Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten Getting Closer To 100%


Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was limited in the Cowboys season opening win against the New York Giants but he is working hard to see an improved role in their week two contest against the Seattle Seahawks.

Witten’s progress as he recovers from a spleen injury has been very positive and the tight end appears to be closing in on 100% which would be dangerous for opposing defenses.

I guess you can never say never as far as always (being) 100 percent,” Witten said, “but I think it’s one of those deals where you don’t know when those situations are going to come up. I’ve got padding there. I’m going to do those things, but the good news is unlike an ankle or a hamstring or some things where it can linger in there for weeks this is something that I feel good when I’m out there practicing and running around.

“I don’t see any setbacks that will get in the way here and (I can) go back to being the normal self, get to practice and get the stuff going for a big game this week.”

Cowboys fans should be thrilled with the way that Witten is coming along with his recovery. The Dallas offense is dynamic with their outside threats of Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Kevin Ogletree and the addition of a healthy Witten will just take things to another level.

    It won’t take it to a higher level, it will take it back to a lower level. You know, the level where Romo has his crutch and leans on it all game long. The level when the 3rd wideout never even sees the ball.
