Matt Scott plays his guts out for the Bengals (twice)

Quarterback Matt Scott is still a longshot to make the Bengals roster, but at least he’s leaving it all on the field in the preseason.

Via SB Nation, Scott threw up on the field twice last night, but also threw two touchdown passes and converted a two-point conversion. (Click this link only if you want to the video that might spoil your breakfast).

Scott would likely have to replace sore-armed draft pick A.J. McCarron for a roster spot with the Bengals, but he performed well, completing 7-of-11 passes for 66 yards and two scores, while rushing six times for 68 yards.

Scott missed games because of concussions in college at Arizona, and had a few issues of barfing on the field there. The hope is that he’s well, and didn’t take another shot to the head which caused the latest sickness.

Otherwise, he’s gross, but effective.

    AWESOME. 63% completion rate, 2 TDs, 68 yds rushing and barfed twice. Thats a hell of a night.

    The kid balled out yesterday. Looked better than Campbell. I know Campbell is a career backup but I expected better from him. He looked god awful. Hope Scott is ok and didn’t suffere another knock on the head. Could spell the end of his career if it’s that bad.

    Campbell made a great case last night for becoming the Bengals 3rd String QB.

    And Andy Dalton threw a bomb to AJ Green in his only series. Take that Dalton haters.

    When the Jags cut Scott to keep Jordan Palmer I wanted an explanation :). This kid can play football.

    Dalton is very good with no pressure. In the face of pressure, he melts down. Repeatedly.

    A great perfomance against 3rd stringers.

    Thank goodness we all didn’t have to bear witness to the ugly chain reaction of vomit that could have ensued. It would have looked like a bad Monty Python skit.

    Never heard of this guy….will definitely be watching him in the future.

    Being nervous can be good, because it means you care.

    Impressive performance for this kid last night, barfing notwithstanding. He looked poised and in control and played much better than Bray or Murray did for my Chiefs.

    If he doesn’t make the Bengals roster, my bet is he’s not out of work for long.

    played like shane falco. and the reason bray and murray didn’t do much was because KC was trying to close out a game. so they ran and ran and ran. had they actually handed off more to cyrus gray in the playoffs its another way they would have won.

    I like Scott’s game but the vomiting thing is pretty disconcerting given his history. Hopefully Rich Rod didn’t destroy his future.

    He’s better than any QB on your roster.

    Another McNabb.

    Throwing up is a symptom of severe brain trauma. No really. Google that.
