Updating a previous item, Dallas Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer (knee) will be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list soon, but he still will not be ready to play in Week 1, according to owner Jerry Jones. The team is optimistic Spencer can play as soon as Week 2.
Huddle Up: The defensively-challenged Cowboys can certainly use Spencer, who missed basically all of last season after recording a career-high 11 sacks and 95 total tackles in 2012.

Dallas Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer (knee) was placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform List on Thursday, July 24.
Huddle Up: Spencer is one of the few proven commodities for bedraggled Dallas D -- which last season finished last in the league in yards allowed, 30th in points allowed, 30th vs. the pass and 27th against the run - - and the 'Boys obviously need him to get healthy sooner rather than later.

Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team would not be surprised if DE Anthony Spencer (knee) starts the 2014 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: IDP leaguers take note as Spencer could be in line to miss more action after missing all but 1 game this past season. He did have a career high 11 sacks in 2012, but that's going on 2 years now.

Updating a previous report, the Dallas Cowboys re-signed DE Anthony Spencer to a one-year deal worth as much as $3.5 million. The deal does not include a signing bonus.
Huddle Up: After letting DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher go, the Cowboys are banking on a big bounce-back season from Spencer, who was limited to 1 game last season because of a knee injury. He did post a career-high 11 sacks in 2012, but may not be ready for the start of training camp this summer -- thus, the incentive-laden, 1-year deal.

The Dallas Cowboys could consider re-signing free-agent DE Anthony Spencer (knee) to a short-term contract if they are comfortable with his recovery.
Huddle Up: Provided he can pass a physical, someone -- if not his former team -- is sure to take a flier on Spencer, who had a career-high 11 sacks and 95 total tackles in 2012 before being limited to 1 game this past season.

Updating an earlier report, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said DE Anthony Spencer (knee) might need microfracture surgery and could be done for the season.
Huddle Up: Spencer, who had 11 sacks and 95 total tackles a season ago, has only seen action in 1 game so far -- contributing 2 tackles in Week 2 at K.C. -- and it sounds like the Cowboys may need to prepare to go on without him the rest of way.

Dallas Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer (knee) is expected to play Week 2. He will not start at defensive end but likely will receive limited snaps behind DE George Selvie.
Huddle Up: Selvie has been playing well for the Cowboys but he's no Spencer. The Dallas defense caused six turnovers in last week and it should only get better once Spencer is healthy. They have a pretty good matchup Sunday versus a Kansas City offense that wasn't really tested in its Week 1 romp of Jacksonville.
