Jason Witten: (Spleen) Not Yet Cleared To Play In Opener
Update: Witten (lacerated spleen) has yet to be medically cleared to play in the Cowboys' regular-season opener, which is Wednesday against the Giants, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Recommendation: The report adds that even if Witten is eventually medically cleared to play this coming week, that doesn't guarantee that the Cowboys will turn him loose in Week 1. After the Cowboys open their season Sept. 5, the team's next game isn't until Sept. 16, so the team must weigh the benefits and risks of him playing him out of the gate versus him taking additional time to heal up before absorbing punishment in games.
