Scott went undrafted out of Clemson in 2017, spending his rookie season on the Chargers' practice squad and his sophomore campaign on injured reserve. He made a decent case for a spot on the 53-man roster before injuring his ankle in the final week of the 2018 preseason, but the Chargers probably weren't too upset about stashing him on IR. The 24-year-old slot receiver should be healthy before the start of the offseason program if he isn't already, and he'll have an easier path to a roster spot if Tyrell WIlliams and Travis Benjamin aren't still around in Los Angeles.
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.
