Knee injury ends season for Patriots DB Scott

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (July 30, 2007) -- New England Patriots defensive back Chad Scott will miss the upcoming season because of a knee injury, the team announced as cornerback Asante Samuel's holdout continued.

Scott, 32, was placed on the reserve/injured list. The news came only hours after coach Bill Belichick continued to describe Scott's injury as day-to-day.

Last season, Scott played in 14 regular-season games with nine starts. He made 44 tackles and had two interceptions. He signed with the Patriots before the 2005 season, which was cut short by a shoulder injury that October.

Scott was drafted in the first round, 24th overall, by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1997. He spent the first eight years of his career with the Steelers.

Meanwhile, Samuel continues holding out for a multiyear agreement instead of signing a one-year franchise tender.
