    Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer will undergo knee surgery expected to sideline him 2-4 weeks, per ESPNDallas.

    Guess he won't get much practice in before the start of the season then.

    Not a big deal. The good thing is that Wilber will get a ton of reps.

    I'm glad Wilber is going to get reps and I'm also glad we didn't resign him.

    Does anyone else wonder if he put off the knee scope so it wouldn't hurt his contract talks? It should be no big deal in a month but hard to believe he just started having pain after the 1st day of practice.

    For 11 million we could have had 2 players of Spencer's caliber.

    He's on the wrong side of 30 in a new NFL landscape where that's the last place you want to be when you're up for a contract. Spencer has incentive to do nothing other than ball-out this season.

    At least it's only for the preseason. Non-issue!

    So after all the speculative spazzing that Mike Fisher did about this. Even suggesting that his leg could collapse like the Kevin Ware dude, it's just a scope..

    smh

    At least it's happening now and not in-season.

    I agree and in the meantime if he misses 3 weeks he will still get back in time to get some snaps in pre season. Worse thing would be to sit and wait only to end up having it done as we get into the reg season.

    @NFL_ATL: Jason Garrett confirms surgery for Anthony Spencer later this week. Rough start for Cowboys D to camp.
    Clark Judge ‏@ClarkJudgeCBS 4m
    Garrett says he expects Spencer to have no trouble catching up. "we just wanted to make sure we got it cleaned up."
    Brandon George ‏@dmn_george 4m
    Jason Garrett: We don't think it's a severe thing. We just wanted to get it cleaned up sooner than later.
    Jon Machota ‏@********** 3m
    Jason Garrett on Spencer knee injury: "We don't think it's a very severe thing. We don't feel like he'll be out too, too long."

    From what I read, the knee problem developed in June.

    Exactly.

    I don't view it as a big deal.
