Toby Gerhart RB JAC 10 Days

Gerhart (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Gerhart is usually good for a handful of touches running the ball and catching passes out of the backfield each week, but he only has one touchdown on the season.

Gerhart (shoulder) was a full participant in all three practices this week heading into Sunday's game against Houston, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Gerhart lost the starting running back job to Denard Robinson several weeks ago, so he's unlikely to make an impact in this week's game. However, Robinson has slowed down after a productive four-week stretch -- 25 carries for 69 yards the last two weeks. Gerhart's not totally off the radar.

Gerhart rushed for seven yards on five carries in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Gerhart once again served as the backup to Denard Robinson and once again didn't make much of an impact. He's completely off the radar across nearly all formats at this point, and his first year in Jacksonville has been nothing short of disastrous, from a fantasy perspective.

Gerhart carried the ball four times for 31 yards and caught three passes on four targets for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Gerhart again worked as the backup to Denard Robinson and saw limited action. The bulk of his yardage came on a 23-yard scamper, which was easily his longest run of the season. Until he's given a larger share of the carries, Gerhart is not much of a fantasy commodity.

Gerhart carried four times for two yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Gerhart continues to work in a limited role as the backup to Denard Robinson, who had two touchdowns Sunday. He has extremely limited value in most leagues at this point, though he's likely an injury away from returning to a featured role. Over his last four games, Gerhart has 40 yards on 15 carries.

Gerhart rushed three times for 19 yards and had three catches for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati.

With Denard Robinson seeing the majority of the workload (17 carries, 94 yards), Gerhart was again relegated to backup duties. That role figures to continue for the foreseeable future, as Robinson has taken a firm grasp on the starting job. Until he receives a larger share of the carries, Gerhart holds fairly minimal value in most leagues.

Gerhart (foot) rushed four times for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

Gerhart returned to the field after missing a pair of games with a foot/ankle issue. He was an afterthought in the Jacksonville offense, though, playing second fiddle to Denard Robinson (18 carries, 108 yards), who now appears to have a fairly strong grasp on the starting job coming off of his second straight 100-yard effort. Gerhart is averaging just 2.6 yards per carry on the season and does not have a rush of more than 13 yards. As a result, he doesn't hold much value in standard leagues, and that doesn't figure to change unless he's able to regain the starting job.

Gerhart (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Gerhart was able to get back on the practice field this week, and after logging a full day's work Friday, will return to action after a two-game absence. His exact role remains unclear, however, as Denard Robinson -- who logged 127 yards on the ground in Week 7 -- is expected to take the lead back role. Gerhart would seemingly be the likely candidate to see red zone touches, as the 27-year-old back has recorded twice the number of carries inside the 20 (6) as Robinson on the season. He'll take on a Miami defense that ranks No. 10 in the league in rushing yards allowed per game (100.3).

Gerhart (foot) practiced fully Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Gerhart is thus poised to return to action after missing the last two games, though Denard Robinson is expected to remain the team's lead back Sunday. Those digging deep should be aware that coach Gus Bradley indicated that Gerhart will likely see more Week 8 reps than Storm Johnson, but a wait-and-see approach is in order with Gerhart in most cases.

Though Gerhart (foot) is in line to see reps Sunday against the Dolphins, Denard Robinson is slated to start at running back for the Jaguars in the contest.

Gerhart (foot) practiced fully Thursday, and is thus slated to return to action this weekend, evidently in a complementary role. Gerhart's chances of carving out a more significant role beyond Week 8 hinge not only on re-proving his health, but presumably how well Robinson plays going forward, following his breakout effort in Week 7 against the Browns.
