Earlier we told you that it was reported that Jerry Jones said on 105.3 FM in Dallas that defensive end Anthony Spencer was likely done for the season and he’d need micro-fracture surgery. We now have his full comments.
From Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News:
“We’ve had another setback,” Jones said on the New School show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “Anthony Spencer — we’ve learned late yesterday and this morning — is probably going to have to have some more surgery, which is a real setback.”
“It’s just real frustrating for this to be the same problem,” Spencer said as he exited the Cowboys locker room Sunday afternoon. “But it is what it is. I’m just handling it the best way I can.
“Hopefully it gets better. I felt pretty good during the game a week ago. It’s just I haven’t done that type of work, that much work with it, so it’s just sore from the game, I believe.
“We’re just going to play it by ear. Hopefully it gets better. If it doesn’t, then I’m just going keep doing what I got to do to get ready for the games.”
Spencer had arthroscopic surgery on his knee on July 25th and missed all of training camp and the season opener. He hadn’t played in a full game yet, just snaps in a limited role.
