Anthony Spencer practiced on Thursday for the first time all week and owner and general manager Jerry Jones believes the outside linebacker will be available when the Cowboys take on the Ravens in a week six matchup in Baltimore this weekend--but he admitted on Friday that the pectoral injury with which Spencer is dealing is a little concerning to the organization.
“A little concerned about Spencer,” Jones told the Elf and Slater show on 105.3-FM The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “We’ve got several days here before we play, but how he does over the next few days will determine how much he plays. He’ll play in our opinion.”
To be sure, Dallas seems to be treading with caution where Spencer is concerned. He practiced once last week after missing the Bears game, but then got the entire week off, until the aforementioned workout on Thursday. Spencer was once again on the sidelines as practice on Friday.
The Cowboys’ hesitance to throw Spencer back out there is understandable, because the Purdue product has been pretty, pretty good this year. In three games, Spencer has 21 tackles, two sacks and two tackles for loss.
