The Dallas Cowboys will be without Orlando Scandrick for the remainder of the season after placing the defensive back on injured reserve due to a hand injury. Dallas promoted defensive tackle Rob Callaway from their practice squad to replace to Scandrick on the roster, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Scandrick suffered the injury against the Washington Redskins on Nov. 22 when he was hit by a teammate during a catch. Scandrick missed the Cowboy's 38-33 win over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday because of the injury.

Scandrick has started three games for Dallas this season and has 21 tackles in 11 games overall.

The Cowboys secondary is giving up 220.2 passing yards per game which ranks 10th in the league. Dallas as a team only has only five interceptions this season, which ranks last in the NFL.

The Cowboys have won three of their last four games to improve to 6-6 on the year.
