Bengals release Bernard Scott from reserve/PUP

One thing that was clear last night is that the Bengals have sufficiently bolstered their running game with the addition of Giovani Bernard.

Now, they no longer need to wait for Bernard Scott. The team announced Scott had been released from the reserve/physically unable to perform list, making him a free agent.

Scott had rehabbed last year’s torn ACL, which along with other injuries limited him to two games in 2012.

He has shown enough as a return man and in spot duty that he should be able to find work elsewhere if he’s well.

    Suddenly, the next #1 RB for the Steelers emerges from the NFL’s “scrap heap”.

    It’s a shame that Scott was never able to really stay healthy enough to get going with the Bengals. Hopefully he’ll be able to catch on with another team and become a big contributor.

    Appears they believe the RB situation is solved with Gio. Next they need to decide whether or not Dalton has hit his ceiling. All the other pieces are in place.

    It’s funny how many Bungles fans still think their lousy franchise can win a Super Bowl. Sad:(

    quizguy66 — it’s not really a big loss. The guy was a 6th round pick. Never really as explosive as I heard he would be coming out of college.

    relggigeht — most of don’t do that far. Just revelling in being better than Pitt for a change!

    Scott will always have a warm place in this Bengal fans heart.

    That game breaking 96 yard ko return for a TD at Heinz field in ’09 was memorable.

    Good luck Bernard wherever you end up.

    I always liked Scott. It’s a shame he was always injured. I think he could have been a real good RB if he could have stated healthy, and got the playing time.
