"I think we'll get there during April and May to where we're all seeing the progress we want to see", Ballard said. Even if Luck is able to throw without any significant limitations during Organized Team Activities, expect the Colts to restrict his activity throughout training camp.
"He's a Hall of Fame player in my mind, without a question a first-ballot Hall of Fame player".
It's highly unlikely that, if the Baltimore Ravens did sign Gore, that they would make him their starter given the breakout season that Alex Collins had a year ago and the fact that Gore is very much in the twilight of his career.
As a result, Gore registered his 12th straight season with at least 1,000 yards from scrimmage.
Ballard approached Gore about the possibility of surgery to insert a pin in his thumb, a procedure that would undoubtedly keep him out of the Broncos game. "And everything is going according to plan", said Frank Reich.
The only other players ahead of Gore are Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton and Barry Sanders.
"This guy, as far as I'm concerned, is a living legend". The 34-year-old running back whose career might legitimately never end has said that he's looking to continue playing, but he'll be leaving the Colts. He needs 76 yards to pass Curtis Martin for No. 4. "When I got here, they were a game away from the Super Bowl".
Offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo and defensive line coach Mike Phair already had deals with Indy before Reich took the job. The team is rumored to be interested in drafting Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Frank knows we're at a point where we need to get younger.
Ballard said Gore actually broke his thumb during that Buffalo game and doctors told him they could fix it by inserting a pin. "We'll see how the draft and free agency works out".
