Cowboys' 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.
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.
