The Jaguars have placed RB Ryquell Armstead on the COVID list. It's the 2nd time he's landed there. Armstead also dealt with a groin injury throughout camp, according to ESPN's Michael DiRocco. It's looking like it'll be Chris Thompson, Devine Ozigbo and James Robinson in Jacksonville's backfield for Week 1.

Jaguars RB Ryquell Armstead has been hospitalized twice for complications with COVID-19 and will miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. This shouldn't affect any fantasy teams, given that Armstead has yet to play this season. But it at least clears the way for Devine Ozigbo to follow James Robinson if the starter goes down.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone says it will be "a while" before RB Ryquell Armstead is ready to play. Armstead is back on the COVID list after opening camp there. He also missed time this summer with a groin injury, so he hasn't practiced much. It'll be Devine Ozigbo, Chris Thompson and James Robinson in Jacksonville's backfield at least for Week 1. None is an exciting fantasy option out of the gate -- but they're all worth stashing in most leagues.

Jaguars RB Ryquell Armstead (hamstring) has been activated from the PUP list. He'll now duke it out with Alfred Blue for the #2 RB job. It's an unexciting battle -- but the winner could have fantasy value this season considering Leonard Fournette's injury history.

Jaguars RB Ryquell Armstead has been placed on the PUP list to open training camp. The rookie has been sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered way back in early June. Consider Alfred Blue the favorite to win the title of Leonard Fournette Handcuff for now. We'll see if Armstead can get on the field and make a push.

The Jaguars grabbed Temple RB Ryquell Armstead in Round 5 of the 2019 NFL Draft. Armstead compiled 2,812 yards and 34 scores on 573 carries (4.9 YPC) over the past 4 seasons, adding a 29-175-0 receiving line. He’s a power runner at 5’11 and 220 pounds but ranked just 51st in this RB class in Pro Football Focus’ 2018 Elusive Rating. Armstead also disappointed with a 24th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. He’ll battle Alfred Blue for backup duties this year behind Leonard Fournette, who’s had trouble staying healthy.
