A couple weeks ago, Bo Scarbrough saw his Detroit Lions career come to a quiet ending. The running back was placed on injured reserve in September due to a leg injury when the team signed Adrian Peterson. After working his way back from IR to practices in October, Scarbrough lasted just a week on Detroit’s active roster before the Lions outright released him. For the only game he was eligible to play in—Week 7 against the Falcons—he was one of six players on the Lions’ inactive list.

But Scarbrough may get another shot in the NFL this year. On Wednesday, the Seattle Seahawks signed Scarbrough to their practice squad, and he could get a real shot at playing there. The Seahawks are dealing with a ton of injuries and both Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde missed last week’s game for Seattle. Last week against the Bills, the Seahawks relied on DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer in the running game, and they combined for just 47 yards on 13 carries.

We wish Scarbrough the best in Seattle and hope his career still has some juice in it.
