Cowboys Orlando Scandrick Suffers Season-Ending Torn ACL and MCL

Cornerback will miss 2015 campaign following surgery.

Published August 26, 2015

Bad news for the Dallas Cowboys.

The team lost their starting cornerback Orlando Scandrick for the season after he suffered a torn ACL and MCL in practice Tuesday, as confirmed by the NFL Network. Scandrick will need surgery, ending his year.

According to reports, Scandrick hit the ground in pain after colliding with wide receiver Lucky Whitehead.

Footage from practice captured the moment Scandrick suffered the injury. He was then carted off the field.

The news is especially unfortunate, considering Scandrick, 28, is coming off the best season of his career, having recorded two interceptions and nine passes defended last season.

Without Scandrick, the Cowboys will likely look to cornerbacks Morris Claiborne, 25, and rookie Byron Jones, 22, to line up opposite of Brandon Carr.
