IRVING (105.3 THE FAN) — The Cowboys desperately need pass-rushing help as the regular season approaches. They might not receive it in week 1, but help is on the way.
Owner Jerry Jones believes that defensive end Anthony Spencer, who he says will not be placed on PUP, could be ready by week 2.
“As close as we are to week one, he won’t be ready,” said Jones with Shan & RJ on 105.3 The Fan. “He will be on our active 53-man roster. We wouldn’t be doing that if we weren’t planning on him being on the field immediately.”
Jones says Spencer, who had microfracture knee surgery in October, is progressing at a “surprisingly fast pace”.
“We feel good enough about his repairs,” said Jones. “He’s got that microfracture. We feel like that has completely grown in, the way that that injury heals. It’s a question of him feeling good about his cuts.”
