Orlando Scandrick tossed from practice after pushing an official

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick pushed an official during Sunday’s practice, earning an ejection.

“It was frustration,” Scandrick said. “He was in my way. It was frustration. …I was pursuing the ball. He tried to brace me. I kind of like pushed him out of my way.”

Cowboys defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin said he didn’t see the play and would have to watch it on film to comment. But Scandrick, a six-year veteran, said he doesn’t need anyone to talk to him: He understands what he did was wrong.

“It can’t happen,” Scandrick said. “Nobody needs to address it. I know what happens in this league, and what can’t happen, and I can’t touch the official.”

Scandrick was chastised by teammates Will Allen and Jason Hatcher before walking to the sideline, where he knelt by himself with a towel covering his head.
