Lions notes: Bo Scarbrough’s impressive game grows

Could he be the next hope at running back for Detroit?

Lions running backs are expendable, flash a few times and vanish into oblivion. That’s at least been the practice for a few seasons now. Pick a time and you’ll find the comments at Pride Of Detroit buzzing about Dwayne Washington, Tion Green, Zach Zenner or any other name you choose.

Bo Scarbrough was adequate during last Sunday’s tilt against the Cowboys, and with the season in the tank that’s enough to warrant interest. It’s a hard ask for Scarbrough to repeat his performance, but he’s got a shot against Washington and could continue to cement himself on a nonexistent depth chart.

To that wit, he leads the Thursday edition of Lions notes.
