EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Cowboys tight end
Witten will be making his 140th straight appearance, dating back to his rookie season, 2003, when he missed a Week 6 contest against Philadelphia after breaking his jaw. He underwent a CAT scan on Tuesday and was officially listed as doubtful, which is meant to project a near certainty that the player will be out, though he was cleared by doctors.
Witten had been running and catching passes for over a week, but had not engaged in any contact drills.
Inactive for the Giants are wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, cornerback Prince Amukamara, running back Da’Rel Scott, guard Mitch Petrus, defensive end Adewale Okomo and tackle James Brewer.
