Scott hyperextended his toe in Week 3 against the Dolphins and has been dealing with the injury ever since. The Jets have listed Scott as doubtful. Enough rest will eliminate the need for surgery, the team believes. The Jets have bye next week, followed by a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 11.
Scott, 32, has 31 tackles without a sack. Josh Mauga is next on the depth chart.
"I don't care about a streak," Scott told The Star-Ledger this week. "If helping the team best is for me to be on the sideline, help these young linebackers see what's going on, then I'll do that."
