According to Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will undergo a CT scan on Tuesday to check his spleen and determine whether he can play in Wednesday’s season opener.
“Tight end Jason Witten will have a scan of his spleen on Tuesday before the Cowboys leave for New York to see if he has a chance of playing.
“If the scan shows he can play, Witten said he will play – no ifs, ands or buts,” wrote Mendez.
“If I get cleared, I’m playing,” he said Sunday at Valley Ranch. “It’s the only way, I believe, you can approach the game. I think people know that’s the only way I’m playing. This is what you play for. It’s an opportunity, especially where we’re at and how much work we’ve put into this situation.”
