The Dallas Cowboys Pro-Bowl Tight-end Jason Witten suffered a broken rib during Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buc’s. This is just the most recent of a rash of injuries, the Dallas Cowboys have had to deal with.
Originally it was thought that Witten would be out til the game against the Washington Redskins, however, upon a second opinion the Cowboys are hoping to have the pro-bowler back in action this coming Sunday when they take on division leading New York Giants.
The Dallas Cowboys will need the services of Jason Witten if they want to win their next game. Brad Johnson is a shaky quarterback at best, and he has taken a liking to throwing to his check down receivers. Witten is a big target that Johnson (or Bollinger) could use as a safty net. While Wittens replace is solid, he is still learning and is not ready to step up and fill the very large shoes Witten would leave if out on injury.
