Well, that didn't take long. Just three days after joining the Bills' practice squad, Scott will move up to the 53-man roster thanks in part to the release of veteran wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes. The Bills clearly want to give their young crop of pass catchers an extended opportunity given their dismal record this season, but it's unlikely Scott will immediately jump to the top of a depth chart full of inexperienced options.
The Bills signed Scott to their practice squad Wednesday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.
Despite spending a fair amount of time on the Browns' 53-man roster this season, Scott didn't make a significant statistical contribution with the club before being cut over the weekend. He's now found a new home and will provide the Bills with some added depth at receiver after the team parted ways with veterans Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes on Tuesday.
Scott was waived by Cleveland on Saturday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Scott was waived in order to make room for offensive guard Kyle Kalis. The Browns needed depth on the offensive line with Austin Corbett (foot) unable to play and J.C. Tretter (ankle) listed as questionable. If Scott clears waivers, he could find his way back to Cleveland, but his NFL debut still seems a ways off.
Scott has yet to make his NFL debut. The Fresno State product was listed as questionable for the Browns' Week 10 matchup against the Falcons but was ultimately ruled out. Now that Scott has had the bye week to recover and his name doesn't appear on the team's injury report, it appears that Scott is healthy and ready to play.
