Report: Giants claim former Jags RB Ryquell Armstead

The New York Giants claimed running back Ryquell Armstead off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars, the NFL Network reported Tuesday.

The Jaguars waived the 2019 fifth-round draft pick on Monday.

Armstead, who missed the 2020 season due to COVID-19, played all 16 games as a rookie out of Temple in 2019 and rushed for 108 yards on 35 carries while adding 144 yards on 14 receptions with two touchdowns.

Armstead, 24, went on the COVID-19 reserve list last August after developing severe respiratory problems.
