Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart missing practice with hip flexor issue

ESPN's Michael DiRocco is reporting Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley is being "extra cautious" with starting runnng back Toby Gerhart. Gerhart hasn't practiced since Friday and is dealing with tightness in his hip flexor.
Bradley is making sure fans know it's strictly the team's call, adding, "That [Gerhart's not practicing] is more on our part... . It's more for us, but I know that he said he felt better today than he did the other day." Gerhart is currently day-to-day and might be held out of the preseason opener on Friday versus Tampa Bay. If he has to miss time, backup Jordan Todman @JordanTodman would see the majority of first-team snaps.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's only an issue if the injury continues to linger. What's notable is how cautious the Jaguars are being with their newly acquired running back in his first year as a full-time starter. If Gerhart can stay healthy, he should be able to maintain RB2 status with RB1 upside. Gerhart is being drafted in the fifth round as the RB19, according to our ADP chart.

The Jaguars' offensive line is very suspect, and has been worn by the D-Line out so far in training camp. Can't help but wonder if the O-Line will cause Gerhart to have a poor season.
