JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - When the Jacksonville Jaguars introduced starter Toby Gerhart before last weeks game, Gerhart and his fellow running backs ran onto the field together.They called it a sign of unity.It also served as a strong visual depicting what the Jaguars backfield has become.Its running back by committee in Jacksonville, with Gerhart, Denard Robinson, Jordan Todman and rookie Storm Johnson all sharing carries.The Jaguars (0-5) rank 31st in the league in rushing, averaging 67 yards a game, so the decision to get more guys involved was an obvious one.Johnson could be the wild card in the rotation. A seventh-round draft pick from UCF, Johnson was inactive the first three weeks because of ankle injury, and although he was active Week 4 at San Diego, he didnt play. He made his NFL debut Sunday against Pittsburgh, running four times for a team-high 27 yards.It wasnt a dazzling performance, but Johnsons 20-yard run in the third quarter matched the teams longest of the season (quarterback Blake Bortles) and was the longest for any Jaguars running back.Its not surprising to me, coach Gus Bradley said. I mentioned two weeks ago he had a good practice. Last week he had a good week, and its that trust and hes building trust. For him to go in there and perform and really capture his opportunity was pretty cool to see. ... The runs he had were very impressive.Johnson re-injured his ankle late in the game, but should be fine for Sundays game at Tennessee (1-4).Still in rebuilding mode, the Jaguars might start Johnson at some point. Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell have gone with several youngsters this season, especially on offence.Bortles, centre Luke Bowanko, right guard Brandon Linder, tight end Nic Jacobs and receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns all started in the 17-9 loss to the Steelers. Rookie linebacker Telvin Smith also got the nod, giving the team seven rookies in the starting lineup.By comparison, fellow AFC South teams Houston, Indianapolis and Tennessee started one each.Jacksonville also has five second-year players in its starting lineup, making the Jaguars one of the leagues youngest and least experienced teams.Caldwell and Bradley believe that if the competition is close between two players, its usually best to go with the younger guy, especially if they think hes got more upside.Well, its a challenge that weve said before that we accept, Bradley said. Somewhere down the line these guys cant be rookies anymore, I believe. I think somewhere theyve played enough games where they say, All right, lets go. I dont want to talk about that anymore. We understand that.Gerhart and the other running backs understand the situation.Although Jacksonville gave Gerhart a three-year, $10 million contract in free agency to be the No. 1 back, the former Minnesota Vikings backup knew he would be sharing the load this season.Injuries have made it even more necessary.Gerhart sprained his right ankle in the season opener against Philadelphia when he was horse-collar tackled from behind. He has been hobbled since. And it seemingly got worse Sunday when he sprained his right foot. He returned to the game, but finished with a season-low four carries for 9 yards, and played just 10 snaps.I know that he felt really good going into the game and then early he had an issue, Bradley said.Regardless of what happens to the starting spot, the running backs insist it wont matter because theyre so close. That was evident when they took the field together Sunday.Were just a tight group and we just said, Why not? Gerhart said.Todman said it carried over from last year, when former Jaguars standout Maurice Jones-Drew led the group and got everyone hanging out together. They even nicknamed themselves the wolf pack.They didnt get introduced as a group in 2013, but decided to do it Sunday a€” fitting given the state of the position.It was a group decision, Todman said. Why not? Lets do it. It was good to have everybody out there active and able to play.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Adam Lallana Jersey t Shirt .

Slovenia joined Croatia in the last eight and its victory allowed Italy to advance as well, despite its 76-68 loss to Croatia. The host team nearly blew a huge lead but held on to send the home fans into a frenzy in Stozice Arena. Spain, the defending two-time champion, cruised past Finland 82-56. Spain, with two wins and two losses, plays Italy (2-2) in its final second-round game. Greece and Finland also still have a chance of making it to the last eight. Greece (1-3) plays Croatia (3-1), and Finland (1-3) goes against Slovenia (3-1). From the other group, France, Lithuania and Serbia have already advanced. Dragic scored his teams first 11 points, before his younger brother Dragan scored the next four to set the tone for the game. Goran Dragics impact was huge, at both ends of the court. After making one free throw, the NBA player grabbed an offensive rebound and dished out an assist for Nebojsa Joskimovics 3-pointer that put Slovenia up by 20 early in the third quarter. The lead quickly grew to 26, and Greece suffered even worse when forward Kosta Papanikolaou limped off with an ankle injury midway through the quarter. "Its a very bad ankle sprain," Greece coach Andrea Trinchieri said. "We came back with desire and passion in the second half but we missed the chance to close within three and that was that." While Goran Dragic had a rest in the fourth, Slovenias lead melted to six by the time he returned. He stole the ball and put in a layup -- his only points in the fourth quarter -- to make it 70-62. Greece miissed three straight 3-point attempts and Jaka Lakovic made three of four free throws to keep Slovenia ahead.dddddddddddd. Goran Dragic also had five rebounds and four assists, while his brother added 11 points. "We had a huge lead but it wasnt over," Goran Dragic said. "We knew they dont like to play fast, especially in the first two quarters. The key was our rebounding." Slovenia coach Boza Maljkovic said his teams 21 offensive rebounds made the difference. "We played well for 26 minutes, then we went down and I didnt like it." Vassilis Spanoulis led Greece with 21 and eight rebounds. Croatia trailed by 13 early and was down by five at halftime but outscored Italy 26-9 -- including a 10-0 run -- in the third to go ahead for good, holding off a late rally. Shooting guards Bojan Bogdanovic and Krunoslav Simon had eight points each during the run and point guard Roko Leno Ukic scored six straight to spark Croatias comeback. Bogdanovic finished with 18 points, while Luigi Datome had 24 for Italy. "I dont think we need to lose any confidence now. We lost the games against Slovenia and Croatia but we were not dominated and we dont need to fear Spain," Datome said. "The crucial moment was the third quarter, they went 10-0 and turned the game around." Italy cut the deficit to four with 2:44 left to play but Marco Cusin missed a dunk, Bogdanovic grabbed the rebound and Simon hit a jumper before sinking two free throws to end Italys hopes. Croatia got 21 points from its bench, compared to seven for Italy. Jose Calderon led Spain with 23 points, while Petteri Koponen had 17 for Finland. Spain had 15 more rebounds and 10 more assists than Finland, which dropped to 1-3.
