Damn. If Witten doesn't recover quickly from this injury, Dallas's entire season could be lost. Witten is an integral part of their offense.

That would be great if he missed the opener at least.

Oh well, best luck of him

Always liked Whitten, hope it's not too serious. I wanna see the Cowboys on their A game anyways so let's hope he gets healthy.

Witten is a class act and I hope he makes a full recovery.

Also, I want the Cowboys at 100% for the first game of the season.

It's not a matter of liking or not, and yeah true, but with a tough schedule.. I wouldn't complain too much about having a star team player out for 1 game against us.

I understand where you are coming from. It sounds like you want Witten to make a full recovery but not for the first game, which is understandable. I wouldn't be to broken up if he wasn't ready for the first game but I'll definitely want to see him make a full recovery.

I just don't want to hear any excuses from Cowboy Fans.

I know. We hear it way too much from teams that lose one player to injury, but when we have injuries, they say,"it happens"

I used to be one that said lets have them at their best so they have no excuses. however we were the team last season the opponents got to play without alot of our Star players. we were the team that had Nicks out, Tuck out, osi out, etc, ect, etc on and on and on. I am sure they didnt feel to bad about having to play us with 3 or 4 less starts on the roster vs them. If he is back he is back, if not then I fine with playing and beating them without him. we have already proved twice last season we can beat them with him.. so whats the big deal

Witten is an integral part of their offense.You know i think i know what play he got hurt on. i was watching that game. Romo was getting absolutely destroyed and the defense was barring down on him for another sack and he dumped it off to whitten on right in backfield with ton of coverage all over him and he got hit hard and driven back hard by McClain i think. I think in that case romo left him exposed and should have just thrown the ball away

Witten will not require surgery but is going to be out for the rest of the preseason it's doubtful he will play week 1.

Pretty big blow to the team. Not only is he a damn fine player but he is also a vocal leader.

Next man up, I guess.

I didn't see that play since I could only manage to watch this game in small doses. What a snooze fest.

In regards to Romo hanging Witten out to dry, is it on youtube or do you have a link to it somewhere?

Hope he's alright. The hit looked vicious when it happened.

Not an injury to fool around with, though. It almost cost our own Phil Simms' son's life...

Witten is a tuff SOB and until he's officially ruled out game one, i expect him to play

Thanks for posting this video.

It didn't seem like a devastating hit but Romo probably saw three players bearing down on Witten. If that ball was thrown a little higher, Witten might have been carted off in a stretcher.

in a meaningless preseason game (game 1 mind you) he almost cost his team dearly for the entire season by making that choice. that offense loses Witten and they would be in REAL TROUBLE

It would be funny if they struggled with Witten and injuries all season and Bennett does well with us.

Dez injured in practice today.
He's getting an MRI on his knee.
