Anthony Spencer questionable for Monday night

Robert Turbin, Anthony Spencer AP

Both of the Cowboys starting outside linebackers appear on the team’s final injury report before their Monday Night Football date with the Bears, but only one of them has a chance to miss the game.

DeMarcus Ware is listed as probable and will be trying to trigger another fit of anger by Jay Cutler toward left tackle J’Marcus Webb. Anthony Spencer might not be on the other side, however. Spencer is listed as questionable after missing practice all week with a pectoral muscle injury. If he plays, he will likely need to wear a harness to help protect against further injury. If he doesn’t, Victor Butler will see an uptick in playing time.

It looks like starting safety Gerald Sensabaugh will be able to play after missing the win over the Buccaneers with a calf injury. Sensabaugh is listed as probable, as is wide receiver Miles Austin. Punter Chris Jones is doubtful, which likely means that we’ll be seeing Brian Moorman make his Cowboys debut after joining the team early this week. Whichever man winds up in the lineup would do well to avoid Devin Hester.

The Cowboys also ruled out five players. Defensive tackle Jay Ratliff will miss his fourth straight game with an ankle sprain and center Phil Costa, linebacker Alex Albright, defensive end Kenyon Coleman and safety Matt Johnson are all out as well.

    Big lost if he doesn’t play, but if forte is out too it’ll be a fair tradeoff of injuries, if forte plays though this is a huge blow to dallas

    Pains me to say it.. but purely from a betting stand point, I would be comfortable talking DAL -12 at LEAST in this one

    Butler can step up.

    Lol, Forte is injury prone we are good if he plays or not, Sean Lee will be all over him if he does, Butler or who ever we put there should step up, Ware is playing no matter what

    Would rather have butler in there anyhow , spencer has been questionable in his play too ,was ok stopping the run , but we need another edge rusher to help ware

    Yeah Vic Butler is faster , but Spence can hold that run too his side no doubt

    While Spencer is very good defending the run, he isn’t as good of a pass rusher as Butler. This actually could mean more QB pressure on Cutler.

    Bears need to play ball…run and play action…Cowboys need to hope backups can step in and play at a decent level.

    Ratliff and Costa have been out forever it seems. Hurrrrry!

    Chicago has never had a problem beating Dallas or is that a forgotten fact. Cutler will have a big night an Win this game… Forte will play an Hester will score on a punt return. Cowboys stadium has always been good to the Bears

    Spencer has been playing pretty well from what I’ve seen. He’s on pace for 10 sacks this season, which isn’t bad when you’re playing opposite D. Ware.

    Gives Butler a chance to prove he is an everyday player>
