Scandrick was released by the Eagles on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Scandrick signed with the Eagles in late September and delivered two sacks, two forced fumbles and a touchdown in his team debut, but the team apparently wasn't happy with his performance over the last two games. The veteran cornerback will now look to continue his 2019 season elsewhere.
Scandrick (illness) practiced in full Thursday.
Scandrick couldn't practice Wednesday, but he now appears back to full capacity. Coming off an outstanding season debut against Luke Falk and the Jets, Scandrick will look to carry over his momentum into a Week 6 tilt versus Minnesota.
Scandrick was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to an illness.
Scandrick had an impressive debut with the Eagles on Sunday with two sacks, two forced fumbles and a touchdown, but he started this week not practicing since he's under the weather. It's unclear if the illness is expected to impact his availability for Week 6.
Scandrick registered two sacks, forced two fumbles and returned one for a touchdown in Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.
Scandrick was signed since the Eagles were beat up in the secondary, and he immediately made an impact. His season debut was highlighted by a play where he ripped the ball out of Luke Falk's hands and ran it back for a touchdown. It'll be hard for the veteran cornerback to repeat this performance at any point this season, but he's worth keeping an eye on in IDP leagues.
Scandrick agreed to a deal with the Eagles on Friday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Scandrick spent training camp with the Eagles before getting released during final roster cuts. However, a plethora of injuries at cornerback have resulted in his return to the squad. He could potentially see some playing time right out the gate.
Scandrick was released by the Eagles on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Scandrick was a mainstay in Dallas for his first nine professional seasons before spending 2018 in Kansas City. The veteran was presumably a tough cut for the Eagles as they narrow down their player pool to 53. Should he not find a new destination immediately, he could be eligible to return to Philadelphia by Week 2.
Scandrick inked a contract with the Eagles following a workout Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Scandrick will add to the depth at corner for the Eagles, after he racked up 44 tackles (38 solo) and one interception in 15 games for the Chiefs last season. The signing comes at an opportune time for Scandrick, as fellow corners Ronald Darby (knee) and Cre'von LeBlanc (foot) are dealing with injuries. The veteran could definitely warrant playing time during the regular season should injuries and his play pick up.
Scandrick recorded a season-high nine tackles (eight solo) and had one pass defensed Sunday against the Raiders.
Another week and another shootout for the Chiefs led to Scandrick doing much more work than usual in Sunday's contest. He hadn't recorded more than six tackles in a contest prior and owns just one interception to his name so far this season. The veteran cornerback remains largely off the IDP radar and that's unlikely to change with just two interceptions marking his career-high output for a season.
Scandrick's presence on the Kansas City roster made David Amerson expendable, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Amerson did himself no favors with a poor showing this preseason, but he might have stuck around anyway if the Chiefs hadn't added Scandrick, who could be in the mix for regular snaps as the team's nickelback. Steven Nelson and Kendall Fuller likely will be the starting cornerbacks.
The Redskins are releasing Scandrick, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Despite signing a two-year contract with a $1 million signing bonus in March, the 31-year-old cornerback didn't even come close to making it to Week 1 with his new team. The Redskins must have confidence in their young cornerbacks behind Josh Norman, with Quinton Dunbar expected to fill the other starting job while Fabian Moreau figures to serve as the nickelback. Scandrick may still end up on a 53-man roster for Week 1, as his experience playing the slot could lead to interest from teams in need of a nickelback or dimeback. He was bothered by back spasms at the beginning of training camp, but he seems to be healthy now.
Scandrick was held out of Saturday's practice due to back spasms, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Scandrick's back spasms are not believed to be of the serious magnitude but anything back related is always wise to keep an eye on. Expect Washington to play this one particularly safe and unwilling to risk losing Scandrick for an extended period of time. In the meantime, Quinton Dunbar will take over Scandrick's duties at corner during his temporary absence.
