Anthony Spencer says if he plays, he'll be limited

The Dallas Cowboys franchise player, defensive end Anthony Spencer, has been trying to get back and ready to play for a while now. It is looking more and more like he could make his season debut this Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Spencer resumed practicing this week for the first time since getting surgery on his knee in late July.

If he does play, don’t expect him to start.

“If I go on Sunday, it won’t be like the starting role, playing 60-70 snaps,” Spencer said, via the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram. “It’ll be limited. I’m not sure what that is right now, but it’ll definitely be limited. …I’m going to be backing guys up.”

Defensive end George Selvie has been filling in for him and doing well. Despite that Selvie isn’t considered a threat to Spencer’s starting spot.

Spencer was practicing again today.
