Injury issues are nothing new for Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick, and he’s already getting looked at tonight.

Scandrick left the field and went to the locker room after delivering a shot to Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard. He returned to the sidelines without a helmet, with his left wrist wrapped. The team announced he was out with a hand injury.

He was limited last year with hamstring issues, after missing the 2015 season with a torn ACL and MCL.

There was speculation about him being traded this offseason, but the Cowboys held onto him, hoping he’d lend some stability to a secondary hit by the departures of Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in free agency.

He was replaced by rookie Chidobe Awuzie when he left.
