Dec 9 Gerhart gained 89 yards on 15 attempts, filling in for Adrian Peterson, who left the team's game on Sunday vs. the Vikings with an injury.
Advice: If Peterson is hurt, Gerhart will remain in the lineup for the foreseeable future.
Dec 9 RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring), who replaced Peterson early in the second quarter on Sunday and gave the Vikings a brief lead in the closing minutes with a 41-yard touchdown burst up the middle, suffered a hamstring injury late in the game. He is day-to-day. With Peterson unlikely to play on Sunday and Gerhart fighting a hamstring injury, the running back duties against the Eagles could fall to No. 3 running back Matt Asiata. Asiata has three career carries for nine yards.
