Scarlett recovered a muffed punt return and scooped up a blocked punt in Sunday's win over the Bills.
Houston turned Scarlett's special team plays into its first 10 points of the game. Scarlett typically plays on defense only when injuries strike, but he's been a regular on special teams since signing with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford in 2016.
Scarlett (foot) is getting reps with the first-team defense while starter Jadeveon Clowney is being eased into drills, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Scarlett, who finished up 2017 on injured reserve due to a foot injury, is healthy again and working on moves to elude blockers. He started five of 11 games played last season and recorded 29 tackles with two sacks.
Scarlett (foot) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Texans' injury woes continued Monday when it was announced Scarlett was placed on injured reserve, effectively ending his 2017 season. Scarlett etched his way into the starting lineup when he filled in for the recently departed John Simon at outside linebacker during the offseason. It's unsure what kind of role Scarlett will have in Houston next year. The 24-year-old tallied 29 tackles across 11 games this season.
Scarlett (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Scarlett did not practice this week after injuring his foot in Monday's loss to the Ravens. There's no official timetable for his return at this point, so next week's practice reps, or lack thereof, may be the next indication of when he may be able to return.
Scarlett was sporting a walking boot in his foot Thursday and isn't expected to play Sunday against the Titans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Texans seem to be viewing Scarlett as week-to-week after he injured his foot in the Week 12 loss to the Ravens, so there's a decent chance he'll miss action beyond Sunday. Scarlett has been acting as the team's starting strong-side linebacker since Whitney Mercilus tore his pectoral muscle in October, but the increased snaps haven't translated to much useful IDP production. Scarlett has two sacks in 11 games this season and hasn't recorded more than six tackles in any contest.
