  • Bengals' Nick Scott: Finishes 2023 in depth role

    Scott racked up 57 tackles (35 solo) and one fumble recovery across 17 regular-season appearances with the Bengals in 2023. Scott began the first season of his three-year contract with Cincinnati in a starting role, but by Week 11 he was clearly replaced by 2023 third-round pick Jordan Battle at strong safety. The Bengals have a potential 'out' in Scott's contract for only $2 million in dead money this offseason, so it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up having to search for a role elsewhere.

  • Bengals' Nick Scott: Getting looked at

    Scott is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Ravens. Scott could return to the game if he gets the all clear, but if he did indeed suffer a concussion, he'll of course not be able to get back on the field. While he's sidelined, Jordan Battle should handle the strong safety position.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Logs limited practice Thursday

    Scott (shoulder) logged a limited practice Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Scott managed to practice fully Wednesday but was unable to Thursday as his shoulder injury continued to limit him. If the safety is able to log a full practice again Friday, he should be able to suit up against the Seahawks on Sunday. Expect Quentin Lake to start in relief of Scott if he's unavailable.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Logs first pick of the season

    Scott recorded two tackles (one solo) and an interception in Sunday's 24-10 win against the Panthers. Any fleeting hope of a comeback by the Panthers was ended by the talented safety, as a P.J. Walker pass was deflected by Ernest Jones and caught by a diving Scott in the end zone to seal the victory for the Rams. In just six games, Scott has nearly matched his snap count from a full 17-game slate in 2021, and he should continue to get plenty of opportunities to produce alongside Taylor Rapp with Jordan Fuller (hamstring) out until mid-November.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Breaks thumb

    Scott suffered a broken thumb in the Rams' win over the Ravens on Sunday according to head coach Sean McVay, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports. Scott could still play this week against the 49ers, as McVay added that the safety will undergo surgery Monday and could play in a cast, according to Jackson's report. If Scott can't go Sunday, Antoine Brooks may see extra opportunity in a depth role at safety.
