Bengals RBs BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Bernard Scott on track for Week 1

Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis @TheLawFirmBJGE didn't play in the final two preseason games because of a foot injury. Teammate Bernard Scott missed basically all of training camp because of a broken hand. But with their season opener now less than a week away, the odds are improving that this duo will be on the field Monday night versus the Ravens.
Scott took part in practice on Monday for the first time in a month. Green-Ellis has been practicing for the past week, and head coach Marvin Lewis said that while Green-Ellis sat out a couple of preseason games, that wouldn't have been the case if it was the regular season.

Fantasy Analysis:

BJG-E is a lock to play this week. Scott is a little more iffy, meaning Green-Ellis will probably get a large majority of the touches in the opening weeks. But in time, Scott's going to get healthy and turn this thing into a nightmare for fantasy owners. Green-Ellis will continue to be the touchdown maven, but I think this backfield will be close to an even split.
