According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has been medically cleared to play in tonight’s season opener against the Giants.

This is great news for the Cowboys and quarterback Tony Romo, now he’ll have his favorite target on the field with him.
I would think the Giants prepared all week as if Witten was going to play and they have the linebackers to match up with him as well.
