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

Competitive 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.

Competitive 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.

Scandrick -- who was not present Monday for the Cowboys' first voluntary workout this offseason -- plans to continue working out in California until the team address his contract, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Scandrick, who signed a contract extension with the team in 2013, is slated to earn a base salary of $1.5 million in 2015. It remains to be seen whether this evolves into a contentious holdout down the road, but when he is on the field, Scandrick is a key member of the Dallas secondary. Moreover, in 14 games this past season, he provided some IDP utility by notching 55 tackles, two picks, two forced fumbles and a sack.

Scandrick returned to the lineup Sunday, recording five tackles.

Mo Claiborne had one of his better games as a pro on Sunday, so the competition is on for the starting cornerback spot opposite Brandon Carr. Given how many three receiver sets the Cowboys will likely face next week against the Saints though, expect both Scandrick and Claiborne to see plenty of action regardless of who gets named the starter.

Scandrick has been reinstated from his four-game suspension after the NFL finalized a new policy regarding performance enhancing drugs on Wednesday, NFL.com reports.

Scandrick will be immediately eligible to return to practice and play this week versus the Rams. The seventh-year pro recorded a career-best 64 tackles (59 solo) and two interceptions last season and should reclaim a starting cornerback position for the Cowboys. In a corresponding move, the Cowboys will place Darrion Weem on injured reserve to make room for Scandrick on their active roster.

With the NFL revising its drug policy Tuesday night, Scandrick is expected to be immediately reinstated from his four-game suspension, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

Assuming no last-minute snags in announcing the new policy, Scandrick could be back at practice as soon as Wednesday, with a return to action Sunday against the Rams. Scandrick would more than likely replace Morris Claiborne as one of the starting cornerbacks, giving the Cowboys' beleaguered defense a modicum of respectability.
