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.
