It remains unlikely that Cowboys tight end Jason Witten plays tonight.
But it’s not for a lack of trying on his part.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Witten has offered to sign a waiver that would take the team and its doctors off the hook for any liability if he can take the field.
However, the team doesn’t seem inclined to take him up on the offer, willing to let him sit another week after suffering a spleen injury in the preseason.
He did make the trip to New York, according to Mortensen, and the team’s calling him a game-time decision.
