  • Devine Ozigbo: Working out for Patriots

    Ozigbo will work out for the Patriots on Tuesday, Mike Reiss of reports.

    New England appears poised to add Ozigbo to the practice squad, assuming his tryout goes well. With J.J. Taylor (undisclosed) having been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, the Patriots are in need of emergency backfield depth.

  • Devine Ozigbo: Joins Pats' practice squad

    The Patriots have signed Ozigbo to their practice squad.

    Ozigbo has previously played for the Jaguars and Saints, and was just released by Jacksonville on Nov. 27. Overall, he has only played in three NFL games. The 25-year-old will now look to make an impression on the team's practice squad.

  • Devine Ozigbo: Waived by Jacksonville

    Ozigbo was waived by the Jaguars on Saturday, Michael DiRocco of reports.

    Ozigbo was claimed off waivers by the Jaguars on Nov. 1 and was active for the Jaguars' Week 9 win over the Bills. However, the former Cornhusker has registered back-to-back inactives due to coach's decision and will now have to look for his third team this season.

  • Jaguars' Devine Ozigbo: Inactive Sunday

    Ozigbo (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Indianapolis.

    Ozigbo was active for Week 9 but won't be suiting up Sunday with James Robinson (heel) cleared to play. Carlos Hyde will work as the No. 2 tailback with Dare Ogunbowale serving as the reserve option.

  • Jaguars' Devine Ozigbo: Claimed by Jags

    Ozigbo was claimed off waivers by the Jaguars on Monday.

    Ozigbo was waived by New Orleans over the weekend and will now return to Jacksonville, where he spent the previous two seasons. The 25-year-old will provide some backfield depth after starter James Robinson (ankle) picked up an injury Sunday.

  • Devine Ozigbo: Waived by Saints

    Ozigbo was waived by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Ozigbo was rendered moot after Mark Ingram joined the team in a trade earlier in the week. The 25-year-old will look to latch on with another team or hang around on the practice squad.

  • Saints' Devine Ozigbo: Nets four yards in win

    Ozigbo lost three yards on one carry and caught his only target for seven yards in Monday's 13-10 win over the Seahawks.

    Ozigbo entered the contest as the only healthy running back on the active roster behind Alvin Kamara. Despite New Orleans' lack of depth, the 25-year-old totaled just two touches behind Alvin Kamara, who led the team with 30 total touches. For fantasy purposes, Ozigbo is nothing more than a handcuff to Kamara, and not a strong one at that with Tony Jones (ankle) likely returning from injured reserve in the near future.

  • Saints' Devine Ozigbo: Logs handful of offensive snaps

    Ozigbo logged seven snaps on offense during Sunday's 33-22 win over Washington.

    With Tony Jones (ankle) on injured reserve, Ozigbo outpaced Dwayne Washington by five offensive snaps while fullback Alex Armah more than doubled his previous season high with 16. However, no one but Alvin Kamara, who saw the vast majority of the playing time, touched the ball. It seems likely that none of these guys will approach the modest fantasy value Jones offered before getting injured.

  • Saints' Devine Ozigbo: Signs with Saints

    Ozigbo signed a contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Ozigbo joined Jacksonville's practice squad after being cut at the end of training camp, but he'll now make his way to New Orleans. The 25-year-old appeared in 18 games for the Jaguars between 2018 and 2019, totaling 10 carries for 28 yards and 12 catches for 65 yards. He'll step in as New Orleans' No. 3 tailback with Tony Jones (ankle) expected to be out the next few weeks.

  • Devine Ozigbo: Resurfaces on practice squad

    Jacksonville signed Ozigbo to the practice squad Wednesday.

    Ozigbo is set to begin the 2021 regular season as an emergency practice squad option behind James Robinson, Carlos Hyde and Dare Ogunbowale. He suited up for eight games last season but only handled one carry.

  • Devine Ozigbo: Waived by Jacksonville

    Ozigbo has been waived by the Jaguars.

    Ozigbo ended up being the odd man out in the Jaguars' backfield, though if he goes unclaimed, he could resurface with the team in some capacity. Jacksonville's top three RBs following initial cut-downs are James Robinson, Carlos Hyde and Dare Ogunbowale.

  • Jaguars' Devine Ozigbo: Finds end zone in preseason finale

    Ozigbo carried the ball 11 times for 68 yards and a touchdown and caught both his targets for 10 yards in Sunday's preseason win over the Cowboys.

    The numbers look good, but Ozigbo was the fourth back into the game for the Jaguars after James Robinson, Carlos Hyde and Dare Ogunbowale handled all the first-half snaps, and Ozigbo's performance likely didn't allow him to move up the depth chart. The third-year RB spent more time on special teams than he did on offense when he was active last year, and the same is likely to be true again in 2021.

  • Jaguars' Devine Ozigbo: No touches in finale

    Ozigbo played only one offensive snap during Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Colts.

    Dare Ogunbowale dominated the backfield work with workhorse James Robinson (ankle) missing the finale two games of the season. Ozigbo ended the season with one carry for one yard and nine catches for 42 yards in eight games. The 24-year-old remains under contract for 2021, but there are hardly any roster guarantees for Jacksonville's backfield behind Robinson.

  • Jaguars' Devine Ozigbo: Two touches in secondary role

    Ozigbo had one carry for one yard and caught his lone target for three yards during Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Bears.

    The 24-year-old played a season-high 11 offensive snaps Sunday, but it was a disappointing total given that workhorse James Robinson (ankle) was sidelined. Dare Ogunbowale stepped into the lead role and dominated the workload, totaling 78 yards on 17 touches while playing 71 percent of the offensive snaps. Even if Robinson is unable to play in Week 17, Ozigbo is likely to remain in the backup role behind Ogunbowale.
