Three months ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick shattered a finger. Now, he’s suffered the same injury that Rocky Balboa avoided for his entire boxing career until he stepped into the ring with Apollo Creed.
Scandrick has broken his nose.
Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News writes that, while diving in practice, Scandrick “damaged cartilage in his nose,” which sounds roughly as tough as saying “oops.” As far as the men in the audience (to which some of the commenters will surely say, “and Florio”) are concerned, Scandrick broke his nose.
We wonder how Scandrick’s nose looks. Mick would likely call it an improvement.
