Report: MRI shows no damage in Bernard Scott's knee

The past two weeks has been somewhat treacherous for the Cincinnati Bengals. Antwan Odom was lost for the year against Houston. Domata Peko suffered a knee injury in the same game that generated enough concern that we wondered if he'd be out for some time. He played against the Bears. Then against the Bears, Jeremi Johnson and Bernard Scott left the game. Marvin Lewis said that Jeremi should be alright and we'd know later about Bernard Scott. Later is now.

On Wednesday, C Trent Rosencrans tweets:

Bernard Scott said the MRI showed no damage in his knee and he should be fine

Scott's injury couldn't have come at a worse time for him personally. Cincinnati dominated the Chicago Bears on Sunday, taking a 31-3 half time lead. Typically during blowout games, backup players tend to get a majority of their work in, during what's called "garbage time". With Brian Leonard inactive, Bernard Scott would have finished the game in place of Benson. When Scott and Jeremi went down, Benson was forced to take the bulk of the carries to finish the game, giving him 37 rushing attempts.
