Scott spent the first three-plus months of the season on the Saints' practice squad before signing with the Eagles in early December. The 23-year-old was also active for both playoff games, playing three offensive snaps. Scott is under contract for next season and is likely to be fighting for a depth role come training camp.
Scott (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Rams, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Scott joined the team prior to Week 14 following Corey Clement's knee injury, but the rookie will have to wait at least another week to make his debut. The Eagles will roll with Josh Adams, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood at running back.
Scott, a sixth-round rookie out of Louisiana Tech, will add some depth to the Philadelphia backfield in light of Corey Clement's knee injury. It's likely that most of Scott's initial opportunities with the Eagles will come on special teams, but there's a small chance he can squeeze in work with the offense as the season winds down.
Scott has signed with the Saints' practice squad Thursday after being waived by the team, Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
New Orleans' addition of Mike Gillislee made Scott an odd man out on the team's depth chart, and after Scott was not picked up by another organization, he'll join the team's practice squad. At 5-foot-6, 203-pounds Scott could conceivably earn a role on special teams in the future, and even contribute as a returner.
The Saints waived Scott on Wednesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
After Jonathan Williams was jettisoned during roster cuts, Scott was left as the sole running back behind Alvin Kamara as the Saints prepared to proceed without Mark Ingram (suspension) for the first four games of the season. On Sunday, however, the team inked Mike Gillislee to a deal, then listed him as the No. 2 back on its initial depth chart. With the writing on the wall for little to no touches, Scott has now been subjected to waivers with the hope he won't be plucked by another organization. If the preceding comes to pass, he'll land on the Saints' practice squad.
