Garrett hopeful Witten 'can do something' as practice week starts Saturday, but declines to say if spleen has stopped bleeding

Coach Jason Garrett said tight end Jason Witten has been catching balls and getting more extensive work on the field.

“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.
