Defensive end Anthony Spencer said the bone bruise on his knee that is keeping him out of practice happened during the conditioning test, is the same kind of thing that sidelined him in the OTAs, and that it’s a concern _ so much so that he Cowboys are considering minor surgery that could keep him out a few weeks.
Per his agent Jordan Woy, a final decision on surgery has yet to be made.
Right now the team is taking it day by day.
"It’s concerning to me. It’s bothering me right now," he said. "I really don’t know what else to do, so I’m just taking it day by day."
Spencer said he doesn’t have much choice right now except to rest this most recent injury, which he described as "a contusion-type thing on my tibia/fibula area."
Spencer missed time in the offseason because of a hyperextended knee. A magnetic resonance imaging exam showed a bone bruise and Spencer said it’s pretty much the same thing now.
Coach Jason Garrett doesn’t think it’s a severe injury but said the team is looking at all their options.
"We don’t think it’s a severe thing," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett
said. "We’re just trying to come up with what we think is the best option
here in the next few days."
