Orlando Scandrick suffered a concussion in the second quarter of Sunday’s 38-35 victory over the Colts in Indy, and now, his status for next week’s Sunday night match-up with the Eagles is in question. Scandrick was unable to return from the injury, but contributed largely in the little time he had with a pick-six off Peyton Manning to give Dallas a 17-0 lead in the first quarter.
Scandrick was sprite enough to participate in the team’s visit to Medical City Children’s Hospital in Dallas, and there, he told reporters that he was feeling better, but that whether he will be able to go Sunday is wholly unclear at this point. A battery of tests scheduled for Monday, however, should give the team some idea of the severity of the concussion, which will determine his availability.
“I'm feeling better, but I really didn't know what to expect,” Scandrick said, per the Dallas Morning News.
Scandrick was replaced on Sunday by rookie Bryan McCann, and one would assume that, should Scandrick remain on the sidelines Sunday night, that McCann would step back into that role.
