IRVING, Texas (AP) - Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has a broken
rib but may play Sunday when Dallas bumps heads with the NFC East
Witten was injured in the first quarter of last weekend's win
over Tampa Bay and sat out most of the second half. According to a
posting on the team's Web site, he could wear added protection
against New York.
The Cowboys were already without Pro Bowl quarterback Tony Romo when the NFL leader in yards and catches among tight ends got hurt.
Rookie Martellus Bennett, from Texas A&M, and Tony Curtis back up Witten.
Cornerback Anthony Henry tore his quadriceps against the
Buccaneers, but the Cowboys Web site says team officials are
optimistic rest and treatment will be enough for him to play
Sunday. If Henry can't play, Orlando Scandrick would start opposite
fellow rookie Mike Jenkins.
