Jason Witten: Cowboys Hopeful for Week 1 Return

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: The Cowboys are currently hopeful that Witten -- who suffered an internal injury during Monday's preseason contest -- will be available to play against the Giants in Week 1, ESPN.com reports.

Recommendation: Other sources have indicated, more specifically, that Witten suffered a spleen injury. In any case, he is undergoing further testing Tuesday and will be continue to be evaluated. If Witten is forced to miss extended time, John Phillips would likely fill in as the starter at tight end for the Cowboys.
