Scarlett has received increased snaps over the last two weeks, including time at inside linebacker, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Zach Cunningham's knee injury created the opportunity for the special-teams standout to shift from outside to insider linebacker and play 64 snaps combined over the last two games. Scarlett recorded five tackles over that span and made his first career interception in the Week 11 win over the Redskins. Cunningham is questionable for the Week 12 game against the Titans, but an update on his status should come when Houston releases its first injury report Thursday. Scarlett's role will likely be tied to Cunningham's availability, or lack thereof.
