Chris Spencer: Spencer played much of the 2007 season with damaged cartilage in his left shoulder and a dislocated right thumb. The shoulder forced Spencer to snap right handed. Doctors repaired both injuries shortly after the end of the season. Spencer reported to training camp, but was forced out of action with a back injury. He started week 4 of the preseason and then started the first 11 games of the regular season. Spencer first appeared on the injury report prior to week 12, but started. It was the last game he would play all season. Seattle placed Spencer on IR on December 3. Jim Mora is giving Spencer the occasional break to protect his back, but he has otherwise fully participated in training camp and is as healthy as he's been in years.
