Dallas Cowboys defensive end and franchise player Anthony Spencer is expected to make his 2013 debut after sitting out week one. While he will be back on the field and playing he won’t be starting or playing a majority of the snaps.

“If I go on Sunday, it won’t be like the starting role, playing 60 or 70 snaps,” Spencer said after practice Friday, via ESPN Dallas. “It’ll be limited. I’m not sure what that is right now, but it will definitely be limited.”
“I feel better than I did on Wednesday,” said Spencer. “I feel a lot more fluid in the stuff that I’m doing and just moving around better. … I felt really good today.”
Spencer like DeMarcus Ware is making the transition from outside linebacker to defensive end as the Cowboys switch from a 3-4 defense to 4-3 scheme under new coordinator Monte Kiffin. It will be exciting to see how the defense performs when Spencer is in, especially how he frees up his other teammates along the defensive line.
George Selvie has been a suitable back up in his place and will start again this week.
