Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough said that he has lost 15 pounds since breaking his leg against Clemson this past January.
"My body feels more clean. It feels more stable so I can move the way I want to move and I’m able to do some of the things I couldn’t do," Scarbrough said. He's down to about 227 pounds. Despite a slow start to the season -- the redshirt junior has rushed for just 142 yards and a touchdown in three games -- Scarbrough insists that he is on the level in terms of his health, saying, "I feel 100 percent and also I feel like my game has gotten better."

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough ran 12 times for 66 yards and a score in a 41-23 victory over Colorado State on Saturday.

Scarbrough outcarried fellow Crimson Tide running back Damien Harris 12 to 11 on the day. His long carry of the game was a 17-yarder, and he had a nine-yard touchdown in the middle of the third to give Alabama a 31-10 lead. It'll be interesting to see how many carries Scarbrough gets -- or doesn't -- when the Tide take on Vanderbilt next Saturday.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (illness) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Scarbrough did not practice over the weekend while he battled a stomach bug, but he returned on Tuesday without showing an ill-effect. He'll be suiting up for Alabama against Florida State come September 2 barring an unforeseen setback with his health.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough has missed the past two practices due to illness.

Rest easy, Tide fans, as Scarbrough's sitting over the weekend is not related to anything more than a touch of illness. Said HC Nick Saban, "We don’t think this is a serious illness or anything like that, but it is something that we didn’t think it would be good for him not to be in a position where he could be resting." Expect Scarbrough to get back at it in practice some time later this week.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (undisclosed) was not seen at practice during the team's open-media window on Friday.

Just what Scarbrough is dealing with or why he wasn't practicing is unknown at this juncture, but given his medical history, this is one worth monitoring. The 6-foot-2, 228-pounder was a limited participant in spring practice while he continued to rehab from the broken leg he suffered against Clemson in the National Championship Game back in January. He said at the beginning of preseason camp that that leg injury has fully healed.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (leg) said his leg is 100-percent healthy.

Scarbrough (6'2/228) was limited in spring practices while rehabbing the broken leg he suffered against Clemson in the National Championship Game in January. He's now healthy, but will face durability questions from the NFL after having suffered a pair of torn ACLs and two broken legs. "I mean, you can't avoid injury," Scarbrough said. "Whatever happens, happens." Scarbrough ran for 812 yards and 11 touchdowns in 13 games last season. Nearly half his rushing yards came in the final three games of the season. This fall, he leads a running back rotation that includes 1,000-yard rusher Damien Harris, the elusive Josh Jacobs, five-star recruit Najee Harris and four-star recruit Brian Robinson.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said that redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (leg) is expected to be a full participant in August camp.

Scarbrough (6'2/228) was limited in spring practice due to his continued rehab from the broken leg he suffered against Clemson in the National Championship Game in January. The injury-prone back is 100% recovered from that serious injury, now, and will look to lead the loaded Alabama ground attack for the coming season after rushing for 812 yards and 11 touchdowns in 13 games last season.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff wrote that "you just won't find a more dangerous backfield (trio) in the SEC" than that of Alabama sophomore QB Jalen Hurts, junior RB Damien Harris and redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough.

Aschoff passes along a juicy stat, noting that "[t]his trio combined for 2,806 rushing yards last year. That was more than 11 SEC teams had the entire 2016 season." And that trio of studs is not alone in the backfield -- Alabama's running back corp is positively teeming with depth. Returning backs B.J. Emmons and Joshua Jacobs should see their fair share of carries, too, with five-star true freshman Najee Harris also a threat to make an impact, as if Bama needed help on that front.

Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (leg), junior RB Damien Harris (foot) and sophomore RB B.J. Emmons (foot) have all been ruled out for Saturday's spring game.

No major surprises in those three absences-to-be. Harris is the most recent name to hit the ranks of the walking wounded, having sprained his foot during the first scrimmage of the spring. As for Scarbrough and Emmons, the former broke his leg against Clemson in the National Championship Game at the beginning of January while the latter has required two surgeries on his foot since November. Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that Scarbrough's absence is due mostly to the fact that he has yet to start taking contact. Thus the Tide are being reasonably cautious.

Alabama HC Nick Saban said that he does not feel an imperative to push redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (leg) into spring scrimmage.

"Our goal for Bo is by the end of spring, he's fully confident that he can do everything he needs to do. Whether he ever scrimmages is really not something that we're not that concerned about," Saban said. Scarbrough is rehabbing from the broken right leg he sustained against Clemson in January's National Championship Game. The 6-foot-2, 228-pounder rushed for 812 yards and 11 touchdowns over the course of 13 games played during the 2016 campaign.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough (leg) will be limited in spring practice.

No huge surprise there. Scarbrough broke a bone in his right leg during the National Championship Game against Clemson in January and is still healing up from that injury. With B.J. Emmons (foot) also expected to be limited this spring, Joshua Jacobs, Damien Harris and already-enrolled five-star frosh Najee Harris figure to split the bulk of reps with the first-team offense for the time being.
Mar 21 - 8:24 PM

Alabama HC Nick Saban confirmed that redshirt sophomore RB Bo Scarbrough suffered a broken bone in his lower right leg during Monday's National Championship Game loss to Clemson.

Scarbrough broke his leg while getting tackled on a run late in the third quarter of Monday's classic title bout. In a release from Alabama, HC Nick Saban said, "The injury is non-surgical and we anticipate he will make a full recovery." The 6-foot-2, 228-pound Scarbrough has already announced that he will be back with the Tide next season. He could have jumped for the draft if he had so wished. Scarbrough rushed for 812 yards (6.5 YPC) and 11 touchdowns in 13 games during the past campaign. Expect further updates on his recovery as the offseason unfolds, but barring a setback, it looks like he should be able to heal up naturally without issue.

Alabama redshirt sophomore RB Bo Scarbrough broke a bone in the lower part of his right leg against Clemson, according to Chris Low of ESPN.

No further details are available at this time, but after touching the ball 18 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns, Scarbrough was sidelined for the rest of the contest. It is no surprise that Alabama's rushing offense tapered off after that. Scarbrough is draft eligible, but he previously said he would return to Alabama for the 2017 season. He has dealt with a number of injuries throughout his career.

Alabama redshirt sophomore RB Bo Scarbrough (leg) rushed for 93 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's 35-31 loss to Clemson in the National Championship Game.

Scarbrough opened up where he left off against Washington on Monday, scoring on a bruising, graceful 25-yard run with several minutes gone by in the first quarter, then backing that up with a 37-yard scoring gallop early in the second quarter. With Jalen Hurts struggling to move the Tide through the air, the 6-foot-2, 228-pounder served as Bama's most effective offensive weapon into the third quarter. Then, it all came undone. Scarbrough got himself twisted on a run and was unable to return from what was deemed to be a right leg injury. Damien Harris and Joshua Jacobs would prove largely ineffective in his place. The severity of this injury is not yet known, but Scarbrough has already said that he will be returning to Alabama next season. Come 2017, he will be part of a loaded (and we mean loaded) backfield that will include Harris, Jacobs, B.J. Emmons and incoming five-star stud Najee Harris.

Alabama redshirt sophomore RB Bo Scarbrough is questionable to return to Monday's National Championship Game due to a lower right leg injury.

Scarbrough got his legs tangled under him while picking up a short gain late in the third quarter. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but is questionable for the remainder of the contest. Damien Harris figures to see the bulk of carries in Scarbrough's place. Alabama holds a 24-21 advantage over Clemson early in the fourth quarter.
