Cowboys' Scandrick injured, tells coach it's torn right ACL

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Dallas cornerback Orlando Scandrick left practice at training camp with what he told his secondary coach he believed was a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Scandrick went down working against rookie receiver Lucky Whitehead on Tuesday and was carted off the field. The Cowboys were awaiting results of an MRI.

Secondary coach Jerome Henderson said Scandrick told him, "It's my ACL. I know it. It's gone."

The eighth-year player became the team's best cornerback as Brandon Carr struggled in coverage and 2012 top-10 pick Morris Claiborne couldn't stay healthy.

Scandrick has played 102 games with 48 starts. He had a career-high two interceptions each of the past two seasons.
