Bernard Scott rushed for three yards on two carries and caught one pass for eight yards in Week 17 against the Bengals.

Scott got some work in the first half with Ray Rice standing on the sideline nursing a thigh injury. Scott appeared in two games for the Ravens this season, rushing for 14 yards on four attempts and catching two passes for ten yards. He'll be a free agent in March. Scott struggled to find work in 2013. We wouldn't expect that to change this offseason.

Ravens waived RB Bernard Scott.

The move clears a spot for Dennis Pitta's return to the active roster. Scott was signed in Week 8 after being released by the Bengals and has yet to appear in a game this season.

Ravens declared RB Bernard Scott, S Brynden Trawick, S Omar Brown, OL Ryan Jensen, WR Deonte Thompson, DE/OLB John Simon, and NT Brandon Williams inactive for Week 13 against Pittsburgh.

Haloti Ngata is all systems go for Thanksgiving night.

Ravens signed RB Bernard Scott.

Scott slides in as the No. 3 back as the Ravens come out of their bye. He's depth in case Bernard Pierce (hamstring) is limited or can't play against the Browns in Week 9. Ray Rice says he feels as good as he has all season right now.

Free agent RB Bernard Scott worked out for the Ravens.

Scott has been out of the league since the Bengals released him off the PUP list in mid-September. The Ravens were likely just kicking the tires to see where Scott is at as he continues to rehab from his ACL tear.

Free agent RB Bernard Scott worked out for the Raiders on Tuesday.

It's Scott's first action since being released by the Bengals two weeks ago. He opened the season on the reserve/PUP list as he recovered from ACL surgery but was dumped after two games. The Raiders were just taking a look-see.
Wed, Oct 2, 2013 07:22:00 PM

Bengals released RB Bernard Scott.

Scott opened the season on the reserve/PUP list and is still working his way back from ACL surgery. He appeared in just two games last year and was unlikely to be a contributor when he was eligible to return. The Bengals will move forward with Giovani Bernard, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and Cedric Peerman. Scott is now an unrestricted free agent.

Bengals placed RB Bernard Scott (ACL surgery) on reserve/PUP.

He'll be stashed as mid-season depth. The Bengals will enter the season with Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman behind Giovani Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Scott tore his ACL last October and has been slow to recover.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 03:11:00 PM

The Cincinnati Enquirer gives Bengals RB Bernard Scott (ACL surgery) a "good chance" of opening the season on reserve/PUP.

Scott has been slow to recover from a left ACL tear suffered last October. The Bengals could view him as an in-season insurance policy. Under the new PUP rules, teams can activate PUPed players in any timeframe between Weeks 7 and 15, based on when they resume practicing. Scott has not practiced in camp.

Bengals placed RB Bernard Scott (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Scott is still recovering from last fall's ACL tear. At one time a somewhat promising prospect, his roster chances decreased significantly when the Bengals drafted Gio Bernard in the second round. Scott's dynasty value is gone.
Wed, Jul 24, 2013 06:08:00 PM considers Bernard Scott (ACL) a candidate to begin training camp on the active/PUP list.

He should still be ready for Week 1. Scott tore his left ACL last October. The question is whether Scott will make the Bengals' 53-man roster. Cincy's selection of Giovani Bernard severely dented his chances. Either way, Scott would need several injuries to make a 2013 fantasy impact.
Wed, Jul 10, 2013 05:34:00 PM

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy "highly doubts" both Bernard Scott and Giovani Bernard will make the Bengals' 53-man roster.

In other words, Scott's roster spot is in jeopardy. Bernard obviously isn't going anywhere after being the first running back drafted last weekend. The Bengals re-signed Scott, 29, to a one-year deal last month. Cincinnati will likely keep four running backs: BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Bernard, special teams ace Cedric Peerman, and sixth-round pick Rex Burkhead.
Sun, May 5, 2013 05:38:00 PM

Bengals agreed to terms with RB Bernard Scott on a one-year, $715,000 contract.

Scott visited the Raiders, but left without a deal. He's returning to Cincy to push Cedric Peerman for change-of-pace duties behind BenJarvus Green-Ellis. The Bengals should not stop seeking backfield speed. Scott tore his left ACL last October, and Cincinnati needs more big-play ability at running back.
Fri, Apr 12, 2013 03:04:00 PM

Free agent RB Bernard Scott (knee) will meet with the Raiders Wednesday and Bengals later this week.

Now six months removed from his ACL tear, Scott is starting to get nibbles. He'll go through some drills in Oakland, hoping to prove he's on his way to 100 percent. The Raiders currently have only Jeremy Stewart and Marcel Reece behind starter Darren McFadden, while the Bengals have been forthright in their desire to add a speed element next to BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Scott ran a 4.44 forty at the 2009 Combine and has averaged 4.05 yards per carry in his career.
