Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has torn his ACL and MCL and will miss the entire season, Scandrick reportedly told ESPN's Ed Werder via a text message.

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

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romotweeted his support for Scandrick, also fearing an ACL tear.

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.
