Jason Witten's status for Wednesday night's game against the New York Giants has been stuck at "doubtful" since he returned to practice for the Cowboys following a lacerated spleen injury. He did travel with the team and as tweeted by ESPN's Chris Mortensen, has been asking the Cowboys to let him sign a medical waiver to play against the Giants. The Cowboys have been refusing him, according to Mortensen's tweet.
[Update: Witten has denied to NBC the waiver story.]
Though he has been cleared to play in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks, it looks like we won't know whether or not the seven-time pro bowler will take the field for the Cowboys until kickoff on Wednesday night.
