Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart still seeking to maximize potential


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Bullish back Toby Gerhart spent four years sitting behind Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. He spent last year nursing a sprained ankle and losing his starting job with the Jaguars.

He would like to fulfill his potential as a featured back, but Denard Robinson, Bernard Pierce and T.J. Yeldon are also in the competition.

Little has gone right for Gerhart, but he is taking a positive and realistic approach to the 2015 season.

"That's how it is everywhere in the NFL," he told Associated Press. "You're fighting for your livelihood. Every year, there's someone younger coming in to try to take your job. All you can worry about is doing your best and see what happens."

A new offensive scheme could swing the odds in his favor. The Jaguars are switching over from an outside-zone attack to an inside-zone scheme, which suits Gerhart just fine. The 231-pounder felt uncomfortable running outside the tackles last year. It did not fit his bruising style.

"I knew we were going to run some outside zone, but when we showed up in April for our first practice and our offensive vision was to be the best outside-zone team in the league, I was like, 'Dang, that's not what I thought.' It was difficult."

Gerhart finished last season with a career-low 3.2 yards per carry on 101 attempts. It was not the production expected after the team signed him to a three-year, $10 million deal.


Jaguars' Toby Gerhart feels good for first time since last September


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is expected to fill an H-back role after the team selected T.J. Yeldon in the second round, but he's worried less about his role and focusing on the fact that he's back to full health, ESPN.com reports.

"It’s feeling good," Gerhart said of the ankle that bothered him all of last season. "I feel healthy for the first time since last September. Feeling good and excited to go out there and be healthy and fresh this spring and show what I can do and compete."

Gerhart's new role will open him up to be a bigger part of the passing game.

"I’m learning the F [H-back] and running some of that and also taking just as many reps at tailback and competing and just trying to be the best I can be and see what happens," Gerhart said. "A lot of it so far has been a lot of routes and stuff like that, not so much iso downhill, more get me out in the flat, get me in pass pro and get out. It’s exciting to move around and we’ll see what happens."

Gerhart averaged just 3.2 yards on 101 carries last season while scoring two touchdowns. His average of 9.3 yards per reception represented a season high.


Report: Jaguars looking for help at RB this offseason


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) It appears Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart will have new role in 2015. 

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Jaguars are planning to move Gerhart around on offense at H-back in addition to running back. This also means the Jaguars will be in the market for additional help at running back. 

Gerhart was plagued by injuries in 2014, which paved the way for Denard Robinson to assert himself as a potential starting running back down the road. Robinson, however, is injury prone himself, which goes back to his days as a standout quarterback in college at Michigan.

Robinson's 2014 season ended on injured reserve with a mid-foot sprain.

Gerhart's season ended with just 326 yards and a patry 3.2 yards per carry average. Robinson emerged late in the year and ran for 582 yards and held a 4.3 yards per carry average.  


Jaguars coach Gus Bradley: Toby Gerhart 'will have a place with us'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told reporters during Thursday's combine press conference that running back Toby Gerhart will have a place on the team on first and second downs, according to the Florida Times-Union.

"He's done a good job. With a new offensive staff, that's what we're in the process of doing right now – looking at everybody's strengths and how to best utilize those," Bradley said. "Toby has done a nice job for us. I know people may consider him a third down-type back or a short-yardage, situational back but we saw him do enough good things on first and second downs that he'll have a place with us. He is a different style of back and we're putting together an offense that best utilizes his strength."

Gerhart dealt with foot and rib injuries throughout the year, which limited him to 14 games in 2014. He finished with only 101 carries for 326 yards and two touchdowns. He'll compete with Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson. Jordan Todman will be a restricted free agent in March.


Jaguars' Toby Gerhart ready to move on from 2014 season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2015) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is happy to say goodbye to 2014 and happy to see 2015 in the distance. Gerhart, who spent most of the 2014 season dealing with injuries, is hoping to spend this offseason getting healthy and ready for the new seson in September, according to ESPN.

"I’m just glad this year is over [so he can] put 2014 behind me and I’m looking forward to getting healthy in 2015," Gerhart said. "Every week it seemed there was something. It started off with the foot, and that nagged forever. It was a frustrating year, and I’m excited that this one’s behind me and looking forward to the future." 

Gerhart, who played in 14 games, had just 101 carries for 326 yards in 2014 after being touted as the workhorse running back coming into the season by coach Gus Bradley. Gerhart also dealt with foot and rib injuries throughout the season.

"He’s never been hurt like that," Bradley said. "I think we started to see signs of him do some good things. I know he was frustrated over that: 'I wanted to help this team more but I didn’t anticipate I’d be hurt like I was. But yeah, we still think highly of him."


