Marcus Spears injured in practice

News
Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears injured his right knee during Friday morning's practice. He suffered the injury when some players rolled over his leg during 11-on-11 drills. Spears walked over to the training table, but he had difficulty bending the joint. After some examination, the rookie was carted off the field.

The Cowboys are counting on the first-round pick to be a force in their new 3-4 scheme, and obviously those plans could change due to this injury. We'll provide more details when they become available"
If you are an LSU fan, you are hoping it's not serious. Marcus is a class guy.

RE: Marcus Spears injured in practice

... and Corey Webster along with Travis Daniels are having great camps. Daniels is already considered the starter because of injuries, but he's definately earning it from what I've been reading. Webster is battling Will Allen for the job.

I wish we woulda drafted Webster. He will probbeat out Will Allen before the year is out. Good to hear Travis is playing well too. He was what, a 4th rounder? You heard anything on Wilkerson?

Nope... but I'm pretty sure he'll beat out someone for their starting spot. He's a stud. If it weren't for that injury he had last season, there would be no way in hell he would have lasted until the 4th.

And if you are in a keeper league, and drafted him with your number one pick, the you're really hoping it's not serious.

Okay BNB, you are gonna have to explain to me why anyone would take Spears with their first pick in a keeper league. Even WhoDat isn't that bad at fantasy is he?
