Dec 9 - 3:06 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick will miss "one or more games" after suffering two transverse process fractures in his back Thursday against the Redskins.

He suffered the injury early in the game but somehow played through it. Derek Carr suffered a similar injury earlier this year and only sat out one game, which suggests Scandrick could be back as soon as Week 15 versus Oakland. Xavier Woods is a candidate to fill in at slot corner.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) will practice on Thursday.

Scandrick was not able to play Week 2 after suffering a broken hand in the season opener, but he said on Wednesday he plans to play on Monday night. Practicing on Thursday puts him on track. After being shredded by Emmanuel Sanders last week, the Cowboys need Scandrick back in the lineup.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) plans to play against the Cardinals in Week 3.

Scandrick sat out Sunday's game in Denver with a fractured left hand but plans to be a full go this week. His return should force rookie Chidobe Awuzie back to the bench.
Sep 20 - 6:06 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) is out for Week 2 against the Broncos.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) is not practicing Thursday.

Scandrick underwent surgery to have a plate inserted into his broken left hand on Monday. Despite the operation, Scandrick had designs on playing this week, but it does not look like that will happen. Rookie Chidobe Awuzie will see more snaps if Scandrick is forced to sit.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick suffered a broken left hand Sunday night against the Giants.

Scandrick underwent surgery to have a plate inserted Monday. Coach Jason Garrett is optimistic the corner will return "sooner rather than later," but Scandrick missed the final five games of 2012 with a broken hand. Rookie Chidobe Awuzie will see more snaps if Scandrick is forced to miss time.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick suffered a left hand injury in Week 1 against the Giants.

Scandrick was injured making a second-quarter tackle on Paul Perkins. He was immediately ruled out and is likely looking at an extended absence. Chidobe Awuzie replaced Scandrick on the outside, with Anthony Brown playing the slot.
Sep 10 - 9:39 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick said he is "fully healthy."

Scandrick missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL and MCL, and he was limited last season by injuries to both hamstrings. He is healthy now, however, and reportedly putting on a show in training camp. Scandrick returning to his 2014 form would be a big boost for a questionable secondary.
Aug 24 - 9:47 AM

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.
Apr 29 - 8:52 AM

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.
