Even practicing on a limited basis is good news for Scrandrick after not playing in the Cowboys' Week 2 blowout loss to the Broncos. Dallas' injury issues at cornerback were exposed by Trevor Siemian on Sunday, and if Scandrick is able to play it would provide a big boost as the Cowboys face the Cardinals.
Scandrick (hand) is taking part in Thursday's practice, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Once the Cowboys wrap up their first practice of the week, the team will announce whether Scandrick was a full or partial participant, but either way, it seems he's trending toward suiting up for the Monday night matchup with the Cardinals. Scandrick missed the Cowboys' Week 2 blowout loss to the Broncos while recovering from surgery to address the fractured hand, which didn't go unnoticed in a game that Denver quarterback Trevor Siemian tossed four touchdown passes. Scandrick's likely return in Week 3 should help bolster a Cowboys secondary that could be without the services of its other starting cornerback in Nolan Carroll, who remains in the NFL's concussion protocol.
Scandrick (hand) won't play Sunday against the Broncos, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
This news was expected, but now that it's official Scandrick can focus on getting ready for Week 3. In his place, second-year Anthony Brown, who recorded 55 tackles (40 solo), eight pass breakups and one interception in 2016, will fill in.
Coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that Scandrick (hand) is not ready to practice, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as while Scandrick wouldn't rule himself out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the coaching staff was pretty set on sitting the cornerback for Week 2. With his inability to practice, expect Scandrick to be held out this weekend, but he does hope to return by Week 3 at the latest.
Scandrick (hand) will not rule himself out for Week 2's game against the Broncos and hopes to return for Week 3 at the very latest, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
It was reported Monday morning that Scandrick will not play Week 2 against the Broncos, but it appears as though the cornerback is trying to make a quick return to the field. He called himself day-to-day and said he wants to play if he can tolerate the pain. Expect an update later in the week regarding his status for this weekend.
