Jaguars vs. Browns injury news: Toby Gerhart ruled out

New, comments

The "bell-cow" back will miss another week due to a lingering foot injury.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars will once again be without running back Toby Gerhart, who's been dealing with a foot injury he sustained in the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

It's a shame that Gerhart will miss an opportunity to run against a Cleveland Browns run defense that ranks 30th in the league right now, giving up 149.6 yards per game on the ground. With Gerhart out, rookie running back Storm Johnson is expected to make his second start in a row.

If head coach Gus Bradley and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch go with the rotation they did last week against the Tennessee Titans, look for Johnson to get the bulk of the carries, with Denard Robinson getting the second-most reps and Jordan Todman being used sparingly in the run game and mostly as a third down pass option.
