Bernard Scott Injury Update: Probable, But Little Fantasy Value

Bernard Scott is probable for Week 3 against the Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Bernard Scott (hand) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Scott sat out the first two games recovering from a hand injury, but he got a full week of practice and should be ready to make his season debut this week.

Fantasy Impact: Not much. BenJarvus Green-Ellis is entrenched as the workhorse back right now, and the Bengals will probably limit Scott's snaps to ease him back into game action. Scott may have some value as a change-of-pace back down the line, but for now he's only useful as an injury handcuff to Green-Ellis. I wouldn't rush to grab him off the waiver wire yet.
