Henry Melton has hamstring strain

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys could see the returns of defensive end Anthony Spencer and linebacker Justin Durant Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, but they could be without defensive tackle Henry Melton and linebacker Rolando McClain.

Melton suffered a hamstring injury in the second half of Sunday's win against the St. Louis Rams. He was able to remain in the game but was spotted on the bench during the game with his leg wrapped tightly. Melton missed the final three preseason games with a groin injury.

McClain was inactive because of a groin injury suffered in a Week 2 win against the Tennessee Titans. He did not practice last week.

Durant has not played the last two games because of a groin injury, but worked out hard before Sunday's game against the Rams and coach Jason Garrett reported late last week Durant was making good progress.

Spencer, who has not played since Week 2 last season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee, practiced twice on a limited basis last week and said after the Rams' game he would push it more this week.

"He's worked very hard the last few weeks just to get back," Garrett said. "We'll see what he's able to do on Wednesday."
