Although Cowboys outside linebacker Anthony Spencer is listed as questionable for tonight’s game against the Bears with a pectoral injury, he appears to be ready to play.

Cowboys V.P. Stephen Jones told 105.3 The Fan that the team expects Spencer to play tonight.

I think he should be good to go,’’ Jones says. “You always wait to see how they warm up. But he should be fine.’’

Spencer has started all three games this season and has two sacks. If it turns out that he can’t play, Victor Butler would take his place.

UPDATE 1:49 p.m. ET: Shortly after Jones made his comment, a report emerged that Spencer will not play.
