The Cowboys defensive line could get a much-needed bump in depth on Sunday with the return of defensive end Anthony Spencer, “could” being the operative word.
Spencer returned to practice for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on July 25, and says, per the Dallas Morning News, he’s “getting ready to play” against the Chiefs in Kansas City on Sunday.
According to the Morning News, though, Spencer will be limited if he does play.
The Dallas defense is coming off a mixed bag of a performance against the Giants last Sunday. On the one hand, they forced five turnovers. On the other, they gave up 31 points and 450 yards through the air, which led to new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin calling for his unit to be better this week.
Spencer being around, even on a limited basis, should help in that effort.
