The Dallas Cowboys franchise man, defensive end Anthony Spencer, made his 2013 regular season debut yesterday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Spencer has been recovering from a knee surgery in late July and missed most of training camp recovering from the injury, but he said before the game he’d play in a limited role and he did.
“We went in just trying to play on third downs, but the better I felt the more I wanted to do,” Spencer said, via ESPN, “so we did a little bit extra.”
I don’t know about extra, all in all Spencer played roughly 30 snaps. End George Selvie started for him again.
“And it feels so good after I put it on,” Spencer said, referring to the ice pack he put on his knee.
Spencer got two tackles and a quarterback hurry in the performance in the game. So far we don’t know what his role will be in Week 3, whether he’ll start or stay in a limited role with maybe more than 30 snaps.
