Scandrick will have a plate put in his left hand to stabilize a broken third metacarpal today and will miss the team’s Week 2 game. However, the good news for Scandrick and the Cowboys is that he could be back as soon as Week 3 for their matchup with the Cardinals.
Scandrick, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2008. He is in the third year of his five-year, $20 million contract and set to make a base salary of $3 million for the 2017 season.
Scandrick suffered a season-ending knee injury back in 2015 and was placed on injured reserve.
This season, Scandrick has recorded two tackles and no interceptions for the Cowboys over the course of one game.