Scandrick rotated to slot cornerback when the Redskins worked out of their nickel defense this spring, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.
Scandrick often served as the Cowboys' top cover corner in recent seasons, but on the Josh Norman-led Redskins the 31-year-old should return to a role similar to the one he had during his earlier days in Dallas when he regularly performed as one of the league's top slot corners. Scandrick could still get some reps outside in 2018, considering he's also been working with the starters in Washington's base defense. Quinton Dunbar has been playing outside in the nickel defense, allowing Scandrick to slide inside.
The Redskins signed Scandrick (back) to a contract Monday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.
Jettisoned by the only organization he's ever known (the Cowboys) on Sunday, Scandrick found a new home in quick order. Due to his experience, the 10-year pro is the top candidate to work opposite Josh Norman in Washington's base defense in 2018. For his career, Scandrick has averaged 3.2 tackles per game while racking up 11.5 sacks, eight interceptions and six forced fumbles in 125 outings.
The Cowboys have informed Scandrick (back) of his release, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.
Scandrick reportedly asked the team to release him, perhaps believing that the use of three 2017 draft picks on cornerbacks could soon leave him without a significant role. He did start all 11 games he played last season, missing Week 2 with a fractured hand and Weeks 14-17 with a back injury. Assuming he's healthy or will be soon, the 31-year-old shouldn't have too much trouble finding another job, though he may end up settling for a depth role.
Scandrick (back) has requested his release from the Cowboys, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Scandrick may feel he's being phased out in Dallas with the team bringing in so many young bodies at the position within the past year, namely 2017 draft picks Chidobe Awuzie (second round), Jourdan Lewis (third) and Xavier Woods (sixth). Furthermore, it's reported the team plans to move 2015 first-rounder Byron Jones over to corner as well. Scandrick is likely hoping the Cowboys inform him of his future with the team before free agency opens Wednesday. Dallas would save $1.4 million against the cap with his release.
Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones indicated Tuesday that Scandrick (back) is likely to cut or traded, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The news isn't altogether surprising given Scandrick's recent injury troubles as well as youngsters Jourdan Lewis, Chidobe Awuzie and Anthony Brown playing prominent roles in Dallas' secondary in 2017. The 31-year-old finished the season on injured reserve as he dealt with two separate fractures in his back, but he is still likely to latch on somewhere in need of a veteran cornerback, assuming the recovery process continues smoothly.
Scandrick (back) will be placed on injured reserve Friday according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com.
The veteran cornerback has missed the past three games due to two separate fractures in his back, leaving him unavailable for Sunday's season finale. Scandrick recorded 38 tackles (32 solo) and three passes defensed in 11 games this season, but it is the first time he did not record an interception since 2012. He is under contract for one more season with Dallas, where he's spent his entire nine-year career. However, his return to the team isn't guaranteed, especially considering the Cowboys' decision to give more reps to their younger secondary talent throughout this season.
Scandrick (back) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus the Seahawks, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
In Week 13, Scandrick sustained two transverse fractures in his back, which generally is accompanied by a multiweek absence in most occasions. Scandrick's is no exception, but it appeared he was closing in on a return this week with limited practices Wednesday through Friday. In his stead, Chidobe Awuzie will start at cornerback opposite fellow rookie Jourdan Lewis.
Scandrick (back) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Scandrick was listed as questionable heading into the weekend after turning in a trio of limited practices this week. It appears that won't be enough for the cornerback to play while he recovers from a pair of bone fractures in his back, but his official status will be announced approximately 90 minutes before the 4:25 p.m. EST kickoff.
Scandrick (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Scandrick was a limited participant in practice this week to earn the questionable tag. He'll be aiming to see his first game action since suffering a pair of bone fractures in his back in Week 14. Rookies Jourdan Lewis, Chidobe Awuzie and Xavier Woods would see snaps as the Cowboys' top three cornerbacks if Scandrick is unable to play Sunday.
