Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is out for the rest of the preseason with a spleen injury that caused internal bleeding, Dan Patrick reported on his radio show.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio writes that Witten's status for the regular season opener against the Giants is still unknown. The tight end could still need surgery.

The 30-year-old Witten is one of Tony Romo's favorite targets. He has started 126 of Dallas' last 128 regular season games.

In 2011, Witten caught 79 passes for 942 yards. Witten had made seven straight Pro Bowls until last year. His best season came in 2007 when he caught 96 passes for 1,145 yards and seven touchdowns.
