When you bleed red blood cells form a scab?

Red Blood Cells (RBC) do not "form a scab", they are merely trapped in the scab during blood coagulation.

Clotting proteins than begin to condense and form the hard scab. Human RBC do not have DNA and therefore cannot act in response to external stimuli like a cut.