Jags' Jordan Todman scores second TD; Toby Gerhart does little


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Jaguars running back Jordan Todman shared the load with Toby Gerhart and scored his second touchdown of the season in Week 17 against Houston.

Todman came down with a 23-yard touchdown pass on a trick play. Quarterback Blake Bortles threw a screen pass to Cecil Shorts, who then threw a pass to Todman for the score in the third quarter. He carried the ball seven times for 52 yards and caught five of six targets for 46 yards and a score.

Gerhart took four handoffs for 8 yards and was not targets in the passing game.


Jaguars' Hurns (ankle), Gerhart (ankle), Linder (knee) exit Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Jaguars wideout Allen Hurns (ankle), running back Toby Gerhart (ankle) and guard Brandon Linder (knee) each exited with injuries in the first half of Sunday's season finale against Houston. According to the team's official website, both are questionable to return.

Jaguars enter Week 17 relatively healthy


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Jaguars enter the final week of the season relatively healthy. Outside of defensive tackle Roy Miller (knee) who was ruled doubtful for Sunday's game against Houston, Jacksonville listed seven players as probable.

Those include quarterback Blake Bortles (foot), center Luke Bowanko (wrist), defensive end Andre Branch (groin), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee), running back Toby Gerhart (ribs), wide receiver Cecil Shorts III (shoulder) and wide receiver Tommy Streeter (abdomen).


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart still feeling pain in rib


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart said he is still feeling the rib contusion sustained Thursday against Tennessee, per the Florida Times-Union.

The team has yet to issue an update on his condition, but the problem could prevent him from playing in the season finale Sunday at Houston. If his season is indeed over, he will end it with just 318 yards on 97 carries.

Those are not strong numbers considering he entered the year as the team's featured back.


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (rib) will not return vs. Titans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Titans with a rib injury, the team announced.

Gerhart initially suffered the injury late in the third quarter and was deemed questionable to return, but he was able to make it back for much of the fourth quarter before being ruled out at about the two-minute warning. He finishes the Week 16 matchup with 60 yards on 13 touches as well as a one-yard touchdown.


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (rib) cleared to return vs. Titans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart has been cleared to return to Thursday's game against the Titans, the Associated Press reports. He was ruled questionable to return by the team due to a rib contusion but appears to be ready to resume his regular role.

Gerhart reached the end zone on a one-yard score in the third quarter and picked up one carry on the following drive before the injury was announced. He racked up 42 yards on nine carries in addition to the touchdown while also adding a seven-yard reception.


Jaguars backs do little with their shot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Denard Robinson had emerged as the Jaguars' primary option at running back this season, but an injury will keep him out over the final three games. Unfortunately, none of his potential replacements did much to stand out in Week 15 against the Ravens.

Toby Gerhart predictably saw the most work for the Jaguars, but didn't do much with it. He rushed for 54 yards on 13 carries, but of which led the team, but didn't exactly impress. Fortunately for him, neither did Storm Johnson or Jordan Todman, who combined for just 26 yards on nine carries.

Sunday's was a tough matchup for the Jaguars backs, so they should have an easier time next week. However, even against a subpar Titans rushing defense, none of these backs are worth starting outside of the deepest Fantasy leagues for Week 16.


Jaguars' Toby Gerhart fails to do much Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart failed to do much Week 15 against the Ravens.

Gerhart assumed the workhorse role during the game, but didn't have that many opportunities. He carried the ball 13 times for 54 yards. Gerhart was mostly a plodder, with his longest run going to 10 yards. The Jaguars offense never found the end zone during the contest, limiting Gerhart's upside. He played a small role in the passing game, hauling in two passes for 9 yards.

Gerhart will look for more Week 16 against the Titans.


Blake Bortles among Jags cleared to face Baltimore


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/14/2014) Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles will start Sunday's game at Baltimore after being listed as probable with a shoulder injury. Other probables suiting up are running back Toby Gerhart (ankle), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee), safety Josh Evans (finger), wideout Tommy Streeter (abdomen) and linebacker J.T. Thomas III (ankle).

Jaguars list six as probable for Sunday against the Ravens


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles (shoulder) is considered probable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Bortles has yet to miss time since being named the starter in Week 4. 

Others listed as probable include: Chris Clemons , Josh Evans, Toby Gerhart, Tommy Streeter and J.T. Thomas

Andre Branch, Khairi Fortt, and Denard Robinson are out. 


Starting role doesn't change Toby Gerhart's outlook


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is set to return to the starting lineup in Week 15 against the Ravens this Sunday, after Denard Robinson's season-ending foot injury was announced. However, that doesn't mean Fantasy owners should look to start him with the playoffs underway.

