Report: Cowboys CB Scandrick has surgery on broken hand

The SportsXchange

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick underwent surgery Friday on his broken left hand, ESPN reported.

The chances of Scandrick returning to action this season weren't immediately known, a source told the network.

The injury occurred in the second quarter of the Cowboys' loss to Washington on Thursday when a teammate hit him while he was making a tackle. X-rays confirmed the fracture.

"Being optimistic, hopefully I'll be back," Scandrick said after the game. "If there is any way I can play, I will be back."

Linebacker Bruce Carter also was injured against the Redskins. He left the game in the fourth quarter with a dislocated left elbow.

Carter was scheduled for an MRI on Friday. The Cowboys are hoping a brace will allow Carter to play.

Among the Cowboys' injuries Thursday were defensive end Jason Hatcher (concussion) and wide receiver Miles Austin (strained hip flexor). Austin, who exited the game in the first quarter and didn't return, was to undergo an MRI on Friday.
