As Iron Man reported first, Anthony Spencer did get knee surgery to remove a bone chip in his right knee. The promising young linebacker could miss the first two games of the season.
Last week, Kevin Burnett had a similar procedure. We are already aware that Terence Newman is not 100 percent, either.
All of this should be alarming if we measure the play of the backups in these first two pre season games, which has been downright awful. I’m not going to scream the sky is falling, and I am not even really that worried, because the Cowboys are stocked with good linebackers and the defense is stronger than the offense in my opinion.
But we really do have to pray that the injuries are limited this year because I do not have a ton of faith in the second team players. Do you?
