Giants waived/injured RB Da'Rel Scott.
Scott suffered a serious hamstring injury in last Thursday's loss to the Bears. He'll revert to injured reserve if/when he clears waivers. The Giants are expected to sign a veteran back on Wednesday to take Scott's roster spot. Given major snaps this season, Scott responded by managing just 73 yards on 20 carries. Brandon Jacobs is locked in as the Giants' lead back until David Wilson (neck) returns.

A source tells the Daily News that Da'Rel Scott (hamstring) could be out through the Week 9 bye.
By the time Week 10 comes around, the Giants could have both David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) back in the fold. Scott will likely find himself back on the street once he's medically cleared.

Da'Rel Scott (hamstring) is expected to miss a "few weeks."
Scott strained his right hamstring late in Thursday night's loss to the Bears. With David Wilson's (neck) status for Week 7 also in question, Brandon Jacobs and Michael Cox are the only healthy running backs on the roster.

Da'Rel Scott rushed just four times for 17 yards in New York's Week 6 loss to the Bears, and departed late with a right leg injury.
He caught one pass for four yards. We'd imagine Scott was ticketed for a bigger role, but the Giants went with a one-man committee after Brandon Jacobs got off to a hot start, and largely stayed hot. Scott broke loose for a 13-yard run with the Giants rallying late in the fourth quarter, but blew a tire. He couldn't put any weight on his right leg as he was helped off the field. Scott also slipped on at least one other carry. Scott's Week 7 FLEX prospects are not bright.

Giants waived RB Da'Rel Scott.
It's a surprising move, and a vote of confidence in shaky starter David Wilson. It's a sign the Giants are ready to start using Wilson in more passing situations. It leaves the G-Men with just used-up veteran Brandon Jacobs and practice-squad type Michael Cox behind Wilson. Scott rushed five times for 26 yards against the Chiefs on Sunday, but was averaging only 3.5 yards per carry. That number slumps to 3.0 for his career.

Da'Rel Scott rushed five times for 26 yards and caught one pass for no yards in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.
Scott continues to play in all passing situations -- including third downs and four-minute drill. And he continues to hurt his team. Scott had a bad drop on a screen in this one and has no juice in the run game. With David Wilson gaining more and more trust, Scott's role should dwindle even further.

Giants RB Da'Rel Scott rushed once for five yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Carolina.
The Giants are using Scott strictly as a passing-down back, which isn't going to translate to fantasy value. He also has a limited skill set as a runner. Leave Scott quarantined to the waiver wire in 12-team leagues.

Da'Rel Scott rushed for two yards on five carries and caught two passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.
Scott had a knee scare earlier in the week. It didn't seem to affect him on Sunday. None of the three Giants' running backs could get anything going on the ground. Scott scored his touchdown deep into the fourth quarter in garbage time. He took a dump-off from Eli Manning and sprung into the end zone from 23 yards out. Scott isn't worth a roster spot in any re-draft formats.

Giants RB Da'Rel Scott (knee) is listed as probable for Week 2.
He practiced fully Friday. Scott is tentatively expected to receive the nominal "start" against Denver, but David Wilson should end up with more snaps and touches. We wouldn't even bother rostering Scott in fantasy leagues.
