Bernard Scott has waited two years to get this chance. The shifty running back will be featured in the Cincinnati Bengals' offense Sunday in Seattle. Scott takes over for starter Cedric Benson, who has been suspended one game for violating the NFL's conduct policy. Scott hasn't started in two years and has been relegated to a couple of series per game this season. He has only 30 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown, compared to Benson's 117 carries for 458 yards. Scott is quicker and more of an outside runner, which could slightly change the Bengals' attack. Cincinnati (4-2) is coming off its bye and will be making its first visit to the West Coast this season. The Seahawks (2-4) are coming off a 6-3 loss in Cleveland.

Terrell Owens Gets Stood Up

Terrell Owens held a public workout to drum up interest for his attempted return to the NFL. One problem: Not a single NFL team showed up to watch the workout.
