Shark Bites

Multiple reports from the Eagles beat have had RB Boston Scott catching the ball well -- specifically in reps with QB Jalen Hurts. Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia writes that Scott has "looked very smooth as a receiver out of the backfield" and that he has been getting more 1st-team reps than any other Eagles RB besides Miles Sanders. The pass-catching talk is particularly noteworthy because it has accompanied multiple reports of Sanders continuing to drop passes. And rookie Kenneth Gainwell arrives with receiving ability as 1 of his strengths. For now, though, it sounds like Scott is on a path to be Philly's #2 RB. We wouldn't invest too heavily in any Eagles RB right now and aren't ready to plant a flag with Scott over Gainwell. But it'll be a situation to monitor as we see usage in the preseason games.

Eagles RB Boston Scott is sidelined with a concussion. It shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the season but is worth filing away in case he suffers another head injury. Scott is expected to open the season as Philly's #3 RB behind Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell.

The Eagles are re-signing RB Boston Scott to a 1-year, $1.75 million deal with $1.1 million guaranteed -- plus another $500,000 available via incentives. That kind of money doesn't guarantee anything in particular for Scott's role -- other than probably being on the team. He totaled just 87 carries and 16 targets in HC Nick Sirianni's 1st season. We'll see what the Philly backfield looks like as we move toward training camp. Scott's in the late-round RB mix in current best-ball drafting but doesn't merit special attention.

Eagles RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard were not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's game vs. the Cowboys. Both guys should be back for the playoffs. Philly elevated RB Jason Huntley, who will join Kenneth Gainwell in the backfield. We're expecting Gainwell to lead in touches.

Eagles RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard joined a slew of teammates in testing positive for COVID on Monday. There's time for each player to return to the active roster ahead of Saturday night's game against the Cowboys. We'll see how this situation develops.

11:34am EST 12/5/21

Eagles RB Boston Scott (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He was unable to practice all week, and it’s unclear if that’ll impact his role today. We’re still projecting Scott to see 10-12 carries as the #2 RB behind Miles Sanders, putting Scott in the RB3 or flex mix.
