OXNARD, Calif. - Cowboys rookie defensive lineman Marcus Spears, one of the team's two first-round selections, injured his right leg during morning practice on Friday.

Spears was placed on a cart and taken from the field. "It doesn't look good," said Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones.

Jones said Spears would have an MRI exam conducted on his ankle, knee and groin. http://www.cowboysplus.com/topstorync/stories/080605dnspospears.4416e070.html

OXNARD, Calif. - Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said late Friday afternoon that first-round draft pick Marcus Spears will be out four to five weeks with a torn MCL, high ankle sprain and a groin pull.

"The good news as I stand here right this minute is there's a chance he could be back for the opening game of the season," Jones said. The Cowboys open the regular season against San Diego on Sept. 11.

Coach Bill Parcells said Spears had someone roll onto the back of his knee after a handoff to running back Anthony Thomas during team drills.



JJ came back and said later it could be for 2-4 wks.

Never a good thing when you hurt three things in you leg at one time.

LOL!!! I dont know. I know I sprain mine about 3 years ago and the Dr said it a high ankle sprain. It seemed pretty low to me though.
