Scott (ankle) was waived with an injury settlement by the Dolphins on Thursday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Scott reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers at roster cutdowns. The severity of the ankle issue remains unclear, but the 26-year-old is now free to sign elsewhere.
Scott (ankle) was waived/injured by the Dolphins on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Scott was battling for a depth receiver spot but was unable to carve out a role ahead of the likes of Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson. The ankle injury that had plagued Scott did him no favors this preseason, but there's a chance the 26-year-old can latch on elsewhere or revert to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
The Dolphins promoted Scott from their practice squad Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Scott will slot in fifth on the depth chart at wideout for the Dolphins in advance of Sunday's season finale against the Bills, replacing Leonte Carroo, who was placed on the reserve/Non-Football Injury list due to an undisclosed medical situation. Since going undrafted in 2016, Scott has appeared in three games with the Dolphins over the past two seasons, but has yet to record a catch in the NFL.
The Dolphins signed Scott to their practice squad Friday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Scott cleared waivers after being dropped from Miami's 53-man roster earlier in the week, so he'll stick around in the organization in the hopes of eventually receiving another promotion. The 25-year-old has made three appearances with the Dolphins over the past two seasons, but is still looking for his first NFL reception.
