Jags RB Denard Robinson played a career-high 36 snaps, which was one less than Gerhart (21) and Jordan Todman (16) combined. He ran for 25 yards and caught three passes for 7 yards, but all of his catches came behind the line of scrimmage, and PFF reports that Robinson actually had 21 yards after the catch.
Gerhart did go to the bench after fumbling on his first carry, but returned during the Jaguars’ second possession and finished with 32 yards rushing on 10 carries and had one catch for 8 yards. Despite the discrepancy in playing time, coach Gus Bradley said Gerhart has not fallen behind Robinson on the depth chart.
"Just trying to utilize everybody’s strengths," Bradley said. "You see the receivers move around, too. We’re trying to utilize their strengths. That’s been kind of our philosophy."
Gerhart did score a rushing TD but outside of that it's been a rough start to the season for owners who continue to stick with him. Robinson is still learning the position, the story said, and adjusting from running the ball as a QB in college to a running back at the pro level. RB is likely the best way for the team to get Robinson on the field and use his skills. Seems like he has a way to go, and it's a situation worth monitoring.
