General News (Thu Sep 21): did not practice on Thursday (he was excused).

Week 3: vs Cleveland Browns

All RB vs CLE

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Colts running game continues to be one in which Frank Gore continues to get the majority of the carries but has not been successful as Gore has under 50 yards in each of his first two games. Marlon Mack will continue to have a role in this offense, but at this point it appears that it will be a split with Gore continuing to get 12-14 carries and Mack getting 6-10 per week. The offensive line so far for the Colts has really struggled especially with the injury to Ryan Kelly as Deshaun Bond an undrafted rookie is starting at center for the Colts. Jack Mewhort has not returned back to his self after a knee injury cost him a significant part of last season. The Browns are much improved compared to last season where they ranked as one of the worst rushing defenses in the league. So far this season they have allowed just 85.5 yards per game and held LeVeon Bell to just 3.2 yards per carry in the season opener. While the Browns have not had a significant pass rush and are missing Myles Garrett, Danny Shelton and Trevon Coley have improved as run defenders for this team.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs ARI (14 / 46 / 1 rush, 2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Frank Gore is clearly still entrenched as the Colts starter and goal line back but Mack and Turbin will continue to see work. Gore accelerated past an unblocked defender running the read option and scored a 5 yard touchdown. Gore looked to be running angry after halftime, refusing to go down on first contact. Gore found a crease inside and burst for 13 yards.

2017 Week 1 vs LAR (10 / 42 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)

Frank Gore saw more snaps and the same number of touches as Marlon Mack and played well. Gore picked up 42 yards on his 10 carries compared to 24 for Mack. The game script makes it hard to predict usage going forward because the Colts trailed by a large margin the majority of the game. Gore followed a nice block from Anthony Costanzo and picked up 16 yards running off tackle. Gore caught a screen pass and fought through tacklers for a gain of 10.

Our View: Gore does not seem to be able to get yards, but at least had a touchdown last week. The whole offense is a wreck, so Gore's value is very low. He won't be someone you can rely on for anytime soon.
