Witten begins to workout
Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was on the field working with trainers today at Valley Ranch. Brandon George of the Dallas News reports that Witten was working with the resistance cord at practice. If you remember when he first lacerated his spleen on August 13th he was told to stay idle for seven to ten days, so even this little bit is a positive sign. I still think it would be a shock if Witten was on the field for the season opener.
Cowboys tight end Jason Witten isn’t idle anymore. He was working on the resistance cord with an athletic trainer during the early part of the team’s Monday morning practice at Valley Ranch.
Witten was told he needed to be idle for seven to 10 days after he lacerated his spleen during the Cowboys’ first preseason game at Oakland on Aug. 13. His status for the season opener Sept. 5 at the Giants is still in doubt. He’ll learn more about his condition when he visits a doctor Tuesday. (Dallas News)
