Armah rushed twice for three yards in Week 10's loss to the Steelers.
Armah now sports 14 yards on seven rushes through nine games, showing the Panthers will throw their fullback a bone every now and then.
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said Thursday that he expects Armah to earn reps at tight end in the team's Week 2 game against the Falcons, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.
The Panthers officially list Armah as a fullback, but with Greg Olsen (foot) expected to be sidelined for at least a few weeks, the team requires additional depth at tight end. Though he scored on a goal-line carry in Carolina's season-opening win over the Cowboys, the 6-foot-2, 255-pound Armah is mainly valued for his blocking, and that's likely what he'll be tasked with nearly any time he lines up at tight end. Neither Armah nor Chris Manhertz is expected to draw many targets whenever on the field, with rookie fourth-round pick Ian Thomas instead representing the most likely candidate of the position group to see increased involvement as a pass catcher while Olsen is out.
Armah did not participate in Sunday's practice due to a bruised leg, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Armah's leg bruise isn't expected to keep him sidelined from training camp for very long, while the Panthers didn't force their lone fullback to practice Sunday. Carolina will hope to have Armah back in time for their preseason opener against the Bills on Thursday.
Armah (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with Tampa Bay.
Armah was limited in practice on Wednesday before sitting out sessions on both Thursday and Friday. His absence will leave Carolina without a healthy fullback, possibly leading to some extra snaps for Cameron Artis-Payne or Christian McCaffrey.
Armah (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.
Armah finished the week as a non-participant after putting in a limited session Wednesday, which doesn't inspire confidence in his status for Sunday. The Panthers would be without a true fullback against the Buccaneers if the 23-year-old cannot play.
Armah was held out of practice Thursday due to a hamstring injury, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The hamstring issue limited Armah at Wednesday's practice, but the fullback wasn't able to get on the field for any of the Panthers' drills during Thursday's session. Armah has been active for each of the Panthers' last five contests, but he's failed to log a single touch during that stretch. That's unlikely to change if Armah is able to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, given his role as a blocker out of the backfield.
Armah was promoted to the Panthers' active roster Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
With tight end Greg Olsen landing on injured reserve after breaking his right foot, the Panthers will use their open roster spot to promote Armah. Armah was drafted in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by Carolina before landing on the team's practice squad.
