Cowboys | Jason Witten does not need surgery

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten (spleen) will not need surgery for a lacerated spleen. He is questionable for the team's Week 1 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Witten and his draft value, unless he suffers some sort of setback between now and the start of the regular season. Even though he's not a lock to play in Week 1, without surgery, he should be able to return shortly thereafter if he misses the opener. It could take him several weeks to get up to full speed, but consider him a weak No. 1 TE or strong backup or flex option.
