Defensive end Marcus Spears will probably miss the rest of the preseason with a groin strain suffered Sunday against the Chargers.
Spears expects to be back in time for regular season opener.
"I’m doing fine," Spears said. "It’s a strain, so it’s going to take a while for it to get back. I know the moment I feel like I’m ready to go and I’ll be going."
However, he is frustrated that it will take away from him learning the new defense under coordinator Rob Ryan.
"I think anytime you’re missing practice at this time, you kind of miss a little bit, especially when you have stuff going in that you’ve never played before," Spears said.
