Cornerback Orlando Scandrick hasn't ruled himself out for the season, as he could possibly return if the Cowboys make the playoffs. But outside of that miraculous possibility, there is little chance he plays again in 2012 after undergoing surgery Friday to repair a fractured left hand.
The normal rehab time for his injury is six to eight weeks. Scandrick will return to the doctor in a couple of weeks to have the cast removed and determine how the bone is healing.
He said he also has a bone bruise and sprained ligaments in his left wrist.
Scandrick said he is not going to rush back, potentially hurting himself or the team. He said he believes in Mike Jenkins and Vince Agnew to get the job done at nickel corner until he regains his health.
