Scott exited Thursday's preseason finale against the 49ers after suffering an ankle injury, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Scott sustained the injury on a kickoff return and needed help to get off the field. The 23-year-old was designated questionable to return but the severity of the issue remains unknown.
Scott will get an opportunity to compete for the starting returner job, reports Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.
Scott spent all of last season on the practice squad, but reportedly has impressed during OTAs. Given the loss of TE Hunter Henry (ACL), the Chargers may want to utilize last season's primary returner, Travis Benjamin, more on offense which could open the door for Scott to earn a spot on the final 53-man roster.
Scott went undrafted out of Clemson during the 2017 Draft. He subsequently signed with the Chargers before ultimately being waived prior to Week 1. After a season on their practice squad, he will look to earn himself a role on the 53-man roster in 2018.
