The Giants did not immediately announce a replacement on the roster.
Scott hurt his hamstring in the fourth quarter of Thursday's loss to the Bears. He finished the contest with four carries for 17 yards.
Scott actually made a start Week 4 before getting released. He was then added back to the roster after David Wilson suffered an injury.
Scott could miss three or more weeks and the Giants only healthy RBs right now are Brandon Jacobs and rookie Michael Cox.
Scott rushed for 17 yards on four carries, and he suffered the injury on his longest, a 13-yard scamper in the fourth quarter. After the game, head coach Tom Coughlin told reporters Scott was diagnosed with a hamstring injury.
If David Wilson remains sidelined by a neck injury, Scott is likely to remain the team's primary backup in Week 7 against the Vikings, assuming this injury does not linger.
Scott enters the game with just 81 yards on 27 carries in his career, and will likely be the team's backup for the game. In a likely shared role, Scott is likely to have just limited success against the Bears, likely as a pass-catcher on third downs.
Scott has 98 yards on 10 catches on the season, and has scored his lone touchdown on a reception. The Bears allow 6.8 receptions for 53.4 yards per game against opposing backs, and allowed two touchdowns out of the backfield over the last two games.
As a bye week or injury replacement, Scott might be worth using as a low-end flex Fantasy option for Thursday.
Scott caught 10 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown and averaged 3.5 yards per carry in the first four games before being cut. The Giants re-signed him due to David Wilson's neck injury.
Trattou made three tackles in five games.
