Bengals RB Scott’s status in doubt for Sunday

The Cincinnati Bengals report that RB Bernard Scott, who has started the last two weeks while Cedric Benson nursed a hip injury, is on crutches with a walking boot. His ability to play Sunday vs. Detroit is highly in doubt.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Tuesday that Benson will return and start after a two-week absence. Larry Johnson, signed as a free agent last month, reached the 100-yard mark last week and would serve as Benson’s backup.
