Scandrick (hand) was a limited participant at the Cowboys' practice Thursday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even practicing on a limited basis is good news for Scrandrick after not playing in the Cowboys' Week 2 blowout loss to the Broncos. Dallas' injury issues at cornerback were exposed by Trevor Siemian on Sunday, and if Scandrick is able to play it would provide a big boost as the Cowboys face the Cardinals.

Scandrick (hand) is taking part in Thursday's practice, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Once the Cowboys wrap up their first practice of the week, the team will announce whether Scandrick was a full or partial participant, but either way, it seems he's trending toward suiting up for the Monday night matchup with the Cardinals. Scandrick missed the Cowboys' Week 2 blowout loss to the Broncos while recovering from surgery to address the fractured hand, which didn't go unnoticed in a game that Denver quarterback Trevor Siemian tossed four touchdown passes. Scandrick's likely return in Week 3 should help bolster a Cowboys secondary that could be without the services of its other starting cornerback in Nolan Carroll, who remains in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Scandrick (hand) won't play Sunday against the Broncos, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

This news was expected, but now that it's official Scandrick can focus on getting ready for Week 3. In his place, second-year Anthony Brown, who recorded 55 tackles (40 solo), eight pass breakups and one interception in 2016, will fill in.

Coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that Scandrick (hand) is not ready to practice, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as while Scandrick wouldn't rule himself out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the coaching staff was pretty set on sitting the cornerback for Week 2. With his inability to practice, expect Scandrick to be held out this weekend, but he does hope to return by Week 3 at the latest.

Scandrick (hand) will not rule himself out for Week 2's game against the Broncos and hopes to return for Week 3 at the very latest, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported Monday morning that Scandrick will not play Week 2 against the Broncos, but it appears as though the cornerback is trying to make a quick return to the field. He called himself day-to-day and said he wants to play if he can tolerate the pain. Expect an update later in the week regarding his status for this weekend.

Scandrick will have a plate inserted into his fractured left hand Monday and has been ruled out for Week 2's game against the Broncos, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

He previously broke the hand in 2012, missing the final five games of the season, but this injury doesn't appear to be as serious and Scandrick may only miss one game. In his absence, more responsibility will be put on young Cowboys cornerbacks like Chidobe Awuzie.

Owner Jerry Jones said Scandrick fractured his hand Sunday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scandrick left Sunday's game against the Giants with a hand injury and won't return, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

A thin cornerback group loses its only player with a solid track record, though the Giants' offense hasn't shown any real potential with Odell Beckham (ankle) sidelined. The Cowboys are left with three healthy cornerbacks -- Nolan Carroll, Anthony Brown and Chidobe Awuzie -- active for Sunday's game.

Scandrick is returning to form this offseason and is prepared to compete for starting role, Jon Machota of Sports Day reports. "My time is now, and I ain't looking over my shoulder, wondering what's going to happen," Scandrick said. "I'm just going out every day and trying to get better, trying to get back to where I was. I felt like I was an ascending player when I tore my ACL and I'm going to get back to that."

EDGE Analysis

Scandrick dealt with a plethora of injuries last season, sidelining him after two consecutive career years. The Cowboys made a point of adding young talent to their secondary, drafting Chidobe Awuzie in the second round of April's draft and Jourdan Lewis in the third, leaving some to wonder if Scandrick's time would be up in Dallas. However, the veteran has been playing outside corner and nickelback with the first team defense through OTAs and minicamp. Look for more updates on the position battle to come throughout training camp.
