Scott (shoulder) signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Scott was set to be a restricted free agent this offseason, but he's agreed to another year in Carolina. The 27-year-old started four games last season. He's expected to take on a depth role once again in 2021.
Scott (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Will Bryan of the Panthers' official site reports.
Scott made four starts this year. His season is over after suffering a shoulder injury in this past Sunday's win over Washington. Scott will be a restricted free agent in March.
Scott was forced out of Sunday's game against the Football Team with a shoulder injury, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Scott started at tackle with Russell Okung (calf) out of the lineup. Michael Schofield is the next man up at the position.
The Panthers activated Scott (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.
Scott had to spend only a handful of days on the COVID-19 list as this transaction means he'll be eligible to suit up for Sunday's contest in New Orleans. The third-year pro stands to contribute in his usual role as a depth offensive tackle.
The Panthers placed Scott (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.
Scott has played a depth role in five of the Panther's last six games, but he'll now be forced to miss time as long as he's on the COVID-19 list. Carolina isn't allowed to disclose whether Scott's placement on the list means he's tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with someone who has.
The Panthers claimed Scott off waivers from the Chargers Sunday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Scott started nine games for the Chargers last season but, surprisingly, failed to make the final roster. Expect the third-year pro to be the primary backup to Taylor Moton at right tackle.
Scott was tendered as an exclusive rights free agent by the Chargers.
Scott joined the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He has appeared in 25 games with 10 starts, nine of them coming in 2019. The Chargers also agreed to terms with veteran Bryan Bulaga on Tuesday, so it remains to be seen what Scott's role will be in 2020.
Scott was promoted to the Chargers' 53-man roster Saturday.
Scott's place on the active roster comes with Joe Barksdale (knee) already declared out for Sunday's game against the Bills. Expect Scott to serve as a depth offensive lineman in Week 2, and until Barksdale returns to the field.
