Scott has been promoted to the Eagles' active roster ahead of the team's Week 6 clash with the Vikings.
The team placed fellow running back Corey Clement (shoulder) on injured reserve to create the roster spot. With Darren Sproles battling a quadriceps injury, Scott will slot in as Philadelphia's No. 3 running back behind Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders.
Scott went unclaimed on waivers and plans to sign with Philadelphia's practice squad, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Scott shined in the Eagles' second preseason game, rushing seven times for 43 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately for the 24-year-old, the Eagles have good depth in their backfield and decided to waive him, but he'll at least stick around in Philadelphia.
The Eagles waived Scott on Saturday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
The Eagles are deep at running back, which meant Scott was really going to have to stand out on special teams for any chance at landing on their 53-man roster. He was ultimately unable to make enough of an impression and must now look for a new opportunity.
Scott (ankle) rushed seven times for 43 yards and one touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Jaguars.
Scott was held out of the preseason opener with an ankle injury, but he was ready to go for the second week of the preseason. The 24-year-old is coming off a rookie season in which he didn't play an offensive snap in two games, and he's facing tough odds to make the 53-man roster given the quality of backs already in the backfield.
Scott (ankle) won't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Titans, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Scott has been dealing with an ankle injury this week, so he would be out there Thursday if he was healthy. This isn't a great sign for the Louisiana Tech product, considering the team signed Darren Sproles this offseason, and the depth chart is littered with quality backs. It's likely that youngsters Miles Sanders and Donnel Pumphrey get most of the run in the offense for Thursday's game.
Scott is considered day-to-day with an ankle injury, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Scott saw his chances at making the 53-man roster take a dive after the Eagles re-signed Darren Sproles in late July, and a significant absence during training camp would further weaken those odds. The 24-year-old appears to have avoided that situation, but he may still be questionable for Thursday's preseason opener against the Titans.
Scott is likely ticketed for the practice squad now that the Eagles have re-signed Darren Sproles, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Per coach Doug Pederson's own words in June, Scott had seized hold of the 'Darren Sproles' role after a fantastic spring. That was until the real Darren Sproles decided to come back, making a similarly diminutive back like Scott redundant. The 24-year-old will now likely have to depend on injury in order to see the playing field in the regular season.
Coach Doug Pederson compared Scott to Darren Sproles, Bo Wulf of The Athletic reports. "[Scott]'s a guy that can kind of fill a Darren Sproles (role)," Pederson said. "He's in that same body type and same quickness. We're working him in a couple of different situations as a runner, as a punt returner and just kind of getting a feel for him."
Selected by New Orleans in the sixth round of the 2018 draft, Scott is listed at 5-foot-6, 203 pounds. He spent most of his rookie year on the Saints practice squad until the Eagles poached him in December. While the comparison makes sense in terms of size, Scott faces an uphill battle to earn the kind of role Sproles occupied the past few seasons. Fellow Eagles running backs Corey Clement (knee) and Wendell Smallwood have proven capable of handling passing downs, while Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders (hamstring) already appear locked into roster spots. Scott still warrants watching throughout the summer, particularly if Clement and Sanders struggle to get healthy.
Scott returned four kicks for 96 yards in two games with the Eagles in 2018.
Scott spent the first three-plus months of the season on the Saints' practice squad before signing with the Eagles in early December. The 23-year-old was also active for both playoff games, playing three offensive snaps. Scott is under contract for next season and is likely to be fighting for a depth role come training camp.
Scott (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Rams, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Scott joined the team prior to Week 14 following Corey Clement's knee injury, but the rookie will have to wait at least another week to make his debut. The Eagles will roll with Josh Adams, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood at running back.
The Eagles will sign Scott off the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Scott, a sixth-round rookie out of Louisiana Tech, will add some depth to the Philadelphia backfield in light of Corey Clement's knee injury. It's likely that most of Scott's initial opportunities with the Eagles will come on special teams, but there's a small chance he can squeeze in work with the offense as the season winds down.
