For New York Giants running back Da'Rel Scott, this year has been like a wild rollercoaster with its ups and downs. And after facing a possible cut earlier in September, injuries and fumbling issues by other running backs paved the way for him to not only make the 53-man roster, but see a large role in a 36-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Unfortunately, things hit another low on Wednesday after the running back suffered a knee injury in practice.
After suffering the injury, Scott was unable to return to and promptly taken for additional tests.
When the Giants released their official injury report, Scott was listed as LP (or limited participation) with "knee" as his injury.
Meanwhile, this could greatly impact the need for recently signed running back, Brandon Jacobs, to be ready by the time Sunday rolls around. Sitting on his couch only a few days ago, he may need to step up and be the No. 2 man behind David Wilson when Big Blue takes on the Denver Broncos.
Luckily, the big guy has stayed in shape, saying he checked in at 265 lbs. He also admitted that he "might cry" when he takes the field on Sunday after a "cursed" and "humbling" experience in San Francisco last year.
Update: Josina Anderson of ESPN reports no structural damage in Da'Rel Scott's knee. Says team will monitor for swelling.
