Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is still a game-time decision to play tonight's season opener against the New York Giants, but sources say he is willing to sign a medical waiver to play, reports ESPN.com. 

Witten has been sidelined with a lacerated spleen and has not participated in practice since he was injured in the Cowboys first preseason game against the Oakland Raiders.

Witten has informed the team he is willing to sign a medical waiver that would not hold the Cowboys or team doctors liable in case he re-injured his lacerated spleen during the NFC East matchup, according to team sources.

The Cowboys won't accept any waiver as a means to Witten playing in the game.

Witten did make the trip to New York and is listed as doubtful. Witten has missed only one game in his career due to injury
