The Dallas Cowboys re-signed defensive end Anthony Spencer as they look to rebuild their defensive front, but they may not be able to see Spencer on the field any time soon. According to reports, Spencer is still recovering from an October microfacture surgery and he could potentially find himself on the physically-unable to perform list to start the season.
Spencer is hoping that he can contribute at some point during the season and he is hoping that he will be ready by the end of training camp.
“This injury it’s really uncommon, you rarely see guys coming back from it,” Spencer said, via ESPN.com. “So, I’m really not looking at any type of timetable. I’m just on my body schedule; where my body is, that’s where I am.
“I have to listen to my body,” Spencer said. “I’ve gotten to where I’m listening to my body in rehabbing and doing the things at the pace of my body. Just try to do that and be as patient as possible. That’s one of the biggest things with the surgery (that) I’ve read (is) just being patient and I’m not pushing it pass that.”
It will be interesting to see if or when Spencer is able to return to the field this season, but the good news for Dallas is that they spent a second-round pick on Demarcus Lawrence, who could be an impact pass rusher right out of the gate.
