Scandrick (groin) is unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason game at Seattle, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Scandrick's groin has held him out of practice the last two days, the Cowboys don't figure the injury to be too serious. In fact, Scandrick claims that Dallas is simply being cautious by keeping him on the sideline. The team reiterated Tuesday that Scandrick did not pull anything in his groin, but is rather just dealing with soreness. All bets are that the 29-year-old is 100 percent for the team's season opener.

Scandrick has looked good through the early part of training camp as he returns to action from a torn ACL, Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Working in a two-minute drill Thursday, Scandrick has perfect position on Cole Beasley in the slot and broke up an attempted pass from Dak Prescott. Scandrick's loss last season was overshadowed by the Cowboys' other injuries, but their secondary and overall team defense will get a big boost with his return.

Scandrick (knee) has been medically cleared to resume all football activities, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scandrick is in line to participate throughout training camp as he returns from a torn ACL, while it appears realistic he could be at 100% health by Week 1 of the regular season. The Cowboys' cornerback corps also includes Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr, with Scandrick slated to fill in as the No. 3 option.

Scandrick (knee) declared, "I'll be totally fine. I see myself working my way into training camp and being full-go very, very soon," the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scandrick supported his claim by pointing out that he'll be 13 months removed from the injury when the season begins. Wisely, the cornerback has been patient in his recovery this offseason and hasn't tried to force himself back into action, keeping his eyes on a healthy return to training camp. His return can only help Dallas' encore after allowing the fifth-least passing yards in the NFL during 2015.

Scandrick's recovery from a torn ACL is going well, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he could be healthy enough to participate in some offseason activities, the Cowboys plan on treating Scandrick much the same way they treated Sean Lee the year before as he recovered from his own torn ACL, with a focus on getting him ready for the start of training camp. Lee came back and played 14 games in 2015, missing one due to a concussion and the season finale with a hamstring strain, so the team is confident that with a similar program, Scandrick will be at full strength for Week 1.

Scandrick (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Scandrick out for the year due to a torn ACL, Morris Claiborne is expected to start outside, and Tyler Patmon is the favorite for slot duties. The injury could also lead to some extra snaps for first-round draft pick Byron Jones, who worked at both safety and cornerback during training camp.

Scandrick has agreed to a revised contract with the Cowboys, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

Scandrick briefly skipped voluntary workouts in protest of a contract that pays him far below his market value, but he eventually decided to join his teammates in Dallas while negotiating with management. It doesn't appear that negotiations were too tenuous, and Scandrick should be back as a starter this season, even after the Cowboys drafted Byron Jones in the first round. Between Scandrick and Dez Bryant, the Cowboys have vocal leader on both sides of the ball.

Scandrick is in line to join his Dallas teammates for voluntary workouts on Monday, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

Scandrick, who is seeking a new contract, had been staying away from the Cowboys' facility since the team's workouts began on April 20. His plans to join the team's workouts hint at progress on that front, with Archer suggesting that the cornerback could have a deal worked out by the end the coming week.

Scandrick is in Dallas to meet with the Cowboys about his contract situation, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Scandrick has been working out on his own in California, as he's displeased with his current contract situation. He's slated for a base salary of just $1.5 million in 2015, following a 2014 campaign in which he was the Cowboys' most reliable cornerback. Assuming an in-season holdout is avoided, Scandrick figures to enter Week 1 as a starter, even after the Cowboys drafted Byron Jones in the first round.
