Pederson on Boston Scott: 'Diamond in the rough'

The 5'6", 200-pound Boston Scott has been the most remarkable revelation of the 2019 Eagles' season. 

In Sunday's NFC East clinching victory at the Giants, with top two running backs Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders out with injuries, the little guy who started the season on Philadelphia's practice squad changed the game. Scott accounted for 138 total scrimmage yards, three touchdowns, and one ridiculous catch, spin, and run that had everyone buzzing.

"He has definitely been a bright spot. He has been a burst of energy for our offense. Hard to contain, he's quick, he's elusive, he's tough, he's smart. I think we found one of those diamonds in the rough, but again it's not about one guy. He's a part of it and we're just happy to keep him involved each week."

Pederson says he's optimistic the Eagles will get some of their injured players back for Sunday's home playoff game against the Seahawks and he hopes to have a more detailed update during his noon press conference.
