Bryan Scott was getting reps at outside linebacker in practice Tuesday.
This is not the first time it has happened as the strong safety has taken reps there before as an emergency option. That again appears to be the case, and with the extra time during the bye Scott is getting a refresher.
“I think it’s more just in case of emergency and make sure that I’m prepared,” said Scott. “I probably won’t have to do it, but just in case you want to be ready.”
Scott took reps at LB last year when the LB unit was shorthanded. With Keith Ellison nursing a quad injury the staff apparently wanted to give Scott some extra reps there so there is an emergency option they feel comfortable with behind rookie Nic Harris, should he be forced to step in like he did last week when Ellison left the game.
“It’s just a different read so instead of being eight yards off the line of scrimmage you’re down in the box all the time. It’s fine.”
