Bo Scarbrough: Out with torn hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Bo Scarbrough: Moves to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Bo Scarbrough: Back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Seahawks' Bo Scarbrough: Unlikely to return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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.

Seahawks' Bo Scarbrough: Exits game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Seahawks' Bo Scarbrough: Gets callup from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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 likely won't be anything more than a secondary ballcarrier 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.

Bo Scarbrough: Joins Seattle's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks signed Scarbrough to the practice squad Wednesday.

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.

Bo Scarbrough: Heads to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions waived Scarbrough on Saturday.

Scarbrough didn't suit up a game for the Lions this season, 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.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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 when active, Scarbrough figures to play a minimal offensive role while Adrian Peterson, D'Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson remain healthy.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Moves off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarbrough (undisclosed) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

It's unclear why Scarbrough has not played up until this point, but in any case he'll join 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 aforementioned trio remains healthy.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Goes to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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 Ty Johnson also is available in Detroit's backfield.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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 the depth chart if other players have made an impression on the coaching staff.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: No roster lock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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 skill set may prove less worthy of a roster spot compared to more versatile options like Jason Huntley or Ty Johnson.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Nine carries in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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 once again was 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.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Secondary back upon Johnson return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The 23-year-old back out of Alabama returned to the lineup after missing Week 15 with a rib 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.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Available Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Declared questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarbrough (ribs) remained limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Denver.

It isn't clear if Scarbrough will return to the lineup after missing Week 15, and there's no assurance of a sizable workload even if he's declared active before the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. The Lions seemingly plan to activate Kerryon Johnson (knee) from injured reserve, which would leave Scarbrough with a limited role. Plus, the Lions still have Ty Johnson, J.D. McKissic and Wes Hills on their 53-man roster... at least for the time being.

December 19, 2019 04:20 PM
Lions' Bo Scarbrough: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scarbrough (ribs) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Michael Rothstein of reports.

After receiving the same listing on both injury reports this week, Scarbrough is a step ahead of last week, when he followed an LP/DNP/DNP practice regimen before sitting out Week 15 against the Buccaneers. If he gains clearance to play Sunday in Denver, he may have to contend with Kerryon Johnson (knee), who has been designated for return from IR and hasn't suffered a setback in his recovery from surgery to repair a torn meniscus.
