Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstrings) says he's not fully healthy.

"I’m just not myself," said Scandrick. "I haven’t played in a year, and after two games, I haven’t been able to play fully. I’m extremely sore." Scandrick's ACL has held up, but his hamstrings could keep him out against Chicago. He's allowed touchdowns in consecutive weeks despite limited playing time. Even if active, Scandrick should lose snaps to Anthony Brown.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Week 2 against the Redskins.

Scandrick missed Thursday's practice but returned to a full session on Friday. The Cowboys will wait to see how he looks in warmups before determining his status. Anthony Brown would function as the Cowboys' slot corner if Scandrick can't get the green light.
Sep 18 - 8:46 AM

The Cowboys are expected to restructure CB Orlando Scandrick's contract.

Scandrick will convert $4 million of his salary into a bonus. The move should create $3M in cap space that Dallas can use toward a backup quarterback. Scandrick is signed through 2019.
Aug 31 - 5:05 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (ACL, MCL) avoided active/PUP to open camp.

He's been medically cleared and will practice immediately. Scandrick's loss was one of the biggest in an injury-ravaged 2015 season for the Cowboys. When healthy, Scandrick is Dallas' best cover corner. He will likely spend most of 2016 in the slot with Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr on the boundaries.
Jul 29 - 12:13 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (knee) expects to be ready for training camp.

Scandrick was cleared for limited OTA work. Barring a setback, he’ll avoid opening camp on active/PUP. Scandrick will be a full year removed from ACL surgery for Week 1.
Jul 16 - 4:07 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (knee) has been cleared for individual work.

Scandrick is unlikely to get in any team drills, but remains on track for training camp. He’ll be a full year removed from ACL/MCL surgery for Week 1.
Jun 8 - 7:21 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (ACL, MCL) is on schedule for training camp.

Scandrick is expected to be limited during the offseason program, but he should be close to full health by the time training camp rolls around. Easily the best corner on the roster, Scandrick's healthy return will be a big boost for the secondary. The Cowboys still need to add some corner help in the draft.
Apr 18 - 11:32 AM

Cowboys placed CB Orlando Scandrick (ACL, MCL) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Scandrick tore up his knee in practice last Tuesday. It's a big, big loss for the Cowboys, who now have a cornerback corps populated by youth, injury questions and free agent bust Brandon Carr. Scandrick, who turns 29 in February, is signed through 2019.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick's MRI on Tuesday night confirmed he suffered a torn ACL and MCL.

Scandrick's season is over. In his prime at 28, Scandrick was easily the Cowboys' best corner, and it now leaves Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne, and first-rounder Byron Jones atop the depth chart. Carr has been a colossal free-agent bust, Claiborne is coming off a torn patellar tendon, and Jones is working his way back from an early-camp shoulder issue after battling shoulder problems in college. Scandrick signed a contract extension in the spring and is inked through 2019.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick was carted off the practice field Tuesday with what the team "fears" is a torn ACL.

It's believed to be a right knee injury for Scandrick, who was crying as he was carted off the field. Scandrick was hurt after running into undrafted WR Lucky Whitehead during a drill. The Cowboys can ill-afford to lose Scandrick, who is easily their best corner. We'll post an official update when one is provided.

Cowboys signed CB Orlando Scandrick to a one-year, $9.5 million contract extension through 2019.

See, holding out does work sometimes. The total value of Scandrick's new five-year deal is worth $20 million. Scandrick skipped voluntary workouts earlier this offseason before reporting to the team this week. He was already under contract through 2018, but was scheduled to earn just $1.5 million this season and $3 million in each of 2016-2018. With Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne on the roster bubble, keeping Scandrick happy was a necessity for Dallas.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick will report to team workouts Monday at Valley Ranch.

He's been holding out for a new contract and it looks like the two sides should have a new deal in place by the end of the week. Scandrick is likely headed for a big raise. The 28-year-old finished tenth out of 108 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' 2014 cornerback ratings.
Sun, May 17, 2015 12:45:00 PM

CB Orlando Scandrick is in Dallas meeting with the Cowboys about his contract.

Scandrick is staying away from offseason workouts to protest his current contract, which is set to pay him $1.5 million in 2015. He has a case for a raise, as he was one of the league's top corners last year and a major key to Dallas' shockingly-competent defensive performance. The Cowboys' willingness to meet with Scandrick suggests some kind of raise is coming.
Tue, May 12, 2015 11:55:00 AM

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones didn't sound open to the idea of re-working CB Orlando Scandrick's contract.

"He’s under contract, but not unlike a lot of players, they’d like to have more," Jones said. "If something makes sense for us to add some years or do something then we’ll take a look at that, but we just re-did Orlando’s contract a couple years ago." Scandrick, set to earn just $1.5 million in 2015, didn't show up for voluntary workouts earlier this week. He's signed cheaply through 2018.
