Cowboys' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Signs with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong signed a deal with the Cowboys on Tuesday, Todd Archer of reports.

Armstrong worked out for Dallas last week and joins the team for depth at linebacker after Leighton Vander Esch (neck) was placed injured reserve. The 28-year-old will likely fill a role on special teams as he did in five games with the Saints earlier this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong was released by the Saints on Tuesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Armstrong joined the Saints in mid-September and exclusively played special teams during his five games with the team. The 28-year-old has played for six teams since going undrafted out of Miami (FL) in 2013.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong signed a contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Mike Triplett of reports.

Armstrong joins the Saints following the placement of Alex Anzalone (undisclosed) on injured reserve Wednesday. He projects to play a depth role in New Orleans' linebacker corps and contribute on special teams.

Browns' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Re-ups with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong agreed to a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Armstrong started 2018 with the Giants but was eventually cut before signing with the Browns, who liked what they saw in just nine games. Armstrong played mainly on special teams and will likely continue that role behind Joe Schobert.

Browns' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Signs with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong (concussion) signed a contract with the Browns on Thursday.

Armstrong suffered a concussion in Week 6 against the Eagles and was released off injured reserve by the Giants on Tuesday. Armstrong had a solid start to 2018, accumulating 20 tackles (12 solo). Assuming he can clear the concussion protocol, the 27-year-old linebacker could have a role on both defense and special teams for the Browns.

Ray-Ray Armstrong: Let go off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong (concussion) was released off injured reserve by the Giants on Tuesday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Armstrong suffered the concussion against the Eagles in Week 6 and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. The 27-year-old is eligible to play elsewhere, assuming he can clear the concussion protocol.

Giants' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong (concussion) was placed on injured reserve by the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of reports.

Armstrong exited the Giants' Week 6 game against the Eagles due to a concussion and didn't return. As evidenced by this news, the injury will require him to miss a significant amount of time. The Giants signed fellow linebacker Ukeme Eligwe off their practice squad Tuesday to replace Armstrong.

Giants' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Ruled out for remainder of game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Eagles due to a concussion, Ralph Vacchiano of reports.

Armstrong recorded one tackle before exiting the contest. He will have to pass concussion protocol testing before he can return to the practice field next week. Look for Tae Davis and Nathan Stupar to potentially see increased action on defense with Armstrong out.

Giants' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Posts 10 tackles in five games with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong made 10 tackles (five solo) and forced one fumble in five games with the Giants during the 2017 regular season.

Armstrong spent his first 10 contests of the regular season in San Francisco, where he racked up 54 tackles (39 solo), one sack, two passes defensed, two interceptions and one forced fumble before being released in late November. The Giants primarily used Armstrong on special teams, but he finally saw more than 20 defensive snaps in each of the team's final two games of the season. If Armstrong is able to make the final roster in 2018, he'd once again provide depth at outside linebacker.

Giants' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Claimed by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Armstrong was waived by the 49ers over the weekend, and it's no surprise to see the Giants put in the claim since they just placed two more linebackers on injured reserve. The 28-year-old should serve as a reserve strong-side linebacker in New York, but he could potentially carve out a larger role given the team's injury situation.

Ray-Ray Armstrong: Released by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong was released by the 49ers on Friday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The move was made in order to make room on the roster to activate Tank Carridine off injured reserve. Armstrong had seen his role reduced in recent weeks, so it is not surprising he was the odd man out in the situation. He'll now either look for a new opportunity or land on the team's practice squad.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Sees reduction in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong recorded five tackles (all solo) in Sunday's blowout loss to the Cowboys, but he was only on the field for 27 of the team's 75 defensive snaps.

Armstrong was dealing with a minor shoulder injury heading into Sunday's contest, and while that may have played a role in the reduced role, the majority of his snaps were absorbed by safety Eric Reid, who playing out of position at outside linebacker. This development -- coupled with Reuben Foster's return -- could end what was a solid run for Armstrong as an IDP factor.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday against the Cowboys.

Despite dealing with a shoulder injury for the second week in row, Armstrong will continue to hold down the fort at left outside linebacker. That said, he may not match his 7.5 tackles per game with 2017 first-rounder Reuben Foster (ankle) replacing NaVorro Bowman as the play caller on defense.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Armstrong was limited in practice this week after playing 61 of 74 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. The 28-year-old participated in practice throughout the week, so he's expected to ultimately take the field against the Cowboys.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Records eight tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong racked up eight tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 26-24 loss to Washington.

Armstrong wasn't able to extend his two-game interception streak, but he still provided enough in the tackle department to help his IDP owners. NaVorro Bowman's unexpected release this week opened up a starting linebacker spot that Brock Coyle filled Sunday. While the 28-year-old has technically been filling in for Reuben Foster (ankle) at outside linebacker, the team will probably feel inclined to move its prized rookie back to his natural position of inside linebacker, which should keep Armstrong in the starting lineup after his strong play over the past five weeks (39 tackles, a sack, two interceptions and a forced fumble).

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Practices fully Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong (shoulder) logged a full workload at 49ers' practice Friday.

Armstrong was limited Wednesday and Thursday, but it looks like the team was being cautious with the 26-year-old. He is coming off a seven tackle (six solo), one interception performance in Week 5, and looks on track to play Sunday against the Redskins barring any setbacks.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Picks off another pass Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong racked up seven tackles (six solo) with his second interception in as many games in Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss against the Colts.

Armstrong made a crucial interception of Jacoby Brissett in the overtime period, but the 49ers' offense was unable to capitalize on his efforts in an eventual loss. The 28-year-old has been a great source of tackles (31) in addition to his play in coverage over his last four starts. Reuben Foster (ankle) could return to action next week against the Redskins, but Armstrong's recent production may keep him in the starting lineup at the expense of Eli Harold.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Fills up stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong stood out on defense Sunday, recording 10 tackles (eight solo), a sack and an interception in an 18-15 overtime loss to the Cardinals.

Armstrong has taken advantage of Reuben Foster's (ankle) absence, recording a team-high 17 tackles over the past two weeks. IDP owners shouldn't expect too many interceptions going forward, as the one the 28-year-old came down with Sunday was deflected into his hands by Rashard Robinson. It would be a surprise if Foster returned for next week's matchup against the Colts, so Armstrong should gain another start for both the 49ers and IDP owners who are looking for linebacker with high tackle totals. Starting right outside linebacker Eli Harold has been a non-factor this season, which could open a path to a starting role even after Foster returns.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Performs well in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong collected eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 12-9 loss to Seattle.

Armstrong got the start at left outside linebacker as expected, replacing Reuben Foster (ankle), who is expected to miss at least a few more weeks. The 28-year-old held up his end of the bargain in terms of wrapping up the ball carrier, finishing just behind NaVorro Bowman for the team lead in tackles. Armstrong looked shaky in coverage at times, but for IDP purposes, his run defense should keep him relevant until Foster returns from injury.

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Fills in for injured starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstrong replaced the injured Reuben Foster (ankle) Sunday, racking up six tackles (five solo) in a loss to Carolina.

The 49ers suffered a scare when their prized rookie linebacker went down with an apparent ankle injury in the first quarter. X-rays on Foster's ankle came back negative, and he may only miss a week or two, if any time at all, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Armstrong would be in line to start -- and gain temporary IDP value -- if Foster isn't able to suit up Sunday against the Seahawks.
