Alex Albright is ready for his opportunity if Anthony Spencer can't go

Alex Albright has been a tight end, inside linebacker and outside linebacker since arriving as an undrafted free agent in 2011. He might have a first this week -- starter.

Albright has worked with the first-team defense in Anthony Spencer's absence this week, sharing time with Victor Butler. Butler started against the Bears when Spencer missed the game with a strained pectoral muscle, but Butler made only one tackle. (Spencer is questionable after being limited in practice Friday.)

"It’s a good opportunity for me," Albright said. "I’m really excited about it. Vic might come in or Kyle Wilber might come in. We’re such a strong group that once someone goes in, it’s all about the team, and they have the support of everyone."

Albright had few opportunities on defense last season, ending his rookie year with two tackles. But he was a valuable special teams player with 14 special teams tackles last year.

In the first two games this season, Albright played one play on defense and participated in 38 special teams plays before injuring his neck. He was inactive the past two games.

"It seems like it's forever since I've been out there," Albright said.

Is this guy the clown that cost the Cowboys a kickoff return for a TD?
