IRVING Before Jason Witten was medically cleared to play in the season opener last week, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the seven-time Pro Bowler was already cleared to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.
Witten played 53 of the offense's 68 snaps against the New York Giants, and that number should increase against the Seahawks.
But that doesn't mean the Cowboys medical staff won't continue to monitor Witten's recovery from a lacerated spleen.
"I think we have to monitor him," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Monday. "We have to see how he feels. We anticipate him being able to practice today and go forward. We have to keep checking in with him and he has to communicate with us.
"You know, it's hard for us to tell if he's doing OK. He just has to communicate that with us and we'll make the necessary adjustments. But we anticipate him being able to practice."
Witten was on the field for the media portion of Monday's practice.
BEST OF MAXIM
According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, even though Cowboys tight end Jason Witten played in last week’s opener against the Giants, it doesn’t mean he’s in the clear just yet.
“Even though Jason Witten played in last week’s regular-season opener at the New York Giants 23 days after suffering a lacerated spleen does not mean the seven-time Pro Bowl tight end is 100 percent...
I have long been a Romo-basher so even I was surprised that I ended up falling on this side of the debate but after taking a deeper look I realized that Troy Aikman may have been right. Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo is better than Aikman was. Now I know Aikman made this comment way back in March of this year so this argument played out months ago but after watching Romo...
You have probably already made your mind up about Dallas Cowboys starting QB, Tony Romo. He is usually one of three things to NFL fans: He is a very good quarterback who probably won’t win the Big One (remember when people said this about a certain pair of Manning brothers?), or that he is an [...]
Last week: 17 (+2)
The Cowboys beat the Giants because Tony Romo had one of the best games of his career. However, they committed 13 penalties, which could have easily derailed them, but Tony Romo wouldn’t let it happen and kept coming up with big throw after big throw. They’ll be right in the NFC East mix, where all 4 teams are evenly matched, but they’ll have...

It was great having football back last weekend! Drafts are over and the craziness that was week #1 is now in the books. Now comes the hard part. Deciding which of the several breakout stars of week 1 to grab or just leave alone. However, the pickups made before week 2 are usually the most important for grabbing potential studs. Study carefully...
With an extra few days to work with, let's spend one morning pondering the building of the roster from a game-day perspective. Not only must a team decide how it is going to work its way down to the 53 players that they exclusively own, but they must also then sort through the injuries, match-ups, and game plan to determine which 46 they bring to the sideline on Sunday.
Tight end Colin Cochart was waived by the Cowboys. Cochart was claimed on waivers from the Bengals on Sept. 1 and kept on the 53-man roster in case tight end Jason Witten couldn't play in the opener at New York. Cochart wasn't needed because Witten played, and he didn't travel with the team to New Jersey. The Cowboys did not make a corresponding move to fill the...
An embarrassing moment on national television for Shy Anderson might end up with him getting the last laugh.
After NBC cameras caught the son-in-law of Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones cleaning Jones' eyeglasses in the owner's suite in New York during the teams games against the Giants, Anderson quickly became a viral joke by the next morning.
Everyone wanted to know who Jerry...
According to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett indicated that he expects tight end Jason Witten to be himself this week after not being a factor at all during last week’s win over the Giants.
Garrett on Witten being better this week: we expect Witt to be Witt.

Ridge High (Basking Ridge, N.J.) class of 2014 quarterback Connor Hughes camped at Rutgers and Penn State over the summer and was invited to a game in State College, Pa. He is also hearing from several other BCS schools and he spoke to FOXSportsNEXT about his recruitment.
Dallas – Momentum: No team needs a better start to their season than Dallas, and no player needs a better first few weeks than Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Every week 1 game for Romo is like starting a new diet or fighting adolescent acne…it needs to go well early for him, or it’s not going to go at all. Not to overstate a single win, but that divisional victory over...
