The Indianapolis Colts have been pretty effective running the ball so far this year, as they are averaging 101.8 yards rushing per game and 4.2 yards per carry so far this year. 33-year old RB Frank Gore has been solid despite getting older, as he has played in 6 games (all starts) for the Colts so far this year in which he has carried the ball 100 times for 434 yards (4.3 ypc) with 2 TD runs. Gore has also caught 15 passes for 72 yards (4.8 ypc) with 1 TD grab so far this year. Last weekend, Gore had his best game of the season, carrying the ball 22 times for 106 yards (4.8 ypc) and he also caught 1 pass for 2 yards in the Colts 26-23 O.T. loss to the Texans. 26-year old RB Robert Turbin is Gore’s top backup. He has played in 5 games (0 starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has carried the ball 12 times for 27 yards (2.3 ypc) with 1 TD run. He has also caught 8 passes for 40 yards (5.0 avg) so far this year. 23-year old undrafted rookie RB Josh Ferguson was the star of training camp, but he hasn’t run the ball too well in limited chances. He has played in 6 games (0 starts) for the Colts so far this year and he has carried the ball 8 times for 8 yards (1.0 ypc). He also has caught 19 passes for 127 yards (6.7 avg) so far this year. 27-year old QB Andrew Luck has pitched in with 132 yards rushing on 22 carries (6.0 ypc) with 1 TD run so far this year. The Colts would probably like it if Luck ran the ball less, but a lot of the time he is taking off because his pass protection was breaking down.
