    Scandrick has been upset recently with rookie cornerback getting the starting nod as of late. Scandrick only played in nickel situations against the Vikings on Thursday, playing just 54 of 74 defensive snaps.

    The Cowboys have a 2.5 game lead over Seattle in the race for the top seed. The sooner the Cowboys lock up the top seed, the sooner Scandrick and other teammates can get up to 3 weeks of rest.

    Scandrick has a troubled injury recently, missing all of 2015 with an ACL and MCL tear in his left knee suffered during . He has also missed four games this season with hamstring issues.
