Orlando Scandrick Successful Knee Surgery

Updated: August 28, 2015

Dallas – The Dallas Cowboys are suffering a devastating blow to their defensive line with their starting right cornerback Orlando Scandrick being out for the season. During training camp the 28-year old Boise State University fifth round draft pick was attempting to tackle rookie Lucky Whitehead and went down in pain and had to be carried off the practice field.

On Thursday Scandrick underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL. It is being reported that the surgery was successful but these injuries will sideline Scandrick until the 2016 season.


“Orlando is a person who we care a great deal about,” head coach Jason Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “The coaches care about him, his teammates care about him. He’s going through a hard time. That’s challenging for him. We’re going to be there for him. We’re going to be there for him every single day. I told him (Tuesday) he’s a young man, he’s a great athlete, he has a great feistiness and fight to him, so he’s going to come back better and stronger than ever.”

The question now is, will 2012 first round draft pick Morris Claiborne ready to take the reign.
