Witten making good progress from spleen injury
Coach Jason Garrett says doctors have monitored the Pro Bowl tight end's tests and blood work since he sustained a lacerated spleen after taking a hard hit in the preseason opener Aug. 13. The coach says everything has come back positive and that "everything is going fairly well."
The Cowboys have less than two weeks before their regular season opener Sept. 5 at the New York Giants.
Witten was standing on the sideline watching practice Thursday when the team worked out at Cowboys Stadium.
Garrett says the Cowboys will have a better idea about moving forward with Witten after he sees the doctor Tuesday.
