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.
Aug 27 - 9:20 AM

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco has been "pleasantly surprised" by Toby Gerhart's performance at OTAs.

It looks like Gerhart is finally healthy after struggling with ankle issues most of last season. He seems to be a good fit for Greg Olson's offense. Olson uses inside zone runs much more than his predecessor Jedd Fisch. After being phased out in 2014, Gerhart will have at least some role in the offense this year.
Jun 7 - 10:51 AM

The Jaguars are expected to keep four running backs.

With Toby Gerhart moving to an H-back role, Jacksonville doesn’t plan to carry a fullback. Gerhart, Bernard Pierce, and Storm Johnson will battle for one or two spots behind T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson. Despite a non-guaranteed $3M salary, the Jaguars appear intent on keeping Gerhart.
May 22 - 7:20 PM

Toby Gerhart is expected to be more of an H-back for the Jaguars this season.

Think of it more as a Mike Tolbert-type role. Gerhart could line up for some short-yardage work and catch a few passes out of the backfield. The Jaguars seem intent on keeping Gerhart on the roster to get some sort of return on investment.
Apr 22 - 3:33 PM

Toby Gerhart will reportedly line up at fullback some in 2015.

A year ago, the Jaguars signed Gerhart to a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the intent of making him their feature back. He completely face-planted, fighting a foot injury but also getting badly outplayed by Denard Robinson. Now the Jags are just looking for ways to get some kind of return on their investment. At best, Gerhart will fill a big back role in a committee and do some blocking.
Mar 31 - 11:39 AM

Coach Gus Bradley indicated at the Combine that the Jaguars will retain Toby Gerhart for 2015.

Gerhart's 2014 was essentially lost before it got started, as he suffered a severe foot injury in Week 1 and ineffectively tried playing through it. He wound up averaging an anemic 3.23 yards per carry. "We saw him do enough good things on first and second downs that he’ll have a place with us," said Bradley. "He is a different style of back and we’re putting tougher an offense that best utilizes his strength."
