The Dallas Cowboys have plenty of questions after Sunday night’s loss to the San Diego Chargers, but we can be happy that the team escaped the second preseason game of the year unscathed from an injury standpoint--for the most part, that is.
Defensive end Marcus Spears left Sunday’s exhibition following the Chargers’ first touchdown, a play on which the veteran suffered a strained groin.
By the end of the game, Spears could be seen in flip flops and short on the Cowboys’ sideline, though, according to reports, he was walking without any noticeable limp. The injury occurred when Spears got his foot stuck in the turf at Cowboys Stadium as he was pressuring San Diego’s Phillip Rivers.
Spears told reporters afterward that he wasn’t sure if he would be available for Saturday night’s matchup with the Vikings in Minnesota, but aside from that, he downplayed the seriousness of the injury.
“Just a little strain,” Spears said, per ESPN Dallas. “Nothing too serious.”
