Witten to start?

ESPN is reporting tight end Jason Witten of the Dallas Cowboys will have his spleen CT scanned on Tuesday – and his results will determine if he plays in the season opener against the New York Giants on Wednesday. The team isn’t sure if Witten will play in the first game even if Witten receives medical clearance – but Witten doesn’t seem on board with Jerry Jones’ suggestion to play the second week against the Seattle Seahawks.

On Sunday, Witten said, “”If I get cleared, we’re playing. 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.” The organization feels that four to six weeks recovery time is appropriate, which means the chances of Witten actually playing against the Giants is unlikely. Though Witten really wants to play, he realizes that it’s not really in his control. “The reality of it is spleen injuries are complicated. It got to the point where it didn’t need surgery. I think it healed quicker than people thought, but ultimately, medically it’s a quick turnaround. You look it up and a lot of times (recovery from a spleen injury) is a lot longer than this.”

“So I think it’s just they’ve got to feel comfortable on seeing what I’ve done. That’s why I’ve really tried to push it myself to try to speed up and — I don’t want to say convince, because ultimately, it’s in the scan — but put myself in every position to get that done.”

What do you think? Let’s hear your opinion!
