Bo Scarbrough: Signs with Seattle

Scarbrough was signed by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Seahawks were able to obtain Scarbrough from the Jaguars' practice squad, as the former seeks additional help in the backfield with rookie Rashaad Penny dealing with a knee injury. Seattle has been exceptional on the ground this season, but Scarbrough doesn't figure to see much run with starter Chris Carson at full strength.

Bo Scarbrough: Latches on with Jacksonville

Scarbrough was signed to the Jaguars' practice squad Thursday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The former Alabama standout was released from the Cowboys' practice squad Tuesday, and quickly found a new team Thursday. Jacksonville previously signed Jamaal Charles on Tuesday to bolster their running back depth after Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Corey Grant (foot) were ruled out with injuries. Scarbrough could be another injury away from joining the 53-man roster.

Bo Scarbrough: Let go from practice squad

Bo Scarbrough: Joins Dallas practice squad

Scarbrough was signed to the Cowboys practice squad Monday, CBS Dallas-Fort Worth reports.

Analysis: The Alabama product's addition to the practice squad comes 48 hours after being waived by Dallas. Scarbrough was rather unimpressive during his preseason snaps which likely was a major factor in the team's decision to cut him during 53-man roster trims. A physically imposing back, Scarbrough has his work cut out for him if he hopes to regain admiration from the Dallas coaching staff.

Bo Scarbrough: Cut by Cowboys

Scarbrough was released by the Cowboys on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The rookie seventh-round pick struggled this preseason, taking 24 carries for 69 yards (2.9 average) and a touchdown.'s Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys will only have two running backs -- Ezekiel Elliott and Rod Smith -- on their initial 53-man roster. The team likely will try to find a third RB after other teams are finished making cuts. This isn't a great sign for Scarbrough's NFL prospects.

Bo Scarbrough: Fails to impress in preseason finale

Scarbrough rushed four times for 17 yards during Thursday's preseason finale against the Texans.

Analysis: Scarbrough was the second running back to enter the game behind Darius Jackson, who represents the former's primary competition for a roster spot. Neither tailback was particularly impressive. But then again, the Cowboys' third-string offensive line looked awful, making it hard to fault either Scarbrough or Jackson for being ineffective. Still, it's unlikely that Dallas keeps both of these guys around, and only time will tell who ultimately makes the team.

Bo Scarbrough: On roster bubble

Scarbrough rushed seven times for 21 yards during Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Scarbrough was back in action after exiting the team's previous preseason game with a hip issue. Square on the roster bubble given Darius Jackson's emergence this preseason, Scarbrough will need to be more impressive in the Cowboys' preseason finale this Thursday against the Texans in order to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.

Bo Scarbrough: Exits with hip injury

Scarbrough sustained a hip injury during Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Analysis: Scarbrough had a rough day Saturday, rushing four times for minus-two yards before exiting for good with a hip injury of unspecified severity. Fellow backup Darius Jackson, who gained 42 yards on six carries, showed well in his absence, though neither tailback seems to be in a position to unseat Rod Smith as the No. 2 runner before Week 1.

Bo Scarbrough: Makes impact in preseason debut

Scarbrough carried the ball nine times for a team-high 33 yards and a touchdown, while adding two catches for 19 yards, in Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Analysis: The rookie running back put on a show during the Cowboys' second scoring drive of the game, busting out for a 28-yard run that got the offense into the red zone, then finishing the job with a one-yard TD plunge. Injuries in college, not talent, caused Scarbrough to drop to the seventh round of the draft, and in a limited role behind Ezekiel Elliott he could be able to stay healthy and make a surprising contribution with a handful of touches per game. Rod Smith is still expected to open the year in the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, but if Scarbrough keeps flashing in the preseason, he could force his way into Dallas' plans.
