In a Dallas Cowboys injury update, Anthony Spencer is looking less and less likely to make it to the week one game on Sunday night against the New York Giants. According to ESPN on Sept. 6, Spencer has not returned to practice yet this week.
Anthony Spencer had off-season knee surgery and had a setback earlier this week when his knee began swelling once again. With Jay Ratliff out until week six at the earliest and Ben Bass out with a dislocated shoulder, the Cowboys defensive line is looking shaky.
Jounreyman defensive tackle Nick Hayden will start in place of Jay Ratliff and the only defensive tackle backup on the roster was Landon Cohen. Caesar Rayford, who Dallas picked up in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts this week, will probably play some inside, despite coming to the team as an OLB-DE player.
With Spencer out, it looks like George Selvie, a player who was a long shot to even make the Dallas roster, will start opposite DeMarcus Ware. Things have to be looking very good for New York Giants running back David Wilson right now.
Other Cowboys injuries this week include running back Lance Dunbar and safety Danny McCray, both of whom missed practice this week as well.
