Bengals announce re-signing of HB Bernard Scott


The Bengals have re-signed HB Bernard Scott as an unrestricted free agent.

Scott (5-10, 198; Abilene Christian) is a fifth-year NFL player in 2013, having spent his full career with the Bengals after being drafted in the sixth round in 2009.

Scott was a significant contributor on offense and special teams in each of his first three seasons, but his 2012 campaign was derailed by injuries. He was limited early in the year by hand and ankle injuries, and in his second game played on the season, on Oct. 7 vs. Miami, he suffered a knee injury that resulted in his being placed Oct. 8 on the Reserve/Injured list.

He has played in 47 career games, including every game in 2010 and '11. He has 1035 career rushing yards on 255 carries (2.5 avg.) with four touchdowns, along with 29 receptions for 165 yards (5.7). He has averaged 24.5 yards on 73 kickoff returns, including a 96-yarder for a touchdown at Pittsburgh in 2009.
