Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick is going to work harder during his suspension than he had to during training camp.
Scandrick, who was suspended four games for violating the league’s PED policy, said he intends to be ready when he walks back in the door, and will be putting himself through two-a-days each day while he’s away from the team. He’s going back to Los Angeles to work with the personal trainer he uses in the offseason.
“I’m not going to do anything but train and prepare myself to play every day,” Scandrick said, via Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “I’m going to come back ready.”
While it’s impossible to duplicate football practice without the benefit of a team, he will be doing defensive back drills and catching tennis balls out of a machine in addition to his strength and conditioning.
With a little luck, none of those sessions will be in Mexico, and he’ll always know what he’s drinking.
