JACKSONVILLE – The debut of the Jaguars’ starting running back will wait at least a week.
Gerhart has been out of practice since late last week with a hip flexor.
Bradley said while he hoped to get Gerhart four or five carries in the preseason opener there will be time in the final three preseason games to prepare for the regular-season opener.
“He’ll get more carries as we go,” Bradley said“,” Bradley said Wednesday after the Jaguars worked for about an hour, 45 minutes in the late morning in 87-degree temperatures at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields.
Also on Wednesday, a couple of hips got a little better from Tuesday, but the Jaguars wide receiver group also sustained another injury.

“It was something that was kind of precautionary,” Brown said. “We’ll see how it goes. I’ll go in and get treatment and get ready for tomorrow. It’s very frustrating. Anytime I can’t be out there, it’s very frustrating. There are a lot of unfortunate situations (at receiver).
“All of us are working to get back. We’ll be back as soon as possible.”
Bradley said the coaches will meet Wednesday night to determine playing time against the Buccaneers Friday. The Jaguars worked just one session on Wednesday preparing for Friday, focusing instead on working on themselves.
