    IRVING – Dallas Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer needs microfracture surgery on his left knee that likely will end his season, owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday on his radio show.

    Spencer missed two of the first three games, including Sunday’s 31-7 victory over St. Louis, after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery July 25. Jones told Dallas’ KRLD-FM that he learned Monday night of the need for microfracture surgery, which could also be career-threatening.

    After missing the opener, Spencer logged 34 snaps in a 17-16 loss at Kansas City in Week 2. He practiced only once last week and was inactive for the game against the Rams.

    Before learning of the microfracture surgery, coach Jason Garrett expressed optimism Monday that Spencer could return this season to play “50, 60 snaps a game.”

    “I think it’s realistic,” Garrett said. “It’s a long season. Remember, he was hurt for a couple of games early last year. You just keep banging away and keep trying to get better each and every day and week by week and hopefully he will be healthy and ready to roll.”
