Toby Gerhart RB JAC 10 Days

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 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.

Gerhart (foot) did not practice Thursday, John Oesher of reports.

Gerhart practiced fully Wednesday, so at this stage it's unclear if his absence Thursday was maintenance-related or indicative of a setback with the ankle-foot issue that he has been dealing with this season. In any case, the report notes that Gerhart will be monitored as the week continues, but if he is limited or unavailable Sunday against the Titans, Storm Johnson could be a candidate to see added action in Week 6.

Gerhart (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday and is on track to play Sunday versus Tennessee.

Gerhart re-aggravated a foot/ankle injury during the first offensive series last week against the Steelers and was limited to only four carries and 10 total snaps. Barring a setback, he'll be the starter Sunday, though both Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson are expected to see a fair amount of snaps as well.

Gerhart re-irritated a foot/ankle injury early in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. "I was excited about this game," Gerhart said. "Finally, I had no lingering effects, then the second carry it gets irritated. I'll get treatment and be back and ready to go Sunday."

Gerhart has been battling a nagging foot/ankle issue since Week 2, and the re-irritation is the primary reason he saw only four carries and 10 snaps. Gerhart sounded optimistic that he'll be ready to go Sunday against Tennessee, though he may be limited during practice this week.

Gerhart rushed for just nine yards on four carries in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Gerhart's first season with the Jaguars has been a disaster thus far, as he's rushed for just 114 total yards through five games. Though coach Gus Bradley refuted after last week's loss that Gerhart had been "demoted," the fact that the bruising back only received four carries could be an indication that the team is looking elsewhere for production. Rookie Storm Johnson rushed for 27 yards on four carries, while Denard Robinson picked up six yards on three attempts. Gerhart was most effective in the passing game Sunday, notching one catch for 20 yards.

Speaking after Sunday's game, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said that Gerhart (foot) has not been demoted, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports. "No, no, no, no," Bradley said when asked about a possible demotion. "Just trying and utilizing everybody's strengths."

While Gerhart will likely hold on to the starting job, second-string running back Denard Robinson could take on an increased role. The former college quarterback had nine carries for 25 yards and three receptions for seven yards in Sunday's game. Gerhart had 10 carries for 32 yards and a touchdown, adding one reception for eight yards, and also a lost fumble. Third-string back Jordan Todman recorded one carry for four yards and two receptions for 20 yards.

Gerhart (foot) had 10 rushes for 32 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 33-14 loss at San Diego. He also caught a pass for eight yards, and lost a fumble at one point.

Gerhart's fumble came on Jacksonville's first possession, and he split carries with Denard Robinson (nine carries for 25 yards) the rest of the way. It's been a tough ride for Gerhart thus far, and if the speedy Robinson is going to be more in the mix, Gerhart's value takes even more of a hit.

Gerhart (foot) is active for Sunday's game at San Diego.

With a friendly matchup on tap -- the Chargers have allowed 4.0 YPC and an NFL-high 28 receptions to running backs -- Gerhart should be able to brush aside his ankle sprain and begin to turn around his 2.4 YPC on the season.
