Dallas Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer made his first pro bowl a season ago. The 29 year old is a key cog to the D in Big D. Over the summer, Dallas used their franchise tag on him, signing him to a one-year guaranteed salary of $10.6 million. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, Spencer is done for the season due to a knee injury.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spilled the beans during a radio interview, revealing that Spencer needs microfracture surgery on his knee. Without any setbacks in rehab, Spencer should be healthy sometime in January or February.

"Here's a case of a guy, you almost have to tie him up to get him off the field. He was so diligent in his rehab," Jones said during his radio show. "The individual that I have the most empathy for is Spencer because of the type of person he is."

Spencer will be a free agent at the end of this season. Has he played his last game in a Cowboy uniform?
