Anthony Spencer sits out again

IRVING, Texas -- Anthony Spencer is not practicing for the third straight day because of a pectoral strain, which puts his availability for Monday’s game against Chicago in question.

Earlier in the practice week Spencer said he expected to play, but his status could come down to Monday’s kickoff.

Fullback Lawrence Vickers returned to practice after missing Friday’s workout because he was sick. Coach Jason Garrett said he expected Vickers to be full go for the Bears.

Safety Gerald Sensabaugh is practicing and took part in some special teams’ drills. He did not play last week because of a right calf strain and was limited in practice Thursday and Friday. Linebacker Alex Albright is also on the practice field.

Nose tackle Jay Ratliff (ankle), defensive end Kenyon Coleman (knee), center Phil Costa (back), punter Chris Jones (knee) and safety Matt Johnson (hamstring, back) are not practicing.
