Amara Darboh: Rises to active roster

The Steelers promoted Darboh to the active roster Monday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Darboh was selected by the Seahawks in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and he played 16 games in his rookie season, recording eight receptions for 71 yards. The receiver spent the 2018 season in IR due to a hip injury, and he's bounced around but hasn't been active for a game since. Darboh figures to work as a depth option with the Steelers moving forward.

The Steelers signed Darboh to the practice squad Monday, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Darboh recently spent time on Tampa Bay's active roster, though he didn't see game action during that period. The 2017 third-round pick last took snaps during his rookie campaign in Seattle, when he caught eight of 13 targets for 71 yards. He'll now look to prove himself in Pittsburgh.

Amara Darboh: Receives promotion to 53-man roster

Darboh signed a contract with the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Analysis: Darboh signed with Tampa Bay's practice squad in mid-September and he'll now make his way to the 53-man roster heading into Week 7. The 2017 third-round pick hasn't seen game action since his rookie campaign in Seattle, where he caught eight targets for 71 yards over 16 games.

Amara Darboh: Let go by Seattle

Darboh was waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Darboh was waived to make room for fellow wideouts Nyqwan Murray and Khalil Lewis. The 2017 third-round pick appeared to have opportunity before him in Seattle with DK Metcalf (knee) and David Moore (shoulder) both injured, but was unable to carve out a depth role. He'll work to find a depth gig elsewhere in the league.

Amara Darboh: Returns healthy

Coach Pete Carroll said Darboh (hip) is back at practice and looks good, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: The 2017 third-round pick caught just eight passes in 16 games his rookie season, then spent his entire sophomore campaign on injured reserve with a hip injury. The Seahawks actually waived him at the end of the preseason, but he reverted back to their roster after the Patriots claimed him and he failed a physical examination. Darboh needs to establish special-teams value to secure a roster spot, after the Seahawks selected D.K. Metcalf (second round), Gary Jennings (fourth) and John Ursua (seventh) in the 2019 draft.

Amara Darboh: Shifts to IR

The Seahawks placed Darboh (hip) on injured reserve Friday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Darboh underwent an odd chain of events after he was waived by the Seahawks, as he was claimed by the Patriots but failed a physical, sending him back to Seattle's roster. He then had hip surgery. His injured reserve designation is retroactive to Sept. 5, making him inelgibile to return to the Seahawks this season.

Amara Darboh: Fails physial

Darboh (hip) was waived by the Patriots on Tuesday after failing a physical, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.

Analysis: After going thin at wide receiver in their initial 53-man roster, the Patriots made a move to claim Darboh off waivers Sunday. However, he was subsequently unable to pass a physical and will now be left to look for a new opportunity.

Amara Darboh: Claimed by Patriots

The Patriots claimed Darboh (hip) off waivers Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Analysis: New England went thin at wide receiver on the initial 53-man roster, planning to scoop up a couple players after other teams made cuts. The Seahawks selected Darboh with a supplemental third-round pick in last year's draft, but he only caught eight passes as a rookie and has struggled to stay healthy this summer. The Patriots will see how Darboh and Chad Hansen fit in behind Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson while Julian Edelman serves a four-game suspension. Darboh's hip injury wasn't believed to be serious and may not even be a factor at this point.

Amara Darboh: Waived by Seahawks

Darboh (hip) was waived by Seattle on Saturday, the team's official website reports.

Analysis: A third-round pick last year, Darboh caught just eight passes as a rookie and never seemed to generate much momentum as a potential contributor in the offense. The Seahawks likely drafted him with the belief he'd be a key special teamer at the very least, but even that never came to fruition. The team may still keep Darboh on the practice squad if he passes through waivers unclaimed. There hasn't been any suggestion that his recent hip injury is serious.

Amara Darboh: Misses another game

Darboh (hip) didn't play in Thursday's preseason finale against Oakland, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll said Darboh would return for Thursday's game, but it didn't come to fruition. The 2017 third-round pick is on the roster bubble and will finish the preseason without any catches in one appearance.

Amara Darboh: Will play in Thursday's preseason contest

Darboh (hip) will play in Thursday's preseason finale against Oakland, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: The former Michigan standout will likely play for his job during the team's last audition before the games count. While Darboh has shown flashes of potential during his short tenure in Seattle, a history of inconsistencies and nagging injuries has led him to fear his job security. Darboh is believed to be battling Marcus Johnson, David Moore and Keenan Reynolds for depth receiver spots.

Amara Darboh: Out for Friday's preseason contest

Darboh (hip) won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Vikings, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Darboh's hip injury is coming on two weeks now and it's uncertain as to what kind of progress is being made at the moment. The Michigan product showed some flashes of ability during his rookie campaign one season ago, but Darboh currently finds himself outside of the top four on the receiving depth chart. Availability is as important as anything in this league and an extended absence won't do Darboh any favors leading into the regular season.

Amara Darboh: Nursing new injury

Darboh (hip) is also dealing with a clavicle injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Darboh is accumulating injuries at the wrong time, as he is competing for a depth receiver role for the Seahawks. He has been sidelined for nearly two weeks, and his return remains unclear at this point.

August 21, 2018 7:16 PM EST

Amara Darboh: Out another week

Darboh (hip) will be out for another week, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Darboh suffered the injury at some point this past weekend, and it looks like it is a fairly serious one given that he won't be able to take the field for another week. Darboh is competing for one of the final wide receiver spots on the Seahawks' roster, and he'll want to be healthy for the final two preseason games in order to have a legitimate chance at surviving final roster cuts.

August 17, 2018 2:33 PM EST

Amara Darboh: Day-to-day with hip injury

Coach Pete Carroll considers Darboh day-to-day with a hip injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Darboh is competing with or one of the final wideout spots in Seattle, so a quick return may be vital for his chances. The second-year pro didn't make a catch in Thursday's preseason game, but he'll have extra time to recover with Seattle's next contest Saturday against the Chargers.
