Toby Gerhart RB JAC 1 Month

Gerhart (foot) practiced in limited fashion Wednesday, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Coach Gus Bradley noted after practice Wednesday that Gerhart looked good during the session, which offers hope that the running back could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Dolphins. In such a scenario, however, it's unclear what Gerhart's role might be, given the strong effort turned in at running back by teammate Denard Robinson in Week 7.

Gerhart (foot), who missed the last two games, will be evaluated on Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Gerhart is nursing a foot/ankle injury, which he re-injured in Week 5 against the Steelers. Jacksonville has turned to the trio of Storm Johnson, Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman in his absence, and Robinson rushed for 125 yards in Sunday's victory over Cleveland. That's more yards than Gerhart has in total this season, so it's somewhat unclear what Gerhart's role will be when he's back in the mix.

Gerhart (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, the Jaguars' official site reports.

The report notes that Gerhart hopes that sitting out another contest will give him a better chance to return to action next week against the Dolphins. In his continued absence, the Florida Times-Union relays that coach Gus Bradley indicated that the Jaguars plan to roll with an approach in which Storm Johnson and Denard Robinson divide first-and second-down snaps, while Jordan Todman is on track to handle third-down duties. Of the three, Johnson -- who ran 10 times for 21 yards in Week 6 -- looks like the best bet to lead the team in carries on Sunday.

Gerhart (foot) did not participate in Friday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Gerhart did not practice at all this week, so his chances of playing in Week 7 are not good. Expect the Jaguars to provide an update on Gerhart's status when they release their final injury report of the week following Friday's practice.

Gerhart (foot) did not practice Thursday, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Gerhart, who sat out last week's loss to the Titans, is still recovering from a foot/ankle issue, and coach Gus Bradley said his status for Sunday's matchup with the Browns is up in the air at this point. "I think we're being cautious with him to make sure he's 100 percent before he returns," Bradley said. If Gerhart sits out, expect Storm Johnson and Denard Robinson to handle most of the workload, as the two split first-team reps Thursday.

Gerhart (foot) is slated to sit out Thursday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

We'll revisit Gerhart's status Friday, but O'Halloran speculates that the running back could be held out of Sunday's game against the Browns. If that ends up being the case, the Jags would once again be in line to roll with a backfield comprised of Storm Johnson, Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman in Week 7.

Gerhart (foot) won't practice Wednesday, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.

The report notes that by sitting out Wednesday's session, Gerhart will have given his balky foot a full week of rest. It remains to be seen, however, how much (if at all) the running be will be able to practice on Thursday. On the plus side, per John Oehser of Jaguars.com, Gerhart indicates that he could still play Sunday against the Browns, despite Wednesday's missed practice.

Gerhart, who missed Sunday's loss to the Titans with a foot injury, will be evaluated again on Wednesday, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Gerhart's status for Week 7's game against the Browns thus remains cloudy. In his absence Sunday, Storm Johnson started and carried 10 times for 21 yards, while Denard Robinson ran five times for 22 yards and Jordan Todman carried three times for one yard. At this stage, none of the team's running back options are high-percentage fantasy plays, though we suppose that Gerhart could get a chance to reclaim his starting assignment at some point, once his health is re-established.

Gerhart (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Meanwhile, coach Gus Bradley indicated that the team will determine a starting running back for the contest later Friday, with Storm Johnson, Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman candidates for the assignment. While some form of committee is a plausible scenario, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Johnson (who had four carries for 27 yards last Sunday) get a chance to be a key cog in the team's Week 6 ground game.

Gerhart (foot) is not practicing Friday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

After a full practice Wednesday, Gerhart has now missed two straight days of practice, which is generally a sign that a player is unlikely to play Sunday. There seem to be two possibilities here: the Jags are either resting Gerhart so he can be as close to 100 percent as possible Sunday, or he suffered a setback sometime after Wednesday's practice that is keeping him out. Hopefully the official injury designations (which will be released Friday afternoon) shed some more light on his status.
