Scott getting linebacker reps

Posted by Chris Brown on November 26, 2008 – 5:43 pm

It’s not the first time that safety Bryan Scott has been getting linebacker reps in practice, but this week the chances of seeing Scott lined up at linebacker might be much more realistic if Keith Ellison’s absence is injury related.

Ellison was absent at practice Wednesday, with details expected to be provided later in the afternoon.

Teddy Lehman would be the first linebacker off the bench in such a situation, but he suffered a hamstring injury last Sunday and is not practicing. So Scott is the temporary starter replacing Ellison.

The trickle down effect will put George Wilson again as the starter at strong safety.

Once there is word on Ellison’s situation we will better know the likelihood of Scott being at linebacker for Sunday’s game.
