Report: Jags RB Armstead (COVID-19) to miss season

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Ryquell Armstead is expected to miss the rest of the season as he continues to battle the coronavirus, ESPN reported Sunday.

Armstead, who turns 24 on Friday, has been hospitalized twice while suffering multiple COVID-19 complications including significant respiratory issues, league sources told ESPN.

The Jaguars placed Armstead on the reserve/COVID-19 list twice this season, most recently during the first week of September.

A fifth-round pick out of Temple in the 2019 NFL Draft, Armstead was expected to compete to replace Leonard Fournette this season. In his absence, undrafted rookie James Robinson has emerged as Jacksonville’s starter at running back.

Armstead appeared in 16 games with one start as a 2019 rookie, rushing 35 times for 108 yards and catching 14 passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns.
