Blue (ankle) had a workout with the Seahawks on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Blue spent the first eight weeks of the season on the Jaguars' injured reserve before being cut in late October, but he's apparently recovered from the ankle injury. The Seahawks worked out some veteran running backs since Rashaad Penny went down with a torn ACL, though any addition is unlikely to factor into the offense while Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise remain healthy.
The Jaguars cut Blue (ankle) from IR on Monday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. Blue will now be free to sign with another squad once he's healthy. He had a consistent role with the Texans last year, rushing 150 times for 499 yards and two touchdowns while adding 20 receptions for 154 scoreless yards over 16 games. Blue could add depth to another backfield.
Blue (ankle) has been designated to return from injured reserve. Blue injured his ankle preseason Week 2 and has spent time in a walking boot in the meantime. With his placement on IR after cut-down day Aug. 31, he was eligible to return to the 53-man roster at a later point in the campaign, and the Jaguars have confirmed that he'll be a candidate to do so.
The Jaguars placed Blue (ankle) on injured reserve Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Blue had been spotted in a walking boot early last week due to the ankle injury, and will now have to sit out the first eight games of the season before he's eligible to return. Blue's emergence as the primary backup to Leonard Fournette was a positive sign for he and the team, but now that he's sidelined, the role likely will go to rookie Ryquell Armstead. Aside from the aforementioned players, recent acquisitions Devine Ozigbo and Tyler Ervin are the remaining running backs on the roster.
Blue (ankle) is in a walking boot and won't play in Thursday's preseason game against Miami, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports. Blue's absence could provide a nice opportunity for fifth-round pick Ryquell Armstead, who passed through the final stage of the NFL's concussion protocol Sunday. The rookie still has time to make his case for a backup role, though Blue appeared to have the lead for the No. 2 job before he injured his ankle. The messy depth situation could encourage Jacksonville to give Leonard Fournette all the work he can handle.
