Jason Witten practices, despite concerns about spleen injury

Earlier this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that, after meeting with specialist, doctors haven’t cleared Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten to play.  One source characterized Witten’s chances of playing as “not good.” Doctors told Witten that while he may want to “tough out” certain injuries, this particular one is not the same type of injury. Witten could do serious damage to his body if he plays before being cleared by doctors.

Apparently, Witten is not listening to the doctors advice as he took to the practice field today.

It remains unclear whether Witten will play in Wednesday night’s opener against the Giants, but the fact that he is practicing, even in a limited capacity, is an encouraging sign that he’s making progress.

Witten suffered the spleen injury in the Cowboys’ preseason game against the Raiders, and initially there were concerns that he could need surgery and that he might even miss the entire season. But all indications recently have been positive, and Witten getting back to work on the field is another positive step.

  • payton is off the hook. SUPER BOWL? great quaterback.

  • payton, great quaterback, SUPERBOWL? YEA!

  • Brick-hand Sanders from the Steelers? Is Manning a receivers coach now? Manning was on his game. Weren’t the Chargers without their starting corners? Still played great. Broncos defense stuffing the Chargers running game was impressive. That 30 yarder floated in there nice. Is it me or does Peyton’s passes look like a 30 yard bomb? That crap won’t work in the playoffs when Ravens defenders are used to practicing against Flacco who throws 70-yarders.
