New York Giants backup running back Da'Rel Scott was at the Hospital for Special Surgery on Tuesday receiving surgery on a torn meniscus in his right knee. He is expected to miss several weeks. The Giants have not yet made a roster move.
Scott has only had six carries so far through 2012 for a grand total of nine yards. With Ahmad Bradshaw, Andre Brown, and David Wilson ahead of him on the depth chart, Scott has seen very limited action on offense. With that, David Wilson's explosive kick off returns have negated his value to the Giants on special teams. Although Scott has breakaway speed, he has yet to showcase a physical style of play.
With Chris Canty eligible to come off the PUP this week, it's possible the Giants put Scott on the injured reserve to make room on the 53-man roster. Even if Canty isn't ready, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to keep a fourth-string running back on the roster who is going to be injured for several weeks.
The Giants will most likely make a roster move with Da'Rel Scott in the near future, and it's more then likely we will not see him for the remainder of the season. Although it's always good to have a guy with his speed on the roster, it's unlikely that he would have had an impact had he remained healthy. Luckily for Scott, a torn meniscus is not a career threatening injury. Giants 101 would like to wish him a speedy recovery.
