The Eagles and Scott agreed to terms on a one-year contract Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Philadelphia is getting back a familiar face to its backfield in Scott, who didn't receive a tender from the team as a restricted free agent this offseason. No matter, he's set to reprise his complementary role to starter Miles Sanders, which amounted to 100 touches for 456 yards from scrimmage and seven rushing TDs in 16 games last season.

Scott was not tendered by the Eagles, so he'll become a free agent when the new league year starts March 16, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
EDGE Analysis
Scott appeared in 16 games in each of the last two campaigns and finished with at least 80 carries and 370 yards in both seasons. However, last year, the 5-foot-6 running back was a revelation in the red zone, as he finished with a career-high seven touchdowns. Scott will test free agency, but Zangaro suggests that a return to Philadelphia may still be possible.

Scott rushed once for 34 yards and a touchdown while securing his lone target for one yard in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Buccaneers.
EDGE Analysis
Scott took on a backup role during Sunday's playoff matchup since Miles Sanders was available, but he still scored one of the Eagles' two touchdowns in the loss. The 26-year-old didn't have much fantasy value when Sanders was on the field, and he totaled 87 carries for 373 yards and seven touchdowns while securing 13 of 16 targets for 83 yards during the regular season. Scott is slated to become a restricted free agent during the offseason but will likely remain in a secondary role if he stays with the Eagles.

Scott and Jordan Howard are expected to rotate in behind lead option Miles Sanders (hand) for reps out of the backfield in Sunday's wild-card game against the Buccaneers, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
EDGE Analysis
Both Scott and Howard were sidelined for the regular-season finale against Dallas due to stints on the reserve/COVID-19 list, while Sanders was out for the second game in a row as he continued to recover from hand surgery. When Sanders was idle for the Week 17 win in Washington, Scott played a position-leading 52 percent of the offensive snaps and took 14 carries for 47 yards and two scores to go with four receptions for 39 yards, while Howard played 34 percent of snaps and finished with 11 carries for 26 yards. Both Scott and Howard will be hard pressed to see double-digit touches in the postseason opener, as head coach Nick Sirianni said that Sanders will face "no limitations" this Sunday after practicing fully Friday, according to Geoff Mosher of InsideTheBirds.com. That said, Sanders hasn't topped 60 percent of snaps since Week 6, so the Eagles should have small roles in the game plan available for both Scott and Howard. Scott is a decent bet to serve as a change-of-pace option who can relieve Sanders if there's any question about his ability to catch the ball securely in his return from the hand injury, while Howard's sturdy six-foot, 222-pound frame makes him well suited for short-yardage and goal-line work.

The Eagles activated Scott (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.
EDGE Analysis
Philadelphia returned all of its players on the virus list to the active roster ahead of Sunday's wild-card game in Tampa Bay, including three key skill-position players in Scott and Jordan Howard along with tight end Dallas Goedert. Meanwhile, No. 1 back Miles Sanders (hand) was sidelined along with Scott and Howard for the Eagles' Week 18 loss to the Cowboys, which allowed Kenneth Gainwell (12 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown, four catches for nine yards) to fill a three-down role. Sanders' status heading into the first round of the postseason this weekend isn't yet clear, but if he's not ready to go, Scott and Howard likely would share most of the carries, while Gainwell would serve as more of a change-of-pace option.

Scott (illness) remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Saturday's game against the Cowboys, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
The same goes for Jordan Howard (illness), and with Miles Sanders sidelined by a hand injury, Kenneth Gainwell figures to head the Eagles' Week 18 rushing attack, while Jason Huntley also is on hand to mix in. Scott thus will look clear the NFL's COVID-19 protocols in advance of the team's postseason opener next weekend.

The Eagles placed Scott on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.
EDGE Analysis
According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Scott was one of 12 Eagles placed on the list Monday after all of them tested positive for the virus. In addition to Scott, fellow running back Jordan Howard (illness) landed on the list, leaving rookie Kenneth Gainwell as the only healthy backfield option on the active roster ahead of Saturday's regular-season finale versus the Cowboys. Head coach Nick Sirianni already said earlier Monday that lead back Miles Sanders (hand) is expected to miss a second straight game this weekend.

Scott recorded 14 rushes for 47 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-16 win over Washington. He added four receptions for 39 yards.
EDGE Analysis
With Miles Sanders (hand) sidelined, Scott out-touched Jordan Howard 18-11. Scott wasn't particularly efficient on the ground, as he was largely shut down aside from a 14-yard rush late in the third quarter. However, he made his mark on the game with two touchdowns, which came from one and two yards, respectively. Scott was also a strong producer as a pass catcher, finishing second on the team in receptions and third in yardage. Pending Sanders' ability to return in Week 18, Scott should maintain a key role in Philadelphia's matchup against Dallas.

Scott rushed 12 times for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Giants.
EDGE Analysis
Scott saw just one carry in the first half but took the ball into the end zone from three yards out to break a 3-3 tie early in the third quarter after Jordan Howard had rushed three-straight times. The 26-year-old's final seven totes came with the Eagles in clock-killing mode at the end of the game. However, with Miles Sanders set to miss at least a game with a broken hand and Howard also recovering from a stinger, Scott and Kenneth Gainwell could see a lot more work in Week 17 against the Football Team.

Scott played just six snaps on special teams in Tuesday's 27-17 win over the Football Team.
EDGE Analysis
Scott had seen at least 20 snaps on offense from Weeks 7 to 12 but saw just three in Week 13 and played purely special teams with Jordan Howard healthy again in Week 15. It's unlikely things change with Week 16's matchup against the Giants coming just five days later.