Scott has signed with the Saints' practice squad Thursday after being waived by the team, Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
New Orleans' addition of Mike Gillislee made Scott an odd man out on the team's depth chart, and after Scott was not picked up by another organization, he'll join the team's practice squad. At 5-foot-6, 203-pounds Scott could conceivably earn a role on special teams in the future, and even contribute as a returner.
The Saints waived Scott on Wednesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
After Jonathan Williams was jettisoned during roster cuts, Scott was left as the sole running back behind Alvin Kamara as the Saints prepared to proceed without Mark Ingram (suspension) for the first four games of the season. On Sunday, however, the team inked Mike Gillislee to a deal, then listed him as the No. 2 back on its initial depth chart. With the writing on the wall for little to no touches, Scott has now been subjected to waivers with the hope he won't be plucked by another organization. If the preceding comes to pass, he'll land on the Saints' practice squad.
Scott was listed as the Saints' No. 3 running back on the team's first regular-season depth chart, reports Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
With the surprising release of Jonathan Williams, Scott seemed poised for a key early-season role with Mark Ingram suspended for the first four games of the year. On Tuesday, however, Mike Gillslee, who signed with the Saints just a few days ago after being released by New England, was named the No. 2 running back behind Alvin Kamara. While both Scott and Gillislee should see work, Gillslee appears to have first crack to carve out a role during Ingram's suspension. Meanwhile, the 5-foot-6, 203-pound Scott could serve as a change-of-pace option and contribute as a returner.
Scott is poised for a key role early in the season after the Saints cut Jonathan Williams on Saturday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.
The Saints presumably will scour the waiver wire for backfield depth after cutting Williams loose and placing Shane Vereen (undisclosed) on injured reserve. Even if the team does add some help, Scott figures to serve as Alvin Kamara's primary backup until Ingram returns in Week 5. The role could come with a considerable number of touches, given that coach Sean Payton has been clear about his desire to avoid overworking Kamara. Scott made a strong impression during the preseason with 25 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown, though he only caught three passes for 18 yards. The sixth-round rookie out of Louisiana Tech will line up behind a strong offensive line while facing defenses that are worried about Drew Brees, Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn.
Scott took 12 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown and caught one of three targets for three yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Rams.
The rookie sixth-round pick was otherwise quiet this preseason, gaining 53 yards on 13 carries and and 15 yards on two catches prior to Thursday's explosion. Scott even got the starting nod over Jonathan Williams, who finished with 16 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown, along with one catch for seven yards on his lone target. Williams previously seemed like the obvious choice to replace Mark Ingram (suspension) early in the season, but ESPN.com's Mike Triplett now believes Scott could also have a role. Of course, Alvin Kamara figures to get most of the snaps and touches while Ingram opens the year with a four-game ban.
Scott took six carries for 28 yards but didn't draw any targets in Friday's preseason game against the Cardinals.
Jonathan Williams rotated in behind Mark Ingram throughout the first half, while Scott and Terrance West didn't get any work on offense until late in the game. Scott did pick up 87 yards on three kickoff returns and 13 yards on one punt return, making his case for a spot on the 53-man roster even if he doesn't have a significant role in the backfield.
Scott gained seven yards on his lone carry during Thursday's 24-20 win over the Jaguars in the preseason opener.
Scott's lone carry came late in the fourth quarter, as seven tailbacks got touches for the Saints. While he was buried in the pecking order, Scott at least went for a solid gain on his only opportunity, and he compiled 78 yards on his three kickoff returns.
Scott has impressed in training camp with his route-running ability, John Sigler of USA Today reports.
With Mark Ingram facing a four-game suspension to begin the season, Scott may be in line for an increased role early on behind Alvin Kamara. The sixth-rounder thus has the opportunity to carve out a modest degree of PPR utility out of the gate should he secure enough change-of-pace touches in the Saints offense (in tandem with veteran Shane Vereen) behind Kamara.
