Report: Cowboys TE Jason Witten could miss game against Falcons

Wednesday September 23rd, 2015

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is treating two sprained ankles and a sprained knee, and his status for Sunday’s game against the Falcons is still uncertain, reports Ed Werder of ESPN. 

Following Dallas' 20–10 win over the Eagles in Week 2, Witten stated that he was “fine,” calling the injuries “typical football stuff.”​

Dallas is already without wide receiver Dez Bryant and lost starting quarterback Tony Romo when he sustained a fractured left clavicle against the Eagles.

Witten, 33, was drafted by the Cowboys in 2003 and has played a total of 193 games with the team over his career. He hasn't missed a game since Oct. 19, 2003.

Witten has played 189 consecutive games, only bested by Texans punter Shane Lechler who has played 208 straight games.
