Scott spent the past four years with the Bengals, mainly in a backup role. He got his most playing time in 2011, rushing for 380 yards on 112 carries. Scott tore his ACL last season and played only two games. His role was further reduced when the Bengals drafted Giovani Bernard in the second round and he missed all of training camp and preseason.
The Bengals now have Bernard, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead on the depth chart. Green-Ellis and Bernard have been splitting carries, while Peerman is dealing with a foot injury. Bernard could be in line for more touches after stealing the show on Monday night, scoring two touchdowns and helping the Bengals defeat the Steelers, 20-10.
