Cowboys say Anthony Spencer is ready to play

Dallas Cowboys linebackers Anthony Spencer and Victor Butler celebrate after a blocked field goal against the Seattle Seahawks in the second half of their NFL football game in Arlington Reuters

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.

    Just have a feeling Claiborne is getting his First Career Pic Tonight. And it’s Cutler, so maybe two.

    I love Cowboy fans defense of this guy, “He’s good against the run though.” Yeah that’s real important in a passing league, playing opposite a future HOF linebacker that consistently faces double teams, you can’t even sniff double digit sacks or consistently pressure.

    Butler represents a very capable back up that actually may provide more pressure on Cutler.

    It will be a tough game for Cutler, hard to complete a pass with your hands around your neck. Maybe he will just yell at the O-Line. Better yet, just have the Center keep the ball and copmplete the passes, they don’t need Cutler.

    Stephen Jones being the noted judge of players’ physical readiness that he is. After all, that’s how he got his job, isn’t it? I mean, the fact that his father is the team owner has nothing to do with it, right?