Robinson had usurped the role from Gerhart after Gerhart's struggles early in the season, but had failed to make much of an impact of late. In three games since the team's by week, Robinson has just 12 combined Fantasy points, while averaging 2.8 yards per carry. Of course, even at his worst, Robinson has still been better than Gerhart, who is averaging just 2.9 yards per carry for the season overall.

Gerhart just doesn't have the burst Robinson has shown this season, and since Robinson wasn't setting the world on fire lately, it's hard to expect much from Gerhart. With a tough matchup on the way in Week 15, against a Ravens defense that has allowed the fewest Fantasy points to opposing running backs, Gerhart should be viewed as a "Break in case of emergency" option, at best. 


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart likely to start Week 15


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) With Denard Robinson done for the season, coach Gus Bradley said Wednesday Toby Gerhart will likely start for the Jaguars against the Ravens. He also said Storm Johnson will play a bunch. 

Gerhart has 211 yards on 73 carries this year, while Johnson has 64 yards on 20 carries.


QB Blake Bortles among probables for Jaguars in Week 14


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Jaguars have ruled out defensive end Andre Branch (groin) and linebacker Khairi Fortt (hamstring) for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Linebacker LaRoy Reynolds (neck) and wide receiver Tommy Streeter (abdominal strain) were both deemed as questionable, despite practicing Friday.

Meanwhile, quarterback Blake Bortles (right shoulder, left ankle), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee), safety Josh Evans (foot), linebacker Jeremiah George (ankle), running back Toby Gerhart (shoulder) and defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (foot) were ruled out Week 14.


Toby Gerhart goes for 50 yards


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/23/2014) Jaguars backup running back Toby Gerhart ran four times for 31 yards, including a season-long 23-yarder, and caught three of four passes for 19 yards in the loss at Indianapolis. He'll face the Giants in Week 13.

Jaguars' RB Toby Gerhart just hoping to contribute


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is just hoping to contribute, according to the Florida Times-Union.

Gerhart came into the season as a team's feature back, but lost his job due to injury. "When I got the original injury, I tried to push through it, and it got worse and worse," Gerhart said. Despite the current situation, Gerhart doesn't blame the Jaguars for sticking with Denard Robinson. "You’ve got to play the hot hand, and he’s the hot hand." Gerhart added that he would do his best to contribute over the next six games. 


A lot of Jaguars do little in lopsided loss to Cowboys


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The minor contributors outnumbered the major ones Sunday for the Jaguars - it's no wonder they lost badly to Dallas.

The best of the bunch was wideout Allen Robinson, who caught five passes for 60 yards. Tight end Clay Harbor chipped in with three catches for 28 yards while running back Jordan Todman added three receptions for 27 yards and two rushes for six yards. Also contributing were tight end Nic Jacobs (1-14) and wideouts Marqise Lee (1-13), Ace Sanders (1-10) and Allen Hurns (1-9).

Running back Toby Gerhart managed two yards on four carries for Jacksonville, which has embarked on its bye week.


Toby Gerhart solid in supporting role


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/2/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart rushed three times for 19 yards (6.3 ypc) and caught three of four targets for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Playing behind Denard Robinson, Gerhart made a few big plays, including converting 3rd-and-16 with a 20-yard gain on a screen pass.

Gerhart broke a tackle and dragged two defenders for the first down, showing the brute strength that helped earn him a free-agent contract. Gerhart plays the Cowboys in London in Week 10.


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart does little in return from injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart made his return from a foot injury but took a back seat to Denard Robinson in his team's loss to the Dolphins in Week 8.

Robinson rushed for 100 yards for the second straight game, while Gerhart finished with only 10 yards on four carries. He caught his lone target for a gain of 3 yards in a 27-13 defeat. He has 133 rushing yards on the year.

The Jaguars will face the Bengals in Cincinnatti in Week 9.


Denard Robinson still starting for Jaguars


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Despite the return of Toby Gerhart from a foot injury, Denard Robinson is still listed as the Jaguars' starter for Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Robinson is coming off a breakout performance in Week 7, when he rushed for 127 yards on 22 carries. He should see a bit of a smaller role, but we have little reason to think he will cede a majority of the work to Gerhart, who has been largely ineffective this season.

Robinson is by no means a must-start Fantasy option even after last week's success, with the Dolphins providing a pretty tough matchup. Still, he has some appeal as a low-end starting option Sunday, even with Gerhart back.


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart ready to return Week 8


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) As expected, Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was officially ruled active for Sunday's home against the Dolphins in Week 8. It'll be his first game back from a foot injury that caused him to miss  Week 6 and 7. He has 123 rushing yards and a touchdown on 48 attempts. Gerhart will likely share the load with Denard Robinson, who rushed for 127 yards on 22 carries in Week 7.
