Nickel corner Orlando Scandrick suffered a broken nose at this afternoon’s practice. The injury is not expected to keep Scandrick out of Saturday’s game against the Houston Texans.

This is the second injury that Scandrick has suffered this training camp. Earlier in the summer, he shattered his left index finger.

According to ESPN Dallas, Scandrick made a diving play to deflect a pass to Terrell Hudgins on the sideline. The athletic trainers rushed over as Scandrick remained on the ground and covered his face with a blood soaked towel.

Rookie corner Akwasi Owusu-Ansah took the reps in the first-team nickel package.
