Ryquell Armstead is still battling serious complications from COVID-19.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that the Jaguars running back is not expected to return this season, “because of symptoms that he has suffered while battling COVID-19.”

Armstead was expected to take over the Jacksonville backfield after Leonard Fournette was shockingly cut during the offseason.

The 23-year-old was initially placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list (a new designation for 2020) in August, and again in September. He has been hospitalized twice and has experienced, “significant respiratory issues, and has been hit harder than some expected,” Schefter wrote.

Fortunately, Schefter added that Armstead “is expected to return next season at full strength, according to sources.”

More than one million people worldwide have died because of coronavirus.
