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.

Mr. Clark was a two-time All-Big Eight running back for the Cornhuskers, rushing for more than 1,000 yards both his junior and senior seasons and finishing seventh on the school’s career list with 3,037.

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
