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.
Oct 8 - 3:01 PM

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.
Oct 6 - 4:09 PM

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.
Oct 2 - 8:26 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.
Sep 30 - 4:33 PM

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.
Sep 23 - 6:02 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.
Sep 21 - 5:51 PM

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.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 03:20:00 PM

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.
