Jaguars' rookie running back Ryquell Armstead has cleared concussion protocol.
Armstead missed the Jaguars last contest against the Eagles after leaving the preseason opener with a head injury. He carried the ball eight times for 22 yards and added one catch for six yards.
His stat line may not have been all that impressive, but Armstead has shown plenty of promise throughout training camp. His physical running style, combined with his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, should work well in the Jaguars' new scheme. He'll return to practice this week and should be in line to take snaps in the Jaguars' third preseason game against the Dolphins on Thursday.
Armstead figures to be the second or third back in the rotation behind Leonard Fournette. Alfred Blue has an ankle injury and may not be available to play this week, which could mean extra work for Armstead. For Armstead to have a more significant impact on the game, the Jaguars' offensive line will need to clear some running lanes for the young rusher from Temple.
