Scott was inactive for Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
The Ravens had five receivers active Sunday, but Scott was not among them. Baltimore's top three is fairly set with Marquise Brown, Willie Snead and Miles Boykin, and the likes of Chris Moore and Seth Roberts provide depth behind them. Scott did well for himself in making the 53-man roster, but he may continue to be a healthy scratch each week barring a change to Baltimore's receiving rotation.
Scott caught six of 10 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown during Thursday's 20-7 preseason win over Washington.
After turning some heads in training camp, Baltimore gave the statuesque sophomore an extended final audition Thursday in his pursuit of making the roster. He took full advantage, more than doubling every other Raven both in targets and yards and hauling in the game-leading touchdown in the second quarter, a 24-yard shot downfield from Trace McSorley. When you're getting down to WR5 or WR6, it comes down to how many of each position a team intends to carry and how things shake out in other areas of the roster. Scott made Baltimore's brass' decision more difficult Thursday.
Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that Scott is "right in the mix" at wide receiver.
The 2018 fourth-round pick was stashed on injured reserve with a hamstring issue for his entire rookie season. Scott came back healthy for the offseason program and now is off to a strong start at training camp. He's still on the roster bubble, but there's clear opportunity for advancement given the lack of proven talent toward the top of Baltimore's wideout depth chart.
Scott should have another chance to prove himself with the Ravens in 2019, Clifton Brown of the team's official website reports.
The 2018 fourth-round pick didn't make much noise throughout training camp and the preseason, eventually getting stashed on injured reserve after he suffered a hamstring injury in late August. Scott should be healthy for the start of the offseason program if he isn't already, but he won't have a guaranteed stash spot this time around. His 6-foot-5 frame is unique among Baltimore wideouts, though the team could look to add more size during the offseason.
Coach John Harbaugh said that Scott is dealing with a "significant" hamstring injury, freelance NFL writer Jeff Zrebiec reports.
The Ravens didn't elaborate much besides tabbing the injury as severe. Baltimore placed Scott on injured reserve early Monday.
Scott (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Baltimore found a way to retain the rookie fourth-round pick without using a roster spot on a player who didn't project for any kind of role this year. Scott reportedly struggled at practice throughout the offseason and into training camp, but he should be back in 2019 to compete for a spot with the team. Jordan Lasley, Tim White, Janarion Grant and Breshad Perriman are left to compete for what likely will be two roster spots.
Scott is having a quiet summer, putting him on the roster bubble despite his status as a rookie fourth-round pick, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic Baltimore reports.
Scott is in real danger of becoming the first fourth-round pick the Ravens have ever released before Week 1 of his rookie season. Fellow rookie Jordan Lasley, a fifth-round pick, has generated far more buzz throughout the offseason and into the preseason. With Michael Crabtree, John Brown, Willie Snead and Chris Moore all considered locks, the team has a slew of players battling for what likely will be two roster spots. Scott, Lasley, Breshad Perriman and Tim White are all legitimate candidates to make the team.
