SAN ANTONIO --- We've talked shoulder pads, injuries and even babies; but now the talk of Cowboys camp: facial hair.
Linebacker Anthony Spencer sporting a new beard. We asked the 6'3," 260lb guy if he was trying to look a little more intimidating.
"I thought I look nice, what are you talking about?" he says. And is it hard to keep up with? "Nah, I just throw a comb threw it a couple times in the morning and I'm good," Spencer said.
Beyond the new beard, Anthony Spencer is sporting a more athletic physique. He's lost some weight for this season. He's trying to prove Demarcus Ware isn't the only one a quarterback has to watch for. In this his third year with the Cowboys, he explains how comfortable he is with Coach Wade Phillips style.
"He allows us to make plays and that's the biggest thing. He doesn't restrict us too much and he wants the havoc off the edge in this defense. And that's basically what we're trying to do," Spencer said.
Defensive End Jason Hatcher out this morning with an elbow injury. The morning practice was light; mostly a warm-up for rookie players.
