Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick said he is not concerned about trade rumors or the team drafting three cornerbacks.
"I just control the things that I can control," Scandrick said. "I feel like when I'm healthy and on top of my game, I can compete with anybody." Jerry Jones quickly shot down trade rumors which popped up during the draft, but Scandrick said he has yet to talk to the owner. Even after drafting Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, the Cowboys are not in a position to let Scandrick go. May 9 - 10:22 AM

Jerry Jones said the Cowboys "have no intention at all" to trade CB Orlando Scandrick.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Cowboys were shopping Scandrick for a third-round pick on Friday night. Dallas did add two corners on the second day of the draft -- Colorado's Awuzie Chidobe and Michigan's Jourdan Lewis -- but they still are not in a position to part with talent in the secondary. Scandrick was effective last season despite dealing with injuries to both hamstrings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys are asking for a third-round pick for CB Orlando Scandrick.

He became expendable when the Cowboys selected Colorado CB Chidobe Awuzie with the No. 60 overall pick. Scandrick dealt with hamstring trouble last year but earned positive marks in coverage from ProFootballFocus when healthy. If the Cowboys do end up moving Scandrick, Awuzie would likely start opposite Anthony Brown at corner.
Apr 28 - 9:26 PM

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said CB Orlando Scandrick has been playing through a foot injury.

It explains why Anthony Brown started over Scandrick on Thursday night. Scandrick had a good game in the slot, allowing six yards on four catches. He’ll have 10 days to rest up for Week 14.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstrings) is not expected to play Week 6.

Scandrick has not played since Week 2, and he is now apparently dealing with injuries to both hamstrings. He could be out through the Week 7 bye.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (questionable, hamstrings) is likely to miss Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Scandrick was limited Wednesday, but didn't practice the last two days. He's a candidate to be held out through Dallas' Week 7 bye. Anthony Brown will continue to replace Scandrick in the slot.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstring) didn't practice on Thursday.

It's a downgrade for Scandrick, who was a limited participant at Wednesday's session. His injury is listed as "hamstring/hamstring," which means he's dealing with two bum hamstrings. We don't like Scandrick's chances of playing this week. He hasn't been active since Week 2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstring, questionable) will not play Week 4 against the 49ers.

There was some hope Scandrick would make his return this week, but there is no reason to rush him against the 49ers' impotent offense. He should be good to go for Week 5 against the Bengals.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 08:26:00 AM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstring) is questionable for Week 4 against the 49ers.

Scandrick was absent for Week 3 but has a good chance to return this week after putting in three limited practices. If Scandrick suits up, he'll man slot corner with Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne operating on the outside.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstrings) is questionable for Week 3.

Scandrick didn't practice all week. He's not close to fully healthy despite playing the last two games. The Cowboys are calling Scandrick a game-time decision, but Anthony Brown should replace him in the slot on Sunday night.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 06:02:00 PM

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.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 08:46:00 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.
Wed, Aug 31, 2016 05:05:00 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.
Fri, Jul 29, 2016 12:13:00 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.
