Jaguars dealing with injuries after Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) The Jaguars came out of their first two games with a number of injuries, but their wounded players are making progress as of Monday, reports ESPN.com.

Wide receivers Marqise Lee (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle), both of who were injured in Week 2 against Washington, are hoping to practice Wednesday, though Lee seems more likely to do so at this point. Running back Toby Gerhart is also expected to practice Wednesday with a foot injury. 


Toby Gerhart disappears in blowout loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was almost nonexistent in Week 2, in a 41-10 loss in Washington.

With the Jaguars down big, Gerhart got little work in the running game, finishing with 8 yards on seven carries. He added just two receptions for 9 yards as well, in the blowout loss.

Gerhart has rushed for just 50 yards through his first two games, while averaging a paltry 2.0 yards per carry. He will look for better success in Week 3 against the Colts. 


Ankle not an issue for Toby Gerhart


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is active and in uniform, as expected, for Week 2 against the Redskins. He was considered probable for the game after getting through the week in practice with an ankle injury.

Trio of offensive players scratched by Jaguars for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Tight end Clay Harbor (calf), running back Storm Johnson (ankle) and tackle Austin Pasztor (hand) have been ruled out by the Jaguars for the Sunday game in Washington. Cornerback Alan Ball (abdominal) is questionable after sustaining an injury Friday, but he told the team website he expects to play against the Redskins.

Among those injured who are also likely to play are tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), running back Toby Gerhart (ankle), wide receiver Marqise Lee (hamstring) and defensive lineman Abry Jones (abdominal).

Gus Bradley provides updates on injured players


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley updated the status on a few of his team's injured players when talking with reporters Monday. The Jaguars play the Redskins in Week 2.

He said running back Toby Gerhart has an ankle sprain and will be limited early in the practice week. 

Bradley said tight end Marcedes Lewis could be limited Wednesday due to a knee injury, but he should play Sunday. Linebacker Paul Posluszny (knee) should practice Wednesday as well.

Bradley added safety Johnathan Cyprien is going through the concussion protocol, and wide receiver Cecil Shorts -- who was inactive Week 1 due to a hamstring injury -- will run Tuesday. The team will determine Shorts' status later in the week.


Toby Gerhart in slo-mo in Jaguars loss


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart struggled to pick up yardage in part because of his O-line in the team's Week 1 loss at the Eagles. He had 12 yards on seven carries before limping off the field in the first quarter with an ankle, then got back in the game to finish with 42 yards on 18 carries (2.3 yards per carry) with two catches.

Gerhart led the Jags in carries and was actually second in rushing average behind Denard Robinson, who had 8 yards on three carries.

Jacksonville plays at Washington in Week 2 -- the Redskins allowed 103 rush yards to Arian Foster on 27 carries in Week 1.

Toby Gerhart an intriguing Fantasy possibility in Week 1


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Bullish back Toby Gerhart has been wearing an NFL uniform for four years, but he is beginning his rookie season in a manner of speaking on Sunday. He is set to make his debut as a starter with Jacksonville after cooling his heels on the sideline behind future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson since 2010.

Gerhart is among the great unknowns heading into the clash against host Philadelphia. He showed his readiness to start in 2013 by averaging an eye-popping 7.9 yards per carry with Minnesota.

Though he boasts virtually no speed, he should help the Jaguars move the chains against a strong Philadelphia run defense that ranked fourth in the NFL at 3.8 yards allowed per carry last year and is certainly a scoring threat in goal-line situations. Gerhart is rated about 20th by CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard among all running back options in Week 1. He could be a worthy play as a second back. He might just begin a breakout season against the Eagles.


Toby Gerhart looks sharp in second preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart ran the ball hard during Friday's dress rehearsal game against the Lions in Detroit. Gerhart played into the third quarter. He took 10 handoffs for 32 yards, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt. He was not targeted in the passing game. Gerhart has 16 carries for 51 yards through two exhibition games.

Toby Gerhart: My hip felt fine in preseason game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) The Jaguars have reported that potential featured back Toby Gerhart had no problem with his hip in the Thursday night preseason game against Chicago. He managed 19 yards rushing on six carries, though one of his attempts traveled 18 yards.

Fantasy owners shouldn't be nervous about Toby Gerhart


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/15/2014) It was one preseason game, but everyone saw what I saw in Toby Gerhart when I wrote about him back in May. He's strong, he's got great vision, he's got great hands, he'll deliver a handful of 10-plus-yard runs and ... he's probably the slowest starting running back in football. 

Gerhart's weakness is his speed but it doesn't make him a bad Fantasy option. Playing in the pros is all about having athletic talent and the mental capacity to handle what comes with it and what's asked of you. Making it big in Fantasy is having the opportunity to put up numbers. There's a difference -- and through two preseason games there's no reason to believe Gerhart's workload is in any danger of slipping because no one else in J-ville has the talent to match up to Gerhart's total package.

I still like Gerhart a lot as a pick between 30th and 40th overall in every single draft.  


Toby Gerhart makes Jacksonville debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart finally made his Jacksonville debut on Thursday against the Bears.

On the opening play of the game, Gerhart took a handoff for a gain of 6 yards. He then ripped an 18-yard run up the middle on the second play of the second drive. He was limited to two series with the first-team offense and finished with six carries for 19 yards, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt. He also caught the only pass thrown his way for a gain of 8 yards.


Jags want to give Gerhart 5-6 carries on Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said if running back Toby Gerhart is able to play Thursday against the Bears, he'd like the free agent acquisition to get 5-6 carries, reports the Florida Times-Union. Gerhart (hip flexor) returned to practice Tuesday.

"I'd like to see Toby run the ball a little bit," Fisch said. "Something in the range of five or six."

Fisch added he envisions Gerhart as the "lead dog" but three other backs have a chance to get significant carries.

Jordan Todman ran with the starters in Gerhart's absence.


Jaguars label Toby Gerhart as a 'workhorse'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Gerhart has averaged 4.7 yards per carry in his career with 276 regular-season career carries.
