Bo Scarbrough News

Dropped by Raiders

The Raiders waived Scarbrough on Monday.

Analysis: Scarbrough was firmly behind Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard on the Raiders' depth chart, so this move did not come out of nowhere. The team had to make a choice as they trimmed their roster down to 85. The journeyman will have to continue his search for a stable job.

Picked up by Raiders

Scarbrough signed with the Raiders on Friday.

Analysis: Scarbrough has been a journeyman since being drafted by the Cowboys in the seventh-round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He other stops include Jacksonville, Seattle and Detroit. With Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard all secure in their roles in the backfield, the Alabama product figures to compete for the No. 4 spot on the team's depth chart, should Coach Gruden ultimately opt to carry that many backs.

Out with torn hamstring

Scarbrough will undergo surgery to address a torn hamstring, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old sustained the injury against the Cardinals last Thursday and was placed on the Seahawks' practice squad injured list Monday, and he seems likely to be unavailable for the rest of the season. Scarbrough had six carries for 31 yards in what was his only game action of the year.

Moves to injured list

Scarbrough (hamstring) was placed on Seattle's practice squad injured list Monday, Logan Reardon of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Scarbrough sustained the injury during Thursday's win over the Cardinals and will be sidelined for the next few weeks. The move opens up a spot on the Seahawks' practice squad.

Back to practice squad

Scarbrough (hamstring) reverted to the Seahawks' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transaction report.

Analysis: Scarbrough played in Thursday's 28-21 win over the Cardinals, rotating in ahead of rookie DeeJay Dallas and finishing with three carries for 31 yards. However, the third-year running back suffered a hamstring injury late in the game and didn't return. He'll recover on the team's practice squad, and he can be elevated to the Seahawks' active roster one more time this year.

Unlikely to return Thursday

Scarbrough is doubtful to return to Thursday's game against the Cardinals due to a hamstring injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Scarbrough carried the ball six times for 31 yards before being forced out, and with under two and a half minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, his chances of retaking the field are negligible. Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas are Seattle's reamining healthy running backs.

Exits game with injury

Scarbrough was forced out of Thursday's game against the Cardinals due to an apparent leg injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Scarbrough was tackled with his legs awkwardly placed beneath him with less that five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. He had six carries for 31 yards while working behind Carlos Hyde before being forced off the field. The Seahawks elevated Scarbrough from the practice squad just prior to Thursday's divisional contest.

Gets callup from practice squad

The Seahawks elevated Scarbrough from their practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Jordan Duncan of Seattle's official site reports.

Analysis: Since Scarbrough won't count toward Seattle's 53-man roster limit, he received the callup from the practice squad over Alex Collins, who is no longer eligible be flexed from the practice squad without a corresponding roster move. Collins acted as the lead option on the ground for Seattle in the Week 10 loss to the Rams, but Scarbrough isn't expected to rank any higher than second in the pecking order behind Carlos Hyde, who is expected to start in place of an injured Chris Carson (questionable, foot). Scarbrough hasn't shown much acumen as a pass catcher either during his three professional seasons, so DeeJay Dallas probably has a leg up on him on handling the change-of-pace role that Travis Homer (doubtful, wrist/knee/thumb) has mostly filled the past two weeks.

Joins Seattle's practice squad

The Seahawks signed Scarbrough to the practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Scarbrough previously spent time with the Seahawks as a rookie back in 2018, and he'll now provide the team with emergency depth at running back. He becomes the second tailback added to Seattle's practice squad in as many weeks, joining Alex Collins, who had been elevated for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Heads to waivers

The Lions waived Scarbrough on Saturday.

Analysis: Scarbrough didn't suit up a game for the Lions, as he battled an undisclosed injury and was a healthy scratch last week against the Falcons. The Lions opted to bring in Jonathan Williams to add depth in the backfield behind D'Andre Swift, Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson, and Scarbrough was the odd man out. He carried 89 times for 377 yards (4.2 yards per carry) over six games with the Lions last season, so he should be able to find at least a practice squad role soon.

Oct 31, 2020 7:56 PM EST

Inactive Sunday

Scarbrough (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Analysis: The 24-year-old was activated off injured reserve Saturday after missing the first five games of the season for undisclosed reasons, but he won't be in uniform Sunday. Even if active, Scarbrough figures to play a minimal offensive role while Adrian Peterson, D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson remain healthy.

Moves off injured reserve

Scarbrough (undisclosed) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: It's unclear why Scarbrough has not played up until this point, but in any case he'll joined a crowded Lions backfield that will likely feature Adrian Peterson, D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson all to varying degrees. As a result, Scarbrough is merely depth at running back and more likely a special teams player so long as the trio all remain healthy.

