Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, like fellow starters Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray, are expected to miss the preseason opener, according to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News
Insight: At 32-years-old and in his 12th season we trust he'll be ready when the bell rings and doesn't need much preseason action. Witten is a second-tier fantasy tight end (Jimmy Graham and a healthy Rob Gronkowski are on top).
 
11/3/2013 5:42:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten tied a season-high with 10 targets Sunday against the Vikings.
Insight: Witten recorded his second 100-yard game and fourth TD of the year. The tight end is on pace for 33 fewer targets than last season.
 
12/23/2012 5:21:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten's six catches Sunday gave him 103 on the season, the first time he has reached 100 receptions in his career. It's the most catches in NFL season by a tight end, surpassing Tony Gonzalez' 102.
Insight: Witten's season started slow after he battled a ruptured spleen in the preseason. He caught just eight balls on 20 targets for 76 yards over his first three games but has reeled in 95 catches for 907 yards in his last 12.
 
10/1/2012 11:42:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten turned in his best performance of the season in Monday's loss to Chicago, catching 13 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. He only had eight catches in the first three games combined.
Insight: Witten was plagued by drops and penalties in the first three weeks but he showed up big in Week 4. Fantasy owners will like the four catches, 48 yards and a touchdown he had on the Cowboys' final drive when the game was already out of hand.
 
9/12/2012 8:40:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (lacerated spleen) was a full go in Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN Dallas.
Insight: Witten caught just two passes in Week 1 as a surprise active, but he said he's feeling better and doesn't expect the injury to linger like an ankle or a hamstring injury. You can start him comfortably in Week 2; he'll undoubtedly perform better now that he's a full part of the team's game plan.
 
9/5/2012 11:55:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (lacerated spleen) started but he only caught two passes for 10 yards.
Insight: Witten was on the field for much of the game but he didn't play a factor in the passing game. It was worth the risk playing him since he is usually Tony Romo's favorite target.
 
9/5/2012 8:03:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (lacerated spleen) is listed as active for Wednesday's game against the Giants.
Insight: Witten has been out since the first preseason game with a lacerated spleen but he was cleared by doctors to play Wednesday. Witten was believed to be doubtful for the game so this active comes as quite a shock to the fantasy community, but Witten has been lobbying to start, even going as far as saying he would sign a waiver releasing the Cowboys and the NFL from liability if he were to re-injure himself. Get him in the lineup.
 
9/5/2012 10:10:00 AM
Description: According to a Profootballreport.com source, Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was cleared for Week 2, but will miss Wednesday's night's opener against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
Insight: Witten saw the doctor on Tuesday morning, though we haven't heard of the results. You should be making an alternate plan as Witten will be inactive the game.
 
9/4/2012 1:30:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's NFL season opener against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, according the the team's website.
Insight: Witten saw the doctor on Tuesday morning, though we haven't heard of the results. He's planning on making the trip to New York, but you should be making an alternate plan in case Witten is inactive the game.
 
9/2/2012 2:36:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (lacerated spleen) is "extremely unlikely" to play in Wednesday's season opener, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.
Insight: Witten resumed practicing on a limited basis Saturday but the team's first game is three days away. He's likely to be questionable for Week 2. John Phillips will start in Witten's place.
 
9/1/2012 8:59:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (lacerated spleen) returned to practice Saturday, according to ESPN.com.
Insight: Witten hasn't practiced since suffering a lacerated spleen on Aug. 13. The Cowboys tight end had a scan of his spleen Aug. 28 which revealed the injury was healing, but he was not cleared for contact. He's still questionable for Week 1.
 
8/31/2012 5:29:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten still hasn't been cleared for contact with five days remaining until the team's season opener against the Giants. Witten, listed as questionable for Week 1's matchup with the Super Bowl champs, has been out most of training camp with a lacerated spleen.
Insight: Despite Witten's "questionable" label, we're guessing Dallas will play it safe and wait another week before allowing their star tight end to return to action.
 
8/30/2012 10:53:00 AM
Description: Dallas tight end Jason Witten is expected to be a game-time decision for next Wednesday's season opener against the Giants. Witten has missed most of training camp with an injured spleen.
Insight: Witten is always a threat for 1,000 yards receiving when he's healthy and he's one of Tony Romo's most trusted targets. If he isn't in the lineup on Wednesday, you can expect the seven-time Pro Bowler to be back for Week 2's game versus the Seahawks.
 
8/22/2012 5:07:00 PM
Description: The Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will not require season-ending surgery on his lacerated spleen but that doesn't mean he'll be cleared for Week 1.
Insight: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Witten is questionable for Week 1 against the Giants and is more likely to play in Week 2 against Seattle.
 
8/16/2012 7:58:00 PM
Description: The Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has a "slightly lacerated" spleen and will miss the rest of the preseason.
Insight: According to NFL Network reporter Albert Breer, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the team will re-evaluate Witten after an 8-10 day period to determine if he needs surgery. Witten's status for Week 1 is very much in jeopardy.
 
8/15/2012 1:55:00 PM
Description: The Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten injured his spleen in the most recent preseason game against Oakland and according to a Mike Florio report at ProFootballTalk.com will miss the remainder of the preseason.
Insight: Witten hasn't been ruled out for Week 1, yet, but there are no guarantees that he'll be ready to go when the whistle blows. Witten hasn't missed a game since 2003 and has been a valuable fantasy tight end for the past eight seasons averaging 82 receptions, 945 yards and five touchdowns per season during that span.
 
9/11/2011 10:43:00 AM
Description: The Dallas Cowboys and TE Jason Witten agreed on a 5-year contract extension for $37 million... and $19 million of that is guaranteed.
Insight:

Description: Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten grabbed his left hamstring in practice Tuesday after catching a pass near the sidelines. SOURCE: ESPN DALLAS
Insight: The good news is... Witten was able to return after missing just four snaps. The bad news is, hamstring issues don't normally go completely away. They will monitor the situation and play it very closely to the vest, but Witten should be fine.
 
12/26/2010 12:01:00 AM
Description: Witten had eight receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown against Arizona on Saturday night.
Insight: Witten is finishing 2010 strongly, with 25 catches and four touchdowns over the last four games, and should absolutely be one of the top fantasy tight ends heading into 2011. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/19/2010 11:55:00 AM
Description: The Cowboys are expected to use TE Jason Witten as the focal point in the passing game with WR Roy Williams likely out. SOURCE: ESPN DALLAS
Insight: Witten is a must-start even if Williams does play. He and Kitna have had great chemistry.
