Seahawks Sign RB Bo Scarbrough To Practice Squad; Designate CB Neiko Thorpe To Return

Special teams captain Neiko Thorpe is scheduled to return to practice this week, and the Seahawks also added more depth at running back.


For the second week in a row, the Seahawks added running back depth by turning to a familiar face, signing Bo Scarbrough to their practice squad.

The Seahawks will also see cornerback Neiko Thorpe return to practice this week. Thorpe, Seattle's special teams captain, went on injured reserve on October with a hip injury.

Scarbrough, a 2018 seventh-round pick out of Alabama, finished his rookie season on Seattle's roster. Scarbrough appeared in six games for Detroit last season, starting five and rushing for 377 yards and one touchdown on 89 carries. With the Seahawks dealing with multiple injuries at the position, Scarbrough is the second running back added to the practice squad in as many weeks, joining 2016 Seahawks draft pick Alex Collins, who was elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's game in Buffalo.

The Seahawks had an open spot on the practice squad after releasing cornerback DeMarkus Acy on Monday.
