OMAHA, Neb. — Ken Clark, one of the top all-time rushers at Nebraska who played for the Indianapolis Colts, has died. He was 46.
His cousin, Stephanie Clark, said he died of a heart attack in Minneapolis on Saturday.

His career highlight came in 1988, when he ran for 256 yards and three touchdowns in a win over Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders and Oklahoma State.
Mr. Clark appeared in 34 games with the Colts from 1990-92. AP
