Los Angeles Chargers WR Artavis Scott was carted off of the field in the final preseason game today. Scott had a ton of people rooting for him to make the squad to take the 5th wide receiver spot on the roster.

Scott was in a battle with Geremy Davis and JJ Jones for one of the final spots on the roster. I loved seeing him get a chance in the preseason, but this is going to set him back. If the injury is serious, he likely will be placed on the IR and be done for the year. He then could come back to the field next season to battle for a roster spot.

This does give an opportunity for the Chargers to keep Davis and Jones on the roster. Jones showed that he is a blazer and that he can bring something new on special teams. Davis likely would be sitting on the end of the bench and be inactive for most games, but he would be a nice stash to have on the roster. If there were any injuries, Davis could get his chance to perform.

We will see how back the injury is in the next few days, but it likely means that Scott will be placed on IR and the Chargers will keep Davis as the 5th receiver. We will see if there is enough room for Jones at the end of it all.

Do you think we keep Jones around?
