Cowboys linebacker Anthony Spencer would love nothing more than to get back on the field with his teammates so he could be ready for Week 1.

However, the microfracture surgery on his knee is still giving him problems to where he may not be ready to go when the season starts.

“We’re eyes wide open on this,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the Dallas Morning News. “I won’t be totally surprised if he starts the season on PUP. Anthony thinks he might be back. I hope he does. We came into this knowing that he could be a PUP guy.”

After tallying 11 sacks in 2012, Spencer missed the 2013 season due to the knee injury. There's some definite concern as to whether he'll be able to return to his old self on the field.
