Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart returns to practice

After missing more than a week of practice due to injury, the Jaguars "bell cow" running back was back on Tuesday in full pads.

The Jaguars haven't had a lot of injuries this training camp, but the players who have gotten hurt are a significant part of the roster.

But according to John Oehser of, running back Toby Gerhart is recovered enough from a hip flexor injury he sustained to return to practice.

It was only a matter of time before Gerhart was back out on the practice fields. He said on Sunday that rehab was going well and that he'd "hopefully" be able to play.

"I don’t know what the whole process is to [be able] return to the field," Gerhart said. "But each and every day, the workouts we’ve done, I’ve felt good and it’s felt better."

ESPN's Michael DiRocco reported that Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said he'd like to see Gerhart get some time with the starters during Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

"I'd like to see Toby run the ball a little bit," said Fisch, who said five or six carries is a good range.
