OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys are hoping the first two days of training camp aren't a trend.
It looks a lot like last year when injuries decimated a defense that couldn't hold up late in a season that ended just short of the playoffs.
Defensive end Anthony Spencer can't shake a troublesome knee problem, and backup Tyrone Crawford is out for the season after tearing his left Achilles tendon during the first full workout of camp.
Defensive tackle Jay Ratliff strained a hamstring during the conditioning test.
Tony Romo's starting guards - Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings - are sidelined for now. So is backup Ronald Leary.
But defensive lineman Jason Hatcher says worrying about a replay on injuries is like a ``cancer for the team.''
