Scott to start at LB?

Posted by Chris Brown on November 11, 2009 – 4:42 pm

It’s by no means a lock, but Bryan Scott began his second week of practice with the linebackers Wednesday.

The veteran strong safety has been working with the linebackers in practice since the bye week as injuries have decimated the position. Kawika Mitchell and Marcus Buggs have already been lost for the season and Keith Ellison’s status this week is up in the air with a quad injury.

With only rookies and special teamers behind the starters on the depth chart, the defensive staff has elected to give Scott an opportunity.

“We’ve been so unlucky there that it gives us what we think may be our best shot,” said head coach Dick Jauron.

Scott got some first team reps at linebacker Wednesday. We’ll let you know if that changes as the week unfolds. Nic Harris seems to be the alternative to Scott.
