Giants waived/injured RB Da'Rel Scott.
Scott suffered a serious hamstring injury in last Thursday's loss to the Bears. He'll revert to injured reserve if/when he clears waivers. The Giants are expected to sign a veteran back on Wednesday to take Scott's roster spot. Given major snaps this season, Scott responded by managing just 73 yards on 20 carries. Brandon Jacobs is locked in as the Giants' lead back until David Wilson (neck) returns. Tue, Oct 15, 2013 04:06:00 PM

Date:

A source tells the Daily News that Da'Rel Scott (hamstring) could be out through the Week 9 bye.

By the time Week 10 comes around, the Giants could have both David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) back in the fold. Scott will likely find himself back on the street once he's medically cleared.

Da'Rel Scott (hamstring) is expected to miss a "few weeks."

Scott strained his right hamstring late in Thursday night's loss to the Bears. With David Wilson's (neck) status for Week 7 also in question, Brandon Jacobs and Michael Cox are the only healthy running backs on the roster.

Da'Rel Scott rushed just four times for 17 yards in New York's Week 6 loss to the Bears, and departed late with a right leg injury.

He caught one pass for four yards. We'd imagine Scott was ticketed for a bigger role, but the Giants went with a one-man committee after Brandon Jacobs got off to a hot start, and largely stayed hot. Scott broke loose for a 13-yard run with the Giants rallying late in the fourth quarter, but blew a tire. He couldn't put any weight on his right leg as he was helped off the field. Scott also slipped on at least one other carry. Scott's Week 7 FLEX prospects are not bright.

Giants re-signed RB Da'Rel Scott.

With David Wilson (neck) banged up, Scott is coming back as insurance. Wilson sat out of practice Monday and isn't expected to play Thursday night against the Bears. On a short week, the Giants needed someone who is familiar with the system. Look for Scott and Brandon Jacobs to form a committee in Week 6.

Giants waived RB Da'Rel Scott.

It's a surprising move, and a vote of confidence in shaky starter David Wilson. It's a sign the Giants are ready to start using Wilson in more passing situations. It leaves the G-Men with just used-up veteran Brandon Jacobs and practice-squad type Michael Cox behind Wilson. Scott rushed five times for 26 yards against the Chiefs on Sunday, but was averaging only 3.5 yards per carry. That number slumps to 3.0 for his career.

Da'Rel Scott rushed five times for 26 yards and caught one pass for no yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.

Scott continues to play in all passing situations -- including third downs and four-minute drill. And he continues to hurt his team. Scott had a bad drop on a screen in this one and has no juice in the run game. With David Wilson gaining more and more trust, Scott's role should dwindle even further.

Giants RB Da'Rel Scott rushed once for five yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Carolina.

The Giants are using Scott strictly as a passing-down back, which isn't going to translate to fantasy value. He also has a limited skill set as a runner. Leave Scott quarantined to the waiver wire in 12-team leagues.

Da'Rel Scott rushed for two yards on five carries and caught two passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

Scott had a knee scare earlier in the week. It didn't seem to affect him on Sunday. None of the three Giants' running backs could get anything going on the ground. Scott scored his touchdown deep into the fourth quarter in garbage time. He took a dump-off from Eli Manning and sprung into the end zone from 23 yards out. Scott isn't worth a roster spot in any re-draft formats.
Sun, Sep 15, 2013 09:21:00 PM

Giants RB Da'Rel Scott (knee) is listed as probable for Week 2.

He practiced fully Friday. Scott is tentatively expected to receive the nominal "start" against Denver, but David Wilson should end up with more snaps and touches. We wouldn't even bother rostering Scott in fantasy leagues.
Fri, Sep 13, 2013 01:49:00 PM

Speaking Thursday, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said RB Da'Rel Scott (knee) is "fine."

Scott was upgraded to "full" for Thursday's practice. His Wednesday injury was just a tweak. Scott will be active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, but he's still not a recommended fantasy option despite David Wilson's ball-security woes.
Thu, Sep 12, 2013 01:53:00 PM

The New York Daily News hears Da'Rel Scott (knee) still has a chance to play in Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Scott went down in Wednesday's practice, but the MRI results came back clean. He even has a chance to participate in Thursday's workout. Regardless, Scott will quickly revert to third on the depth chart if David Wilson can hang onto the ball and newly acquired Brandon Jacobs proves reliable on passing downs.
Thu, Sep 12, 2013 10:34:00 AM

Updating a previous item, Da'Rel Scott's (knee) MRI showed no structural damage.

Scott injured his knee in Wednesday's practice, causing him to put in a limited session. The Giants will monitor Scott's knee for any swelling, and he'll likely undergo further testing later this week.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 04:38:00 PM

Giants RB Da'Rel Scott injured his knee in Wednesday's practice.

The severity is unknown. Scott went for further testing after practice, and the Giants are expected to make an announcement this afternoon. Scott was officially "limited" in Wednesday's session. Stay tuned for an update.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 02:50:00 PM

ESPN New York believes the Giants' interest in veteran running backs is about getting a better backup than Da'Rel Scott.

The Giants had a running back workout scheduled even before David Wilson's Sunday Night Football meltdown. That's because they wanted a replacement for Andre Brown (leg) without having to guarantee a contract for the whole year. Fantasy owners that add Scott this week are going to end up disappointed -- he might not even retain the backup gig for very long.
