Last week, some doubt was cast on whether Cowboys veteran tight end Jason Witten would be able to play in the team’s matchup with the Falcons. He had suffered two sprained ankles and a sprained knee in the victory over the Eagles, it was reported, meaning he was not a lock to play.
Of course, he did, because he is Jason Witten. He played, caught six passes for 65 yards, and came out on the other side feeling just fine, saying he has put “all that”--all that meaning two sprained ankles and a sprained knee--behind him.
“Early in the week it was a little tough trying to get some of that swelling out, but by the end of the week it felt really good,” Witten said, per Todd Archer ESPN Dallas. “The trainers did a good job helping me out, so yeah, I think I’m past all that and feel good.”
Through three games this season, the 10-time Pro Bowler Witten has 21 catches for 181 yards and two touchdowns.
