Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Darboh (hip) has resumed practicing and has looked good in those sessions, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
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.
The Seahawks placed Darboh (hip) on injured reserve Friday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
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 ineligible to return to the Seahawks this season.
Darboh (hip) was waived by the Patriots on Tuesday after failing a physical, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.
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.
The Patriots claimed Darboh (hip) off waivers Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.
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.
Darboh (hip) was waived by Seattle on Saturday, the team's official website reports.
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.
Darboh (hip) didn't play in Thursday's preseason finale against Oakland, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
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.
Darboh (hip) will play in Thursday's preseason finale against Oakland, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
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.
Darboh (hip) won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Vikings, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Darboh's absence is approaching two weeks, but it's uncertain as to what kind of progress is being made. The Michigan product showed some flashes of ability during his rookie campaign, but he currently finds himself outside of the top four on the depth chart at wide receiver. Availability is as important as anything, so an extended absence won't do Darboh any favors leading into the regular season.
Darboh (hip) is also dealing with a clavicle injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
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.
Darboh (hip) will be out for another week, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Darboh suffered what appears to have been a fairly serious injury at some point last weekend, 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 cuts.
Coach Pete Carroll considers Darboh day-to-day with a hip injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Darboh is competing for 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.
Darboh caught eight of thirteen targets for 71 yards in 16 games for the Seahawks in 2017.
Darboh caught only three passes in three preseason games and similarly struggled to make an offensive impact for Seattle in the regular season. Hopefully a full offseason with the Seahawks will lead to better production in the 23-year-old sophomore season.
Darboh caught both of his targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Giants.
The 29 yards were a career high for the rookie, who is trying to work his way up the depth chart in Seattle. His 21 offensive snaps were still just fifth among Seattle receivers on Sunday, so he still has a ways to go. As he has just five catches thus far this season, he should not be on anyone's fantasy radar at this point.
Darboh nabbed his lone target for a 16-yard gain in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers.
Darboh's lone catch came late in the first quarter and helped set up Seattle's second field goal of the contest. Overall, Darboh was on the field for 14 of 82 offensive snaps. After trading away Jermaine Kearse, Seattle opened up space behind Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin. The battle between Paul Richardson, Tanner McEvoy and Darboh -- who trailed the group in snaps on Sunday -- will be worth watching.
Darboh caught three passes -- his first in the preseason -- for 22 yards in the exhibition finale Thursday at Oakland.
Darboh, who was targeted four times, has done next to nothing this preseason, but the third-round pick is still expected to make the roster. He isn't likely to see much playing time in the regular season, though.
Darboh did not catch either of his two targets Friday against the Chiefs and has yet to catch a pass in preseason.
Darboh did not play in the first exhibition game because of a sternum injury and then left the second preseason game with a concussion after one target. He played 10 snaps Friday. Darboh has done little to impress, but the Seahawks aren't likely to cut their third-round pick, and there's little chance he would pass through waivers if they wanted to put him on the practice squad.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Darboh has cleared concussion protocol, Tony Drovetto of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Darboh was forced to leave last week's preseason game against the Vikings after receiving a blow to the head. Fortunately, he avoided an extended setback and could be ready to go for the Seahawks' next exhibition Friday against the Chiefs, assuming he's able to put in a couple of practices during the week.
Darboh is being evaluated for a concussion and won't return to Friday's preseason game against the Vikings, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.
Darboh doesn't necessarily have a concussion but the Seahawks are going to make sure before they let him get back on the field. While the third-round rookie is in pretty safe standing as far as securing a roster spot goes, missed time at this stage in the preseason could potentially have a negative impact on his ability to carve out a significant role on offense ahead of Week 1.
Darboh is nursing an injured sternum, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports.
Darboh reportedly injured his sternum during Friday's practice and was unable to play in Sunday's preseason game as a result. The team doesn't appear too concerned regarding his status moving forward, which is a good sign. With Paul Richardson (shoulder) out for an indefinite amount of time, Darboh would presumably have an opportunity to step up in his place when healthy.
The Seahawks selected Darboh in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 106th overall.
Darboh (6-foot-2, 214 pounds) is a well-built and athletic receiver who generally showed a competent skill set in college, but probably didn't show enough on the field to profile as more than a WR2 type in the NFL. With a 4.45-second 40 and 124-inch broad jump, Darboh has the tools to be a fantasy factor at some point, and there might be more opportunity than assumed in Seattle. Tyler Lockett is returning from a compound leg fracture, and Jermaine Kearse has never shown much as a receiver.
