The Cowboys don’t really need an excuse to take defensive end Marcus Spears out of the starting lineup now.
The 2005 first-round draft pick by Bill Parcells will miss 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL. We first mentioned the possibility of the injury last night, and the Cowboys’ fears were confirmed by further tests.
Jason Hatcher looks like the next man up in Dallas, and Stephen Bowen should also pick up snaps. Spears could find playing time hard to come by when he returns.
