When Jags HC Gus Bradley was asked if it’s time to make Denard Robinson the No. 1 tailback, he said, “Yeah, I think he got the majority of the carries. I don’t know how Toby [Gerhart] came through today, but Denard is playing very well right now.’’
Toby Gerhart was signed as a free agent from Minnesota after spending four years backing up Adrian Peterson. But Gerhart is averaging only 2.5 yards per carry and missed the previous two games with a foot injury.
Robinson finished with over 100 yards for the second-straight game, this past week versus a much tougher ranked rush defense against the run in Miami. He only had 18 yards in the second half but the Jags moved away from the run in this game. The story added that the team is moving Robinson around and still figuring out his strengths. While he's still a work in progress, he seems to be excelling right now. We still caution not to expect 100 yards every game, but if the offense continues to jell and improve Robinson can at least be a flex play.
