49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Sees reduction in playing time
Armstrong recorded five tackles (all solo) in Sunday's blowout loss to the Cowboys, but he was only on the field for 27 of the team's 75 defensive snaps.
Armstrong was dealing with a minor shoulder injury heading into Sunday's contest, and while that may have played a role in the reduced role, the majority of his snaps were absorbed by safety Eric Reid, who playing out of position at outside linebacker. This development -- coupled with Reuben Foster's return -- could end what was a solid run for Armstrong as an IDP factor.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Playing Sunday

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Records eight tackles in loss
Armstrong racked up eight tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 26-24 loss to Washington.
Armstrong wasn't able to extend his two-game interception streak, but he still provided enough in the tackle department to help his IDP owners. NaVorro Bowman's unexpected release this week opened up a starting linebacker spot that Brock Coyle filled Sunday. While the 28-year-old has technically been filling in for Reuben Foster (ankle) at outside linebacker, the team will probably feel inclined to move its prized rookie back to his natural position of inside linebacker, which should keep Armstrong in the starting lineup after his strong play over the past five weeks (39 tackles, a sack, two interceptions and a forced fumble)....

49ers' Ray-Ray Armstrong: Picks off another pass Sunday
Armstrong racked up seven tackles (six solo) with his second interception in as many games in Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss against the Colts.
Armstrong made a crucial interception of Jacoby Brissett in the overtime period, but the 49ers' offense was unable to capitalize on his efforts in an eventual loss. The 28-year-old has been a great source of tackles (31) in addition to his play in coverage over his last four starts. Reuben Foster (ankle) could return to action next week against the Redskins, but Armstrong's recent production may keep him in the starting lineup at the expense of Eli Harold.... See More ...
