Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick Injured in Victory Over Giants

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick left in the first half of Dallas’ season-opening victory over the New York Giants with a hand injury. He did not return to the game, and the latest update on his condition is not good news.

According to the Cowboys own sideline reporter Kristi Scales:

Jerry Jones confirms that Scandrick suffered fractured left hand

Scandrick had struggled with health the last few seasons. While he didn’t miss many games last year, Orlando was bothered with injuries that at times limited his performance. He missed all of 2015 with a severe injury to his knee.

Assuming Scandrick will miss time with this latest issue, Anthony Brown and Nolan Carroll will be relied on as the starters. Rookie Chidobe Awuzie should take over as the slot cornerback.  It will also call for rookie Jourdan Lewis and newly-acquired veteran Bene Benwikere to be ready to play; neither dressed for tonight’s game.

    Jess. I believe Scandrige will be able to play with a soft case
    He be limited but he will still be able to contribute to the Cowboys defense.
