ScottMike Carter-USA TODAY SportsThe Cleveland Browns signed running back L.J. Scott on Monday. In a subsequent transaction, the team waived running back Devante Mays.An undrafted free agent, Scott played four years at Michigan State, where he made 23 starts. He finished his collegiate career at No. 9 on the schools all-time list for rushing yards (2,855) and carries (610), while his 25 rushing touchdowns are 12th in program history. Scott, who is 6-foot and 227 pounds, had his best season in 2016 when he rushed for 994 yards and averaged 5.4 yards per carry. (Although his 2015 season, where he had 11 rushing touchdowns and averaged 4.8 yards per carry, was pretty good as well.)According to Lance Zierleins draft profile of Scott at NFL.com:Scott battled an ankle injury his senior year and played in just five games, where he only averaged 3.3 yards per carry on 79 rushing attempts. He originally had a rookie minicamp tryout with the Baltimore Ravens, but the Ravens obviously decided not to sign him.Scott will now have an opportunity to show the Browns what he can do as the team opens the first of 10 Organized Team Activities on Tuesday in Berea. CINCINNATI (AP) A jogging Hue Jackson didnt break stride as he left the practice field. The recently fired Browns head coach was trying to outrun questions about what its like being on the opposite sideline this week.Jackson left Cincinnati after the 2015 season and spent two-plus seasons trying futilely to get the Browns to win. Now hes back in town , trying to beat them in a pivotal game.Hes hoping his insights give the Bengals (5-5) an edge Sunday in the intrastate rivalry. The stakes are high for Cincinnati, which has dominated the series lately and wants to keep it that way.Everybody wants to count us out right now, center Billy Price said. Everybody wants to put us in the dumpster and light us on fire, but we still have a lot to accomplish. We have a lot of things going on. We have a lot of winnable games coming up here.The Browns (3-6-1) merely would like a victory away from the shore of Lake Erie.Cleveland has lost 25 consecutive road games, one shy of the NFL mark held by the Detroit Lions from 2007-10. The Browns last win on the road came at Baltimore https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Damarious-Randall-Jersey , where Josh McCown led them to a 33-30 overtime victory on Oct. 11, 2015 back when Jackson was the Bengals offensive coordinator.Whether the streak endures or ends will come down to whether the Bengals figure out a way to stop Clevelands rookie duo on offense.Last week, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson and running back Gus Edwards became the first rookie QB/RB duo to run for at least 100 yards in the same game, leading Baltimore to a 24-21 victory over Cincinnati. The Bengals have given up more than 200 yards rushing in each of the last two games.By contrast, Cleveland beat Kansas City 28-16 before heading into its bye week. Rookie Baker Mayfield tied a club rookie record with three touchdown passes, and rookie Nick Chubb ran for a career-high 176 yards, including a 92-yard touchdown that was the second-longest by a rookie in NFL history.I think it is our guys believing in it, knowing that we do not need anything else besides what we have in this locker room, blocking out the distractions and coming together, Mayfield said. Things happen, and you can use it for good. We did.Can they do it again against their former head coach?Some things to watch at Paul Brown Stadium:HUE KNOWSHow much can Hue Jackson tip the outcome? Sure, he knows the Browns systems intimately and the players personally, but having the bye week allowed Cleveland to change some things.In all honesty, there are no secrets anymore in the league with how all the film is out there to show everybody exactly what youre doing, Brown interim coach Gregg Williams said.OH THAT DEFENSEThe Bengals fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin after becoming the first team in the Super Bowl era to allow 500 yards in three straight games. Coach Marvin Lewis assumed the job of defensive coordinator as well as hiring Jackson as a special assistant on defense. The change didnt make enough of a difference as the Bengals got run over in Baltimore. Their main focus this week is stopping Chubb.We know thats their emphasis right now and thats what theyre going to try to attack us with because thats our perceived weakness right now, defensive end Carlos Dunlap said.SERIES-LY ONE-SIDEDThe Bengals have won seven in a row against the Browns, the longest winning streak by either team in the intrastate series. The Bengals have won the last seven by 30 Darren Fells Jersey , 21, 34, 14, 13, 24 and 24 points. The Bengals are 7-1 against Browns rookie quarterbacks under Lewis, who is in his 16th season. The only loss was 34-24 at Cleveland in 2012 behind Brandon Weeden.ONE, TWONot only are the Browns hoping to avoid infamy with their 26th straight road loss, theyre trying to start a winning streak.Cleveland hasnt won two straight games since 2014, when the Browns reeled off three in a row while improving to 6-3 under then-coach Mike Pettine. That seems like an eternity ago for the Browns, who have gone 8-56-1 since that modest run.Any time a team (starts) to win a couple in a row, it builds momentum, it builds belief and that can have a positive impact on your team, right guard Kevin Zeitler said. Itd be real nice if we can get that going.PLAYOFFS?While the game has significance for Cincinnatis playoff hopes, the Browns arent yet finished ruminating about the postseason. Theyd likely have to win their last six games to end a playoff drought dating to 2002.If you cant and dont believe that we can make a playoff run, then youre on the wrong team, cornerback T.J. Carrie said. And I feel like from that standpoint we all have that feeling and that emotion about we can definitely do something very special and were capable of doing it.
