Scarbrough a game-time decision | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Lions RB Bo Scarbrough (ribs) will be a game-time decision today against the Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Detroit promoted RB Wes Hills from the practice squad Saturday, so there's legitimate concern for Scarbrough's status. Combine that with a matchup vs. the league's top run D, and we sure hope you don't need to rely on Scarbrough today.

Lions RB Bo Scarbrough (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Bucs. That leaves Detroit with RBs Ty Johnson, J.D. McKissic and practice squad call-up Wes Hills. Try to avoid the situation vs. Tampa’s 3rd-ranked RB defense.

Lions RB Bo Scarbrough (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bucs. He was limited on Wednesday but didn’t practice at all on Thursday or Friday, so he seems to be in real danger of missing this one. Scarbrough’s absence would leave Detroit with RBs Ty Johnson and J.D McKissic.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Cowboys have cut RB Bo Scarbrough. It's not a shocking development for a 7th-round pick, but it's noteworthy for the 228-pound former Alabama back with a 109.2 speed score. Scarbrough figures to at least land on a practice squad somewhere but doesn't merit any special dynasty consideration.

The Cowboys nabbed Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough in the 7th round. Scarbrough certainly checks the size and athleticism boxes. He goes 6’1, 228 pounds and earned an 86th percentile SPARQ score in the pre-draft process. He had an uneven career at ‘Bama, though, averaging 5.7 yards per carry but never topping 125 attempts or 812 yards in a season. He also comes with a lengthy injury history, including a broken leg in the 2016 National Championship and a pair of torn ACLs. Scarbrough is obviously stuck behind Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas. He’ll try to push Rod Smith for backup duties.
