Cowboys receiver Miles Austin has left the Thanksgiving Day game against Washington because of a right hip strain, and cornerback Orlando Scandrick suffered a break in his left forearm. Scandrick said he will have surgery on his hand but hopes to return before the end of the season. “We know what’s wrong with my hand, but we won’t know [about my wrist] until I get in surgery,” Scandrick said.
