The New York Giants will be without right tackle David Diehl (thumb) and running back Andre Brown (IR) on Sunday night, but they aren't the only team that's hurting. Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com reported on Friday that Dallas Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) will also be ruled out for their week one matchup.
Spencer had arthroscopic left knee surgery on July 25th and has been unable to practice since then. And although he and the team remained optimistic that he could play on Sunday night, Spencer admitted a recent setback.
“It’s doing better,” He said earlier this week. “I had a little setback some time during the weekend. … The swelling was there for a day in it was gone.”
The seven-year veteran noted that he could possibly participate on a limited basis Friday, but in light of Broaddus' report, that now seems unlikely. Instead, the team will likely shut him down in hopes of having him return in week two against the Kansas City Chiefs.
In 90 career games, Spencer has made 361 tackles and 32.5 sacks. And in two games against the Giants a season ago, Spencer had 12 tackles and one stuff.
