Cornerback Orlando Scandrick didn’t mince words in assessing his play after two games.

“I’m playing like [expletive],” Scandrick said. “I don’t really know what to say.”

Scandrick was beat for a touchdown on the Redskins’ opening drive of the second half, as Kirk Cousins hit Jamison Crowder for an 11-yard score.

In the season opener, Scandrick was beat three times for 66 yards, according to STATS, Inc.

Scandrick has been dealing with a hamstring injury of late and was questionable to play in Sunday’s game. He tested it out in pregame, though, and determined he was good enough to play.

Scandrick missed all of last season after undergoing knee surgery to repair a torn medial cruciate ligament and torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

“Yeah, but nobody cares at the end of the day,” Scandrick said of his injuries. “It’s did you win or did you not? So I don’t know what to say.

“It’s very frustrating. I’m not playing good football right now.”
