Former Husker Devin Osigbo Placed on NFL Injured Reserve

Devin Ozigbo a 2018 graduate from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln has been placed on the injured reserve by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ozigbo had been placed as high as No. 2 on the Jacksonville running back depth chart and was once considered part of the committee set to replace Leonard Fournette following his release. A hamstring injury surfaced Wednesday, however, and things appear to have gone downhill fast. Ozigbo signed with the New Orleans Saints following the 2019 NFL Draft and signed with Jacksonville this past off-season.

With Ryquell Armstead on the COVID list, the Jaguars were set to move forward with James Robinson and Chris Thompson as the only healthy running backs for a Week 1 matchup against Indianapolis, though they have since picked up Dare Ogunbowale in a corresponding move. During Ozigbo’s time with the Husker he accumulated over 2,000 rushing yards with over 20 touchdowns as a do it all back.
