Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick calls himself day to day after undergoing successful surgery Monday night to have a plate inserted in his left hand to repair a fractured bone.
Scandrick, who suffered the injury in the second quarter of the 19-3 season opening victory against the New York Giants, has not ruled himself out of Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos.
It’s a pain tolerance issue at this point and he said Tuesday, “I feel good honestly.”
Again, he says he is day to day and plans to return by the Sept. 25 Monday night game against the Arizona Cardinals at the latest, if he can’t go against the Broncos.
Anthony Brown replaced Scandrick in the slot against the Giants with rookie second-round Chido Awuzie playing the outside opposite Nolan Carroll.
Awuzie tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter against the Giants and is also day to day.
The good news is that rookie third-round pick Jourdan Lewis should practice this week and be available for the Broncos game after being sidelined all of training camp and the preseason with a hamstring injury.
