Anthony Spencer To Have Knee Surgery

There’s more bad news for the Dallas Cowboys defense.

They’ve already lost defensive end Tyrone Crawford for the season and defensive tackle Jay Ratliff for the indefinite future and now they’ll also be without defensive end Anthony Spencer for a while. Spencer aggravated a bone bruise in his left knee as the Cowboys opened up training camp, an injury that the Cowboys didn’t think was severe although Spencer admitted surgery was a possibility.

Todd Archer of reports that it is more than just a possibility. Archer reports that Spencer will have surgery on the knee later this week. The recovery time is expected to be between two-to-four weeks for the player who has received the Cowboys’ franchise tag in each of the last two seasons.