Oct 24, 2020 1:14 PM EST

Back at practice

The Lions designated Scarbrough (undisclosed) to return from injured reserve Wednesday.

Analysis: Scarbrough has missed the Lions' first four games with the unspecified injury, but he's apparently now ready to resume participating in practice. Given the time that he's missed in addition to the fact that the Lions are already running out a crowded three-man backfield committee consisting of Adrian Peterson, D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson, Scarbrough seems unlikely to be moved back to the 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville. Beginning Wednesday, the Lions will have a 21-day window to evaluate Scarbrough for a return to the roster, but he'll stay on IR for the remainder of the season if he isn't activated by Nov. 4.

Oct 14, 2020 8:11 AM EST

Goes to injured reserve

The Lions placed Scarbrough on injured reserve Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Based on the rules regarding injured reserve this season, Scarbrough can be removed from the list after three weeks, but this move ensures he won't be available to the Lions early on. Second-round rookie D'Andre Swift is tending to an undisclosed injury at the moment, so the team brought on Adrian Peterson to provide some depth behind him and Kerryon Johnson. Beyond that trio, second-year pro also is available to Detroit's backfield.

Limited in practice

Scarbrough (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Analysis: Scarbrough had been absent since last Monday, perhaps hurting his chances to earn a short-yardage role behind Kerryon Johnson and D'Andre Swift (undisclosed). The Lions have Scarbrough, Jason Huntley, Ty Johnson and Jonathan Williams all battling for what likely will be two roster spots. Scarbrough entered training camp as the team's No. 3 back, but the missed time could drop him down if other players have made an impression on the coaching staff.

Dealing with injury

Scarbrough (undisclosed) has been unable to practice since Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Analysis: Scarbrough entered training camp as the favorite for the No. 3 running back job, potentially serving as a short-yardage replacement for the lead duo of Kerryon Johnson and D'Andre Swift. The missed practice time could impact Scarbrough's bid for a Week 1 role, especially with Jonathan Williams reportedly looking good at camp. The Lions also have Ty Johnson and fifth-round rookie Jason Huntley battling for RB spots at the back end of the roster.

Aug 21, 2020 7:19 AM EST

No roster lock

While Scarbrough is the Lions' clear No. 3 running back, he may not be a roster lock, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports.

Analysis: After impressing in a brief four-game stint as a starter, Scarbrough ended the 2019 campaign as the No. 2 option once Kerryon Johnson returned from a knee injury. Since then, Detroit yet again splurged on the running back position by spending a second-round pick on rookie D'Andre Swift. Should Johnson and Swift prove capable of handling early-down and short-yardage work in practices this summer, it's possible Scarbrough's one-dimensional skillset may prove less worthy of a roster spot compared to more versatile options like Jason Huntley or Ty Johnson.

Jun 15, 2020 7:28 AM EST

Nine carries in season finale

Scarbrough rushed nine times for 42 yards during Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: The Lions again had a healthy Kerryon Johnson lead the backfield in both snaps and rushing attempts while Scarbrough and rookie Ty Johnson finished second and third in both categories, respectively. While Scarbrough was once again effective with the touches he was given, he didn't reach the end zone and that's probably something he'll need to do to be fantasy relevant as a complementary running back. It's thus hard to get too excited about his prospects in 2020 with the talented Kerryon Johnson set to continue as the lead runner. In fact, the Detroit backfield might be one to generally avoid altogether if reports out of training camp suggest the big-bodied Scarbrough is preparing for usage as the team's preferred option around the goal line.

Secondary back upon Johnson return

Scarbrough ran for 34 yards on eight carries and did not receive a target during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: The 23-year-old back out of Alabama returned to the lineup after missing Week 15 with a ribs issue, and garnered 38.1 percent of Detroit's RB carries as Kerryon Johnson made his long-awaited return from a knee injury. Despite possessing practically no additional fantasy upside in the passing game, Scarbrough made viable contributions by commanding 18 carries per game and rushing to a 4.2 yards-per-attempt average Weeks 11 through 14. He projects to remain a secondary option to Johnson in Detroit's season-finale matchup against Green Bay's bottom-third rush defense.

Dec 22, 2019 7:38 PM EST

Available Week 16

Scarbrough (ribs) is active for Sunday's game in Denver.

Analysis: Scarbrough is ready to go after sitting out Week 15 due to a rib injury, but his return coincides with Kerryon Johnson's (knee) first game action since Week 7. Johnson is expected to have "significant carries," per Ian Rapoport, so Scarbrough figures to get little more than scraps out of the Lions' backfield. Plus, Scarbrough will be vying with Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic for those sparse touches.
