Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has torn his ACL and MCL and will miss the 2015 season, according to reports.
Multiple reports indicated a torn ACL was likely the case after Scandrick was carted off the field at practice Tuesday. The veteran corner suffered a knee injury during an on-field collision with receiver Lucky Whitehead and had an MRI Tuesday night. Scandrick reportedly told coaches and teammates that he had torn his ACL. The Cowboys would not confirm until viewing the results of the scan. Ian Rapaport reported earlier that the MRI did show a torn ACL.
Scandrick, 28, was Dallas' top cornerback last season and signed a one-year extension worth $9.5 million in May. He recorded 55 tackles and two interceptions last season. He was drafted by the Cowboys in the fifth round of the 2008 draft.
