Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick said Wednesday he’d miss six to eight weeks after surgery on his left hand.

That means he’d be out until the playoffs, if the Cowboys got there.

“I just want to come back and help my team anyway that I can,” Scandrick said, via Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.

Scandrick said he also had a bone bruise and sprained ligaments in his wrist.

With five weeks of regular season left, it’s an optimistic move on the Cowboys’ part to keep him up, and with a 5-6 record, one that probably won’t matter in the least.
