Jacksonville Jaguars running back Ryquell Armstead is reportedly battling coronavirus symptoms and is not expected to play again during the 2020 season.

Armstead didn’t get a chance to play in a game this season. James Robinson has emerged as the team’s starting running back and the team released Leonard Fournette, who later signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 23-year-old New Jersey native played in each of Jacksonville’s 16 games last season when he was a rookie. He had 108 rushing yards on 35 carries but never crossed the goal line.

Several players have been put on the reserve/COVID-19 list this season. The list is reserved for those who contract the virus or come into contact with someone who has contracted the virus.
