The Detroit Lions announced today that they have signed RB Bo Scarbrough to the active roster from the practice squad and released RB Paul Perkins. Additional contract terms were not disclosed.
In addition, the Lions announced that they have signed P Matt Wile to the practice squad.
Scarbrough joined the Lions last week after spending the 2019 preseason with the Seattle Seahawks.

Wile most recently appeared in two games for the Atlanta Falcons earlier this season, punting six times for 290 yards (48.3 avg., 44.7 net). Originally signing with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Michigan in 2016, he has appeared in 22 career games for the Falcons, Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals, recording 90 punts for 4,098 yards (45.5 avg., 41.4 net).
