Spencer on target to return for Week 2

"I feel good, we'll see how I feel in the morning," Spencer said after the workout at AT&T Stadium. "Everything I've been doing has been getting better every day. I haven't had any setbacks. If everything keeps going the way it's going to this week I should have some time out there."
Spencer has been out of action since having arthroscopic knee surgery on July 25. He took snaps with the second-team unit on Wednesday, indicating that if he does play against the Chiefs it will probably be in spot duty and not as a starter.
Spencer said it will probably take him a couple of games until he is able to start and play a full game.
"I'm just going to play it by ear, see how many plays I had today, try to add a little bit more tomorrow and a little bit more on Friday," Spencer said.
He practiced with a brace on the knee and said he will likely wear it for a few games.
Asked if it felt strange to wear the brace, Spencer said: "Having pads on today felt strange. That was a little different, too."
In addition to acclimating to football conditioning, Spencer said his first practice showed that he needs to sharpen his technique, too.
"It felt good, a little rusty. I mean, my get-off and everything is just something I've got to work on right now," Spencer said.
