Jerry Jones, builder of JerryWorld, inventor of JerryWipes, hip-hop pizza empresario and Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager, said today that defensive end Anthony Spencer may have to have season-ending microfracture surgery.
Jones revealed the news on his KRLD radio show, saying he’d learned of it Monday evening.
“We’ve had another setback,” Jones said. “Anthony Spencer — we’ve learned late yesterday and this morning — is probably going to have to have some more surgery, which is a real setback.”
Spencer, the team’s franchise player, was unable to play Sunday, but was in on 34 snaps in Week 2. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in July and told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram last week that loose cartilage remains an issue.
“It’s just real frustrating for this to be the same problem,” Spencer said Sunday (via the Dallas Morning News). “But it is what it is. I’m just handling it the best way I can.
“Hopefully it gets better. I felt pretty good during the game a week ago. It’s just I haven’t done that type of work, that much work with it, so it’s just sore from the game, I believe. We’re just going to play it by ear. Hopefully it gets better. If it doesn’t, then I’m just going keep doing what I got to do to get ready for the games.”
