RB Scott on Crutches; Not Sure if He Can Go Sunday

The Bengals official website reports that it looks as if RB Bernard Scott is going to be a tough go for Sunday’s game vs the Lions:

Rookie running back Bernard Scott is hobbled enough on crutches and in a boot with his turf toe that Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis says he’ll have a new kick returner if Scott can’t go. It looks grim just looking at him and Scott said he thinks he can play but he’s not sure the trainers are going to let him. Yet Lewis won’t rule him out.

“I think I can play, but I don’t think they’re going to let me play,” Scott said before Wednesday’s practice. “I guess we’ll see. But I think I can play.”

Scott got hurt on the first series of the second half when “someone rode up on my ankle and my foot was planted in the turf.” He did come back and came back strong to carry twice for 15 yards and return a kick for 27 yards.
