Former Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Scott signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League Tuesday, March 3.

Footballguys view: Scott had plenty of speed, but problems staying healthy plagued his time with the Bengals in the NFL. We'll see if he can stay healthy and produce in Canada.

  Ravens | Bernard Scott not expected back    Thu Feb 20, 10:27 PM

The Baltimore Ravens are not expected to re-sign impending free-agent RB Bernard Scott this offseason. The team likely will look to improve their No. 3 running back role in either free agency or the draft.

Footballguys view: Scott has speed, but he lacks durability. He may find it difficult to latch on with another team after failing to impress with the Bengals and the Ravens.

The Baltimore Ravens have declared RB Bernard Scott, WR Brandon Stokley, DL Haloti Ngata, LB John Simon, WR Marlon Brown, FS Omar Brown, OL Ryan Jensen inactive for Week 11.

Footballguys view: The Raiders could consider adding a player like Scott to help their depth at the RB position. Darren McFadden is banged up (hamstring) and his availability for Week 5 is up in the air.

  Bengals | Bernard Scott waived    Tue Sep 17, 11:50 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals waived RB Bernard Scott (knee) was waived. He was on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Scott had speed and upside as a homerun threat when he came out of Abilene Christian years ago. Injuries and inconsistencies have plagued his entire career. The Bengals will move forward with Giovani Bernard, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and Cedric Peerman in the backfield.

  Bengals | Bernard Scott may start season on PUP list    Thu Aug 8, 03:36 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Bernard Scott (knee) started training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list and there is a good chance he will remain on the list when the regular season begins. Scott is rehabbing from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: Scott has good speed but has lost his role on the Bengals because they selected Giovani Bernard in the 2013 NFL draft. If put on the PUP list Scott would be forced out of action for the first six weeks of the regular season.

  Bengals | Bernard Scott could start camp on PUP list    Wed Jul 10, 02:47 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Bernard Scott (knee) could start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list because he is coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: The team had a big vision in mind for Scott last year before he got hurt. Now that has changed as they added RB Gio Bernard (North Carolina) in the second-round of the 2013 NFL draft. Bernard is fast, instinctive, and a threat to score every time he touches the ball. He could win the starting job and receive a bulk of the work in the Bengals backfield this season.

  Bengals | Running back chatter    Mon May 6, 08:11 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis is expected to see the most carries this season. It would also be a surprise if both RBs Bernard Scott and Giovani Bernard made the team.

Footballguys view: If it comes down to one player then the veteran Scott may be the odd man out. Injuries and inconsistencies have held him back during his pro career, preventing him from playing up to his potential. The rookie Bernard is an explosive runner, younger, and could be the better option.

  Bengals | Bernard Scott terms    Tue Apr 16, 12:53 PM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals RB Bernard Scott received a one-year deal with a $715,000 base salary and a cap number of $791,250.

Footballguys view: If Scott stays healthy then he will be the big play change of pace RB the Bengals were looking for. He's the primary backup behind BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

  Bengals | Re-sign Bernard Scott    Fri Apr 12, 03:23 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals re-signed RB Bernard Scott Friday, April 12 to a one-year deal. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Scott might not be healthy to begin the season as he recovers from an ACL tear, and if the team drafts a running back early, he might not be more than depth this year.

The Cincinnati Bengals will meet with free-agent RB Bernard Scott (Bengals) this week.

  Raiders | Bernard Scott to visit     Wed Apr 10, 09:51 AM

Free-agent RB Bernard Scott (Bengals) will meet with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, April 10. Scott will go through drills to reveal how his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last season has progressed.

Footballguys view: The Raiders lost Mike Goodson to the Jets in free agency and are looking for depth behind starter Darren McFadden. Scott is about six months removed from his ACL injury and could give the team veteran depth at the position.

  Bengals | Two RBs might be left to walk    Tue Feb 12, 09:04 PM

Impending free-agent RB Bernard Scott (Bengals) is unlikely to return to the Cincinnati Bengals unless his deal is of the one-year variety. Impending free-agent RB Brian Leonard (Bengals) has been solid, but the unrestricted free agent is viewed as more of a niche player. The team is looking to upgrade the position.

  Bengals | Bernard Scott placed on IR    Mon Oct 8, 12:03 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals announced Monday, Oct. 8, that RB Bernard Scott (knee) has been placed on Injured Reserve. Scott suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Scott just hasn't been able to stay healthy and play up to his potential as a pro. Without him in the lineup we could see more from FB Brian Leonard or RB Cedric Peerman. The Bengals could look to street free agents to help fill the hole on their roster.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Bernard Scott (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 4.

Footballguys view: A good sign for Scott here, but most fantasy owners have already let him go to the waiver wire. If fumble problems continue for Benjarvus Green-Ellis then perhaps the team could start using more of Scott. As of right now just keep his name on your waiver wire speed dial.

  Bengals | Bernard Scott expected to play in Week 3    Wed Sep 19, 10:13 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Bernard Scott (hand) is expected to make his regular season debut in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins. 'Last week was my first time actually doing football stuff again. The first couple days, I was kind of winded. But once I got back in a rhythm and the routine of things, I started feeling like I was back in shape,' Scott said. When he is able to play, Scott is expected to wear a specially designed pad to protect his hand.

Footballguys view: Scott could do a few things as a change of pace runner, but the Bengals will continue to use Benjarvus Green-Ellis as their battering ram.

Footballguys view: Dunlap should be back soon. He was injured in the preseason opener and originally expected to miss four weeks. Scott's hand injury wasn't considered serious a couple of weeks ago, but it's serious enough for him to miss the first game.
