  • Jordan Scarlett: Off Miami's practice squad

    Scarlett has been cut from the Dolphins' practice squad, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Following the move, Miami's 53-man roster includes fellow running backs Myles Gaskin, Malcolm Brown and Salvon Ahmed. Scarlett, a 2019 fifth-rounder, logged four carries for nine yards in nine games during his rookie season with Carolina, but didn't suit up for any NFL regular-season action in 2020.

  • Jordan Scarlett: Inked to practice squad

    The Dolphins signed Scarlett to the practice squad Thursday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

    Scarlett spent the offseason with Miami, and he will get a chance to continue developing with the team as a member of the practice squad. Running backs Patrick Laird and Gerrid Doaks were also inked to the scout team.

  • Jordan Scarlett: Waived by Miami

    The Dolphins waived Scarlett on Monday.

    Scarlett's only NFL regular-season action came in 2019 for the Panthers, when he appeared in nine games and registered four carries for nine yards. The 25-year-old spent the majority of last season on the Lions' practice squad and will likely have to settle for a similar role for the 2021 campaign.

  • Dolphins' Jordan Scarlett: Links with Dolphins

    The Dolphins signed Scarlett to a reserve/future contract Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Scarlett didn't appear in a regular-season game in 2020, but he did spend time on the Lions' practice squad. The former Florida Gators standout will now get an opportunity to compete for a depth role with Miami this offseason.

  • Jordan Scarlett: Joins Lions' practice squad

    Detroit signed Scarlett to the practice squad Wednesday.

    The Lions cut running back Dalyn Dawkins from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Scarlett appeared in nine games with the Panthers as a rookie last year, but he only touched the ball four times on offense. He'll work to develop in Detroit.

  • Jordan Scarlett: Waived by Carolina

    The Panthers have waived Scarlett, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

    In a corresponding move, the team added kicker/punter Kaare Vedvik, costing Scarlett his roster spot. It remains to be seen if he resurfaces with the Panthers at a later date, but the 2019 fifth-rounder was limited to just four carries in nine games as a rookie last season.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: May contribute in 2020

    Running backs coach Jeff Nixon said earlier this month that he expects Scarlett (knee/ankle) to compete for secondary reps behind starting running back Christian McCaffrey during training camp, Myles Simmons of the Panthers' official site reports.

    The 24-year-old had only four carries across nine games as a rookie in 2019 before landing on injured reserve with knee and ankle issues, but his new position coach still likes his potential. Scarlett, a fifth-round pick last year, will likely have some ground to make up on Reggie Bonnafon if he's to have a realistic chance of earning the No. 2 job behind McCaffrey.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Sent to IR

    The Panthers placed Scarlett (knee/ankle) on injured reserve Friday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

    The fifth-round rookie finishes his inaugural season with seven snaps on offense and 113 on special teams, taking four carries for nine yards. Reggie Bonnafon won the preseason competition for the No. 2 spot at running back, but Scarlett should return in 2020 to compete for that same role. It isn't clear if either his knee or ankle injury is considered severe. Whatever the case, Mike Davis will step in on special teams while also serving as the No. 3 running back.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Ruled out for Week 13

    Scarlett (knee/ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Scarlett suffered a knee injury during Week 12's game against the Saints, and he isn't yet ready to retake the field. In his absence, Reggie Bonnafon and Mike Davis will serve as the backups to star running back Christian McCaffery.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Dealing with two injuries

    Scarlett (knee/ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Scarlett exited this past Sunday's game against the Saints with a knee injury and didn't return. It's concerning that he's listed as DNP to start the practice week, but his potential absence for Sunday's game against the Redskins would mainly affect special teams and depth behind Christian McCaffrey.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Tweaks knee

    Scarlett (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

    The injury occurred on special teams as Scarlett isn't an offensive regular. With Scarlett's departure, Reggie Bonnafon is the only healthy running back behind starter Christian McCaffrey.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Done for rest of game

    Scarlett (knee) is ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Saints, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

    It didn't take long for Scarlett to go from questionable to out, so his practice status will likely be monitored over the upcoming week. Reggie Bonnafon is now the only backup to bell cow Christian McCaffrey.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Gets late carries

    Scarlett rushed four times for nine yards in Sunday's 51-13 loss to the 49ers.

    Scarlett's carries all came on Carolina's final offensive drive when the game result was already long past being decided. The rookie played only those four snaps on offense, trailing fellow tailback Reggie Bonnafon's 12, as both continue to be used very sparingly behind superstar Christian McCaffrey.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: No offensive snaps in debut

    Scarlett did not feature on any offensive snaps in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Rams.

    Scarlett got on the field for five plays on special teams but watched Christian McCaffrey for all 67 of Carolina's offensive snaps. Although the Panthers hope to be more judicious with McCaffrey's workload over the course of this season, Week 1 didn't offer Scarlett, the team's rookie fifth-rounder, any opportunities to spell the superstar.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: In backup mix

    Following the release of Cameron Artis-Payne, Scarlett is now in the mix to serve as Christian McCaffrey's top backup, ESPN's David Newton reports.

    The Panthers' posted depth chart lists Reggie Bonnafon and Scarlett, in that order, behind McCaffrey. As a result, in the absence of any veteran additions, both Bonnafon and Scarlett -- a 2019 fifth-rounder -- are now just one injury away (to McCaffrey) from both added opportunities and fantasy consideration.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Scores in preseason finale

    Scarlett rushed 11 times for 22 yards, and caught all three of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night's 25-19 preseason win over the Steelers.

    Scarlett entered the game on Carolina's second offensive series, featuring behind veteran Cameron Artis-Payne. Although Scarlett didn't get much going on the ground, his eight-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter helped him clinch a better performance than Artis-Payne, who finished with 10 yards on three touches. At worst, Scarlett will begin his rookie season as the Panthers' No. 3 tailback, but it wouldn't be surprising if he's deemed Christian McCaffrey's backup before long.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Leads Carolina in carries

    Scarlett rushed 10 times for 24 yards and caught his only target for eight yards in Thursday night's 10-3 preseason loss to the Patriots.

    Scarlett entered the contest after Christian McCaffrey, adding confidence to his prospects of serving as Carolina's top backup this season. Although the rookie fifth-rounder didn't produce all that much, his involvement should surely have fellow tailbacks Cameron Artis-Payne and Elijah Holyfield on alert ahead of the regular season roster cut down, especially considering those two combined to play one offensive snap Thursday.

  • Panthers' Jordan Scarlett: Picks up 49 yards

    Scarlett rushed for 35 yards on eight carries and added a 14-yard catch during Friday's 27-14 loss to Buffalo.

    Scarlett entered the game in the second quarter in relief of Cameron Artis-Payne and did a solid job of moving the chains on the way toward a pair of second-quarter field goals. Scarlett seems -- on the outset -- like the perfect foil for Christian McCaffrey, a powerful early-down back who can take some of the hits for Carolina's superstars. In practice, McCaffrey carried the ball for 52.6% of Carolina's attempts in 2018, with Cam Newton running for another 24.3%. Surely, the goal is going to be to limit Newton's carries, but will it be enough for Scarlett to be much of a factor?
