With Toby Gerhart’s injury, the Jaguars will look for someone on their roster to give their anemic running game a boost.  Enter rookie Storm Johnson out of Central Florida.  He just so happened to be in the same backfield as number one pick quarterback Blake Bortles in college, but much less heralded coming into the NFL.  The Jags have Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman  listed ahead of Johnson on the depth chart, however the rookie looked like the best of the bunch in week five averaging almost seven yards a carry.  I expect to see Johnson quite a bit more on Sunday and play his way into the starting lineup within the next few weeks.  The Jaguars are not going anywhere this season, and with the winless record the time to play younger guys is quickly approaching.  Look to grab the rookie running back now–even if his upside isn’t very high, any healthy running back this season that consistently gets the rock is worthy of a roster spot.
