Scandrick will be eligible to return to action on October 5 against the Houston Texans.

Entering his seventh season in the NFL, Scandrick started 15 of 16 games for the Cowboys last season. He had 64 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble.

His absence will further weaken a Dallas defense already missing key players due to injury.
