The Seattle Seahawks have added depth to their running back core Tuesday afternoon.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Seahawks have signed running back Bo Scarbrough away from the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad.

Scarbrough was selected in the seventh round in the 2018 NFL draft by the Dallas Cowboys this past year. The Jaguars ended up acquiring his services after being let go from the Cowboys’ practice squad. He racked up 24 rushing attempts for 69 yards total and a touchdown in the preseason for the Cowboys

Scarbrough while attending the University of Alabama ran for 1,512 yards and 20 touchdowns over three seasons under head coach Nick Saban.

The Seattle Seahawks were without first-round pick upstart halfback Rashad Penny last weekend because of a knee injury. Head coach Pete Carroll of the Seahawks offered on Monday that “it’s not certain yet if he’s going to be able to turn it around” in time to be active against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16.

Carroll told the press:

“He’s got a pretty good knee injury. It’s going to be an issue.”

The Seattle Seahawks are currently 8-6 ranking 2nd in the NFL’s NFC West Divison under head coach Pete Carroll. They rank ninth in the NFL with scoring 25.9 points per game. However, they do give up 20.9 points per game which ranks seventh total in the NFL. They will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs this upcoming Sunday, December third in a battle that will affect playoff seeding. The Chiefs are 11-3 on the season and rank 3rd in the NFL’s AFC West Divison.
