Scruggs (knee) was placed on IR Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scruggs signed with the Patriots two weeks ago and appeared in their last two games prior to injuring his knee. It remains unclear what the specifics of his knee injury are but he'll now have more than enough time to recover. As the last tight end option on the team, his absence won't impact the offense greatly.

Scruggs (chest) had one pass target, but failed to record a reception Thursday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Although he's now healthy enough to play, Scruggs could be on the roster bubble as the team trims its roster to 53 players. He currently is near the bottom of the depth chart at tight end.

Scruggs will not play in Thursday's preseason opener due to a bruised lung, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

It is unclear when Scruggs sustained this injury, but it is severe enough to keep him out of action in the preseason opener. The 25-year-old tight end currently projects as the fourth tight end on the Bears depth chart, so he is competing for a roster spot.

Seahawks placed DE Greg Scruggs on the reserve/PUP list.

Scruggs tore his right ACL before April's draft and is unlikely to play this season, although the Seahawks apparently believe he could help very late in the year. Scruggs played well as a rookie in 2012, recording a pair of sacks.

Seahawks DE Greg Scruggs suffered a torn ACL before the draft and could miss the entire season.

Scruggs, a 2012 seventh-round pick, played 257 defensive snaps as a rookie and registered six tackles and two sacks. It's a tough break for Scruggs, but the team is loaded up front and should be able to absorb the hit.
