, but could have the luxury of Luck alongside him in the backfield in that contest.

Gore rushed 18 times for 50 yards and hauled in all four of his targets for 71 more Sunday against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Gore had a 1-yard touchdown vultured by Robert Turbin, who got two carries for four yards. The backup's increased role by the goal line is a major red flag for the veteran, whose value has stemmed from having a near monopoly on touches in the Colts backfield. Gore set a new season high with 121 total yards here, so don't panic yet.
