Dallas Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer could be out for the rest of the season according to owner and general manager Jerry Jones. He has been fighting a knee injury for the majority of the summer and even had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in late July that held him out for almost the entire training camp. Now Jones is saying that Spencer could need microfracture surgery essentially ending his season.

The rough part for the Dallas Cowboys is that he was given the franchise tag and will get paid very well for not starting a single game and only partially playing in two games this season. George Selvie has performed well in his place and has praised Spencer for his coaching during games.
It will be interesting to see how this impacts his contract negotiations.
