Report: Cowboys uncertain whether Anthony Spencer will be healthy in time for training camp

anthony spencerEven though the Dallas Cowboys re-signed defensive end Anthony Spencer to a one-year deal,  they don’t know if he’ll be healthy in time for training camp,  according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com.

Spencer played in only one game last year because of a knee injury that required microfracture surgery. The hope is that he will be healthy by the time training camp begins in late July. Spencer, the Cowboys’ first-round pick in 2007, visited with the Washington Redskins and New York Giants earlier in free agency.

The Cowboys’ offseason program began last Monday. Spencer has been rehabbing at the team’s Valley Ranch facility.

The Cowboys are uncertain whether Spencer will be available for the beginning of training camp, a source told ESPNDallas.com.

Spencer was turning into a heck of a player prior to micro fracture surgery.  The only problem now is that micro fracture surgery is the hardest thing for an NFL player to come back from.
