OXNARD, CA (AP) – Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is hopeful that he will be ready to play in the season opener in three weeks.

Witten said Thursday that he’s “doing all right” while dealing with a lacerated spleen. He says the tough part is forcing himself to sit and rest, which doctors have said is the best way for him to heal.

The seven-time Pro Bowler was hurt in the preseason opener Monday night against Oakland.

While Witten says there’s no timetable for his return, he says he isn’t thinking about not playing in the season opener against the New York Giants on Sept. 5.
