Bernard Scott is active for Sunday's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Washington Redskins. Scott has sat out the Bengals' first two games of the season with a hand injury. The running back was a full participant in practice throughout the past week.
Fantasy Impact: BenJarvus Green-Ellis is still the clear starter in Cincinnati's backfield, but Scott should relieve him for a few carries. Scott isn't a viable fantasy option in standard leagues, but he may chip a bit off of Green-Elllis' fantasy prospects. Keep an eye on how Scott is deployed this week, though he isn't expected to be much more than a third-down back.
