  • Ryquell Armstead: Let go by Jaguars

    Armstead was waived by the Jaguars on Monday, Aaron Wilson of reports. Armstead will look for another team after he spent the 2021 campaign on and off multiple practice squads. The running back has appeared in 18 career games -- all with the Jaguars -- turning 50 carries into 188 yards while also catching 17 passes for 160 yards and two scores. Given he has a serviceable body of work in the NFL, Armstead should be able to find another landing spot in the league.

Armstead spent some time with the Giants during the offseason before being let go in late June, and he'll now receive an opportunity on the Saints' practice squad.

  • Ryquell Armstead: Let go by Giants

    Armstead (illness) was waived by the Giants on Thursday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

In his rookie season in 2019, Armstead recording 108 rushing yards on 35 attempts in 16 games with the Jaguars. The Temple product had appeared to be a candidate to see added work this summer with Saquon Barkley (knee) working back from injury, but now Armstead will need to latch on elsewhere.

  • Giants' Ryquell Armstead: Claimed off waivers

    Armstead (illness) was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Armstead missed the entire 2019 season with the Jaguars due to complications from COVID-19, but he arguably landed in a better spot in terms of potential play timing with not much depth behind star running back Saquon Barkley (knee). Armstead was hospitalized on two separate occasions with COVID-19 symptoms, so it's no guarantee he'll be completely healthy for offseason OTAs. That being said, the 2019 fifth-round pick certainly has the talent to compete for a roster spot alongside veteran castoffs such as Corey Clement and Devontae Booker.

  • Ryquell Armstead: Done in Jacksonville

    The Jaguars waived Armstead (illness) on Monday, John Oehser of the team's official site reports. Armstead joined Jacksonville as a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, but health issues relating to COVID-19 kept him sidelined for the entire duration of the 2020 season. Symptoms of COVID-19 required Armstead to be hospitalized on at least two occasions. With Travis Etienne and Carlos Hyde having joined James Robinson this offseason, the writing was on the wall that cuts would be made in the backfield.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Unlikely to play in 2020

    Armstead (illness) isn't expected to play this season while he continues to experience complications while recovering from COVID-19, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Armstead was expected to challenge for the top job at running back following the release of Leonard Fournette in late August, but the second-year player has struggled to bounce back since initially testing positive for COVID-19 in the summer. According to Schefter, Armstead has been hospitalized on two occasions after experiencing a variety of symptoms of the coronavirus, including significant respiratory issues. The Jaguars believe the 23-year-old will be able to return to action at full strength in 2021, but even if his condition improves in the weeks to come, Armstead won't be rushed back for the second half of the current season.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Expected to miss time

    While meeting with members of the media Monday, coach Doug Marrone noted that there's no timetable for the return of Armstead, who is on the Jaguars' reserve/COVID-19 list. Marrone did acknowledge that Armstead, who is on the list for the second time and also dealt with another illness as well as a groin injury during training camp, will be out "for a while." With Leonard Fournette no longer on the team, the Jaguars are prepared to open the season with a "situation- and matchup-based" approach to how the team's backfield work will be divided, per Michael DiRocco of In Week 1, look for Chris Thompson, Devine Ozigbo and undrafted rookie James Robinson to see touches, with Thompson likely to be active in passing situations while Ozigbo and Robinson rotate on early downs.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Not likely to play Week 1

    Armstead, who was recently placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list for the second time, isn't likely to be available for Week 1, Michael DiRocco of reports. DiRocco notes that the running back also dealt with another illness as well as a groin injury during training camp. It's thus unclear when Armstead might be activated and how prepared to play he'll be at that time. The team's current available backfield options are Chris Thompson, Devine Ozigbo and undrafted rookie James Robinson. Meanwhile, it was reported Saturday that Devonta Freeman had a visit planned with the Jaguars. Looking ahead to the season opener, coach Doug Marrone has acknowledged that the team's approach to who gets carries out of the gate will be "situation and matchup-based." With that in mind, it's possible that Thompson sees the bulk of his early season touches in passing situations, with Ozigbo and Robinson rotating on early downs.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Heads to COVID list

    The Jaguars placed Armstead (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. In the wake of Leonard Fournette getting waived, Armstead moved up the RB pecking order in Jacksonville, but now his practice reps will be impacted. If he continues to log positive tests into next week, it also may impact his viability for a Week 1 game against the Colts. Such a development would leave the Jaguars with a backfield composed of Chris Thompson, Devine Ozigbo and James Robinson.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Looking at big opportunity

    Armstead will move up the depth chart after the Jaguars waived Leonard Fournette on Monday. A 2019 fifth-round pick, Armstead served as Fournette's backup last season but didn't see much playing time until the veteran missed Week 17. It's now Armstead who stands as the best bet to lead the team in carries, though he could be part of a committee that includes some combination of Chris Thompson, Devine Ozigbo and James Robinson. The second-year pro averaged only 3.1 yards on 35 carries and 6.0 yards on 24 targets last year, but he does offer some upside with 4.45 speed in a 220-pound frame.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Going to COVID list

    The Jaguars placed Armstead (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday. Armstead fared modestly as a rookie in 2019, turning 49 touches into 252 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. Notably, he went for 15-85-1, respectively, in a spot start for Leonard Fournette in Week 17. After an offseason in which veteran pass-catching back Chris Thompson joined the Jags, Armstead's outlook wasn't looking bright, at least for this season. Now Armstead must get through testing protocols before he's able to rejoin the team.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Scores in spot start

    Armstead rushed 10 times for 33 yards and caught five of nine targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-20 win over Indianapolis. Armstead got the nod as starter filling in for the ill Leonard Fournette. The rookie fifth-round pick can't match Fournette's prowess on the ground, but he was able to provide a solid fantasy performance with his work in the passing game. Armstead had just 25 touches over the previous 15 games as a back, so there is nearly zero value to be had behind a workhorse like Fournette next season.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: Expected to start for ill Fournette

    Armstead is expected to serve as the Jaguars' starting running back Sunday against the Colts, the Associated Press reports. With the Jaguars downgrading lead back Leonard Fournette (illness/neck) from questionable to doubtful Saturday and the running back acknowledging in a post on his personal Twitter account that he would be sidelined for the season finale, Armstead, a fifth-round rookie out of Temple, should be in line for his most extensive NFL work to date. Though Armstead has served as Fournette's primary backup throughout the season, the role has only translated to 25 carries for 75 yards (3.0 average) and nine receptions for 92 yards in 15 games. Undrafted rookie Devine Ozigbo and practice-squad callup Jeremy McNichols will provide depth behind Armstead in the backfield.

  • Jaguars' Ryquell Armstead: May be needed as Fournette fill-in

    Coach Doug Marrone mentioned Armstead and Devine Ozigbo as candidates to see added snaps out of the Jacksonville backfield Sunday against the Colts with top option Leonard Fournette (neck) listed as questionable for the contest, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. Armstead has played no more than a quarter of the Jaguars' offensive snaps in any game this season while maxing out at eight touches, so the rookie fifth-round pick would likely be in store for his most extensive work to date if Fournette is inactive or limited in the regular-season finale. Given that Fournette was listed as a non-participant in practices Thursday and Friday, he would seem to be trending in the wrong direction as Sunday approaches. While both rookie backs should have roles in the game plan in the event Fournette can't go, Armstead looks like the higher-percentage fantasy play of the two, given that Ozigbo has logged just six total offensive snaps and no touches in 2019.
