Cowboys' Witten Doesn't Need Surgery

(August 22, 2012) -- Dallas Cowboys doctors informed tight end Jason Witten he will not need spleen surgery that would have ended his season, a source told ESPNDallas.com on Wednesday.

The bleeding in Witten's spleen has subsided, and doctors believe it now will heal on its own.

Witten still is aiming to return in time for the Cowboys' Sept. 5 regular-season opener against the New York Giants, but it is questionable whether he will be ready to play.

Witten is more likely to play in Week 2, when the Cowboys play at Seattle on Sept. 16.
