CB Orlando Scandrick out of against 49ers with high ankle sprain, will use oxygen chamber for fast return

Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick echoed owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday when he said he will miss Sunday’s game against the 49ers with a high ankle sprain.

 But Scandrick conceded no more, saying everybody heals differently and he is hoping for a fast return from an injury he said he suffered on the second play of the game but wasn’t sidelined until 15 plays later the second quarter.

 High ankle sprains are usually four week injuries.  Scandrick is expected to be in a walking boot for seven to 10 days. He says he is going to use an oxygen chamber to help with the healing process.

 “I’m obviously upset,” Scandrick said. “I feel like I was making strides as a player. It’s a minor setback. I’m going to be back and pick right up where I left off.”

 The Cowboys are hoping cornerback Terence Newman is ready to go against the 49ers after missing opener and the entire preseason with a groin injury. The Cowboys worked on veteran cornerback Frank Walker on Tuesday and might sign him as insurance.

Man, we need Scandrick. He is our best corner, but I don't want him to rush back and end up being out longer.
