Ageless Gore faces former team when Dolphins play Colts
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The subject was playing through pain, and Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore drew on his extensive experience to share his thoughts with teammate Ryan Tannehill.
Bye comes at good time for hobbled Dolphins
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Frank Gore walked slowly through the Miami Dolphins locker room Monday, a slight hunch in his posture and a slight limp in his gait, which made him look like the 35-year-old running back he is.
With Dolphins’ Tannehill still out, Lions brace for Gore
MIAMI (AP) — It was New Year's Day 2006 when Frank Gore first became a 100-yard rusher. And he still is one, which could spell trouble Sunday for the Detroit Lions.
The ageless 35-year-old Gore had his most productive day of the season last week when he ran for 101 yards to help the Miami Dolphins beat the Chicago Bears in overtime. Now the Lions must tackle the challenge of facing the NFL's leading active rusher.
Gore, Lynch still going strong in their 30s
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The shelf life for running backs in the modern NFL is short. Get drafted, start playing and hope to get a second contract. By the time most backs reach their 30s, they're typically out of the league living in retirement.
Frank Gore and Marshawn Lynch are defying those odds, still producing at the respective ages of 35 and 32. The two will share a field on Sunday when Lynch's Oakland Raiders (0-2) visit Gore and the Miami Dolphins (2-0).

At 35, Dolphins’ Frank Gore is competing for starting job
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The NFL's active career rushing leader may still be a starter at age 35.
Frank Gore is listed as sharing the No. 1 running back spot with incumbent Kenyan Drake on the first depth chart of training camp for the Miami Dolphins.
Gore signed with his hometown team in March and was widely expected to fill the role of veteran backup. He's awfully experienced for a feature back, with 13 seasons and 196 games of mileage.
New cast of backs could give Colts show-stopping combination
WESTFIELD, Ind. (AP) — Marlon Mack spent his rookie season serving as the understudy to one of pro football's greatest rushers.
This year, he's playing the lead in Indianapolis.
The 22-year-old running back got his big break when the Colts let 35-year-old Frank Gore walk away in free agency, handed Mack the starting job and offered him the chance to become a star on football's biggest stage. It's up to Mack to prove he can live up to the billing.
RB Drake hoping to make up for slow start with Dolphins
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Third-year pro Kenyan Drake has been with the Miami Dolphins longer than any other running back on their roster, which gives him seniority of sorts — except that new backup Frank Gore is 35 years old.
Even so, Drake considers his maturity an asset for a change entering his first full season as the starter.
Sending two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul to Tampa Bay for two draft picks gives the New York Giants much-needed salary cap space for 2019 and allows the Buccaneers to continue rebuilding a line that had the fewest sacks in the NFL last season.
With the unexpected trade announced Thursday, the Giants take another step in their rebuilding under new general manager Dave Gettleman and the Bucs upgraded their defense in a bid to end a decade-long playoff drought.
AP source: RB Frank Gore agrees to terms with Dolphins
MIAMI (AP) — Rather than retire, Frank Gore is joining his hometown team.
The NFL's active rushing leader agreed to terms with the Miami Dolphins, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday. The person confirmed the agreement to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal won't be final until Gore passes a physical.

Indianapolis continues to struggle with spate of close calls
