    Orlando Scandrick underwent surgery on Tuesday evening to repair a broken finger suffered at the team's organized team activities this week, an injury that will shelf the third-year cornerback for the rest of OTAs and mini-camp, multiple sources have reported.

    Scandrick broke the index finger on his left hand in drills on Tuesday afternoon.

    After undergoing surgery, doctors told Scandrick that the damage was more serious than initially thought. He will spend three to four weeks with a cast on the hand, and a pin in the injured finger, before returning.

    "I don't see myself catching any balls until camp starts," said Scandrick, per the Dallas Morning News.
