Jason Witten is back at practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jason Witten has returned to practice for the first time since his spleen injury.

Analysis: This is good news for Witten owners and the probability that he can suit up against the Giants on Wednesday has certainly increased. Witten will practice in a limited capacity for now, then he might be able to ramp up the work. Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reported that Witten is likely going to be questionable for the game, so his credibility might make fantasy owners want to go with other alternatives. The Wednesday night game certainly hurts, but Witten will be far from a must-start even if he is able to give it a go. Witten's hypothetical absence would mean more targets for Dez Bryant and Miles Austin.
