    As the Dallas Cowboys get ready to leave Oxnard, Calif., for Houston to take on the Texans on Saturday night, the team can add one more injury to its growing list of battleworn players.

    Cornerback Orlando Scandrick damaged his nose during the afternoon practice session on Thursday. The accident happened during a team scrimmage. Team trainers are calling it a "nose contusion."'s Matt Barrie, who is in Oxnard, said Scandrick made a play on an errant pass and hit the ground, which caused the injury.
