  • Bengals' Nick Scott: Signs with Cincinnati

    Scott agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract with the Bengals on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Scott had a career-best season with the Rams in 2022, totaling 86 tackles (56 solo) along with five defensed passes, two interceptions and two forced fumbles. The Penn State product injured his rotator cuff near the end of the campaign and was subsequently placed on IR, but he should be good to go for the start of training camp. Scott will likely join Dax Hill as the Bengals' starting safeties next season.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Moved to IR

    The Rams placed Scott (shoulder) on injured reserve Saturday.

    Scott had already been ruled for Sunday's regular-season finale versus Seattle after injuring his rotator cuff during the Week 17 loss to the Chargers. The 2019 seventh-round pick will now look to get healthy heading into the offseason, as he is set to hit free agency coming off his fourth season with the Rams.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Out with shoulder injury

    Scott (shoulder) will miss Sunday's season finale versus the Seahawks, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Scott suffered a shoulder injury on top of the stinger he sustained in Week 17 against the Chargers, and he will now be forced to miss the Rams' final game of the year. The 27-year-old will finish the 2022 campaign with a career-high 86 tackles while also recording five pass deflections, two interceptions and two forced fumbles over 16 contests. In Scott's absence Week 18, Russ Yeast is expected to take over as starting free safety versus Seattle.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Logs limited practice Thursday

    Scott (shoulder) logged a limited practice Thursday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Scott managed to practice fully Wednesday but was unable to Thursday as his shoulder injury continued to limit him. If the safety is able to log a full practice again Friday, he should be able to suit up against the Seahawks on Sunday. Expect Quentin Lake to start in relief of Scott if he's unavailable.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Dealing with rotator cuff injury

    Scott (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday against the Seahawks according to head coach Sean McVay, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Scott suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, but it appears he's not expected to miss any time. He should suit up Week 18 in Seattle barring any setbacks, although his practice status throughout the week may be worth monitoring.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Leads Rams with nine total stops

    Scott racked up eight defensive tackles (seven solo) and another stop on special teams in Monday's loss to Green Bay.

    Scott's tackle total tied his high mark in 2022, matching the mark he produced Week 10 against Arizona. The fourth-year pro out of Penn State has played on nearly every defensive snap for the Rams since Week 3, and he's already far surpassed his career-best mark with 78 stops on the season. Scott has also notched two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Forces fumble in loss

    Scott recorded nine tackles (eight solo) and a forced fumble during Sunday's 27-17 defeat against the Cardinals.

    Scott tied linebacker Bobby Wagner as the team's second-leading tackler, as these two were the only Rams defenders to play every defensive snap. The safety also knocked loose a fumble on tight end Trey McBride, though the ball was ultimately recovered by Arizona. Scott has now played 100 percent of Los Angeles' defensive snaps in six of nine games this season, and he'll continue to play a prominent role this coming Sunday against New Orleans.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Season-high eight total stops

    Scott tallied eight tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 31-14 defeat versus the 49ers.

    Scott finished as the Rams' second-leading tackler behind outside linebacker Leonard Floyd while also logging his third pass defended of the season Sunday. The free safety has played every defensive snap over the past three contests, and he is on pace to set career highs in tackles and passes defended after stepping into a starting role this season.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Logs first pick of the season

    Scott recorded two tackles (one solo) and an interception in Sunday's 24-10 win against the Panthers.

    Any fleeting hope of a comeback by the Panthers was ended by the talented safety, as a P.J. Walker pass was deflected by Ernest Jones and caught by a diving Scott in the end zone to seal the victory for the Rams. In just six games, Scott has nearly matched his snap count from a full 17-game slate in 2021, and he should continue to get plenty of opportunities to produce alongside Taylor Rapp with Jordan Fuller (hamstring) out until mid-November.

  • Rams' Nick Scott: Forces fumble in opener

    Scott recorded seven tackles (three solo) and forced a fumble in Thursday's 31-10 loss to the Bills.

    Scott was able to record the Rams' second forced fumble of the contest late in the fourth quarter, stripping Zack Moss with the game already out of reach. Scott was on field for 52 of the Rams' 59 defensive snaps, an encouraging number as the Rams welcome the Falcons to town in Week 2.
