“We are hopeful that he can do something as the practice week starts on Saturday,” Garrett said after Wednesday night’s final preseason game.
Garrett said Witten received a positive report from an evaluation Tuesday and that the spleen he injured in the preseason opener is healing.
But asked if the organ had stopped bleeding, Garrett said, “I don’t want to get into the specifics of all that, but he is making progress.”
The Cowboys begin practicing Saturday for their season opener against the New York Giants. It has been 17 days since Witten was injured Aug. 13 in the preseason opener against the Raiders.
Witten said, "I've got nothing," as he left the locker room after Wednesday's preseason game.
