Jaguars declared RB Toby Gerhart, WR Marqise Lee, S James Sample, DE Chris Smith, RB Joe Banyard, LB Hayes Pullard and OL Luke Bowanko inactive for Week 9 against the Jets.
Gerhart is a healthy scratch. He's coming off a pitiful game against Buffalo when he rushed six times for just eight yards. He was stuffed at the goal-line four times in a row in that contest. His absence opens up more work for T.J. Yeldon. Josh Evans (groin), Allen Hurns (ankle/thigh), Julius Thomas (abdomen) and Zane Beadles (foot) are all active. Nov 8 - 11:40 AM

Toby Gerhart carried six times for eight yards Week 7 against the Bills.

Gerhart was the short-yardage back against Buffalo, but he may have lost that job after getting stuffed four times in a row at the one-yard line. Tyson Alualu also failed on a short-yardage look in the second half. Jacksonville would be better served giving the quick-footed T.J. Yeldon looks at the goal line. Gerhart is just a low-ceiling handcuff for fantasy purposes.
Oct 25 - 2:07 PM

Toby Gerhart rushed nine times for 26 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards Week 6 against the Texans.

Gerhart was given the start and appeared to play more snaps than Denard Robinson, but he looked as slow and limited as ever against what had been a weak Texans' rush defense. Even if T.J. Yeldon (groin) is forced to miss another game, Gerhart will not be worth using next week against the Bills.
Oct 18 - 4:37 PM

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is expected to start against the Texans with T.J. Yeldon (groin) inactive.

Denard Robinson will get work as well, but he could be limited in his first game back from a knee injury. Gerhart has been a complete bust to this point in Jacksonville, but he is worth RB3 consideration in a solid matchup. Robinson is worth a look in deeper formats as well.
Oct 18 - 11:47 AM

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart worked as the first-team running back in Wednesday's practice.

With T.J. Yeldon (groin) sidelined and Denard Robinson working his way back from a knee injury, Gerhart is currently the healthiest back on the roster. Yeldon missed practice again on Thursday. Gerhart and Robinson will likely share work if Yeldon is forced to sit.
Oct 15 - 1:24 PM

Toby Gerhart (abdomen) is probable for Week 3 against the Patriots.

The Jaguars aren't afraid to force-feed T.J. Yeldon, and he's going to handle the vast majority of the backfield work. Gerhart will mix in here and there.
Sep 25 - 11:15 AM

Toby Gerhart (abdomen) put in a full practice on Thursday.

He was limited at Wednesday's session. Assuming Gerhart returns to action Sunday against New England, he'll serve as the change-of-pace back behind starter T.J. Yeldon.
Sep 24 - 3:59 PM

Toby Gerhart (abdomen) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Gerhart has a chance to return this week after missing the first two games. With Denard Robinson (knee) sidelined, Gerhart and Bernard Pierce should back up T.J. Yeldon.
Sep 23 - 4:51 PM

Jaguars declared RB Toby Gerhart, DE Andre Branch, TE Julius Thomas, DT Sen'Derrick Marks, CB Dwayne Gratz, SS Johnathan Cyprien and OT Luke Joeckel inactive for Week 2 against the Dolphins.

Gerhart has been sidelined with an abdominal strain since late August. He didn't practice at all this week. Jacksonville will go with T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson in the backfield. The Jags abandoned their running game after falling behind to Carolina last week and could do the same on Sunday.
Sep 20 - 2:57 PM

Toby Gerhart (abdomen) is listed as doubtful for Week 2 against Miami.

It's a downgrade from last week, when Gerhart was listed as questionable. Gerhart didn't practice all week, suggesting he's dealing with a setback. T.J. Yeldon is locked into a three-down role even when Gerhart returns.
Sep 18 - 6:40 PM

Panthers declared RB Toby Gerhart (abdomen) inactive for Week 1.

Gerhart got in limited work all week but is apparently not quite ready to go. Gerhart missing means rookie T.J. Yeldon should see all the goal-line work for the Jaguars.
Sep 13 - 11:47 AM

Toby Gerhart (abdomen) is questionable for Week 1 against the Panthers.

He's been limited in practice this week and is looking like a game-time call. Expect him to fill the No. 3 running back post and handle a handful of touches if available.
Sep 11 - 11:27 AM

Updating an earlier item, Toby Gerhart (abdomen) remained limited on Thursday.

The Jags' No. 3 back should be ready to go on Sunday. One of Gerhart's main issues in 2014 was an inability to stay healthy. He's not off to a good start this season.
Sep 10 - 6:13 PM

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (abdomen) missed practice on Thursday.

Gerhart got in a limited session on Wednesday. Late-week downgrades are never a good sign, and it appears likely Gerhart misses Week 1. Denard Robinson will serve as T.J. Yeldon's backup.
Sep 10 - 12:13 PM

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart will not play in the team's third preseason game.

Gerhart is dealing with an abdominal strain. Coach Gus Bradley was quick to point out Gerhart does not have a sports hernia, and he is expected to be ready for Week 1. Gerhart has been effective in short-yardage situations this preseason and could serve that role in the regular season.
