Jason Witten subject of E:60 feature

IRVING, Texas -- There isn’t much we haven’t learned about Jason Witten in his 12 years with the Dallas Cowboys. He has played in nine Pro Bowls. He has won the Walter Payton Man of the Year award. He is the Cowboys' all-time leader in catches. The only tight end in NFL history with more catches and more yards than Witten is Tony Gonzalez. Tony Romo went so far as to call him the best Cowboy of all time recently. ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap will present an E:60 feature on Witten tonight at 7 CT that speaks not only to his on-field success but his difficult upbringing in an abusive household...

It's about DeMarco Murray's plays, not carries

IRVING, Texas -- When asked about the workload he has received this season, DeMarco Murray did not want to expand on the feelings he expressed earlier in the week. Suffice it to say, he feels good, even if a little illness kept him out of Wednesday’s practice. He was back for a full practice Thursday and will play Sunday against the New York Giants. The Cowboys want to limit Murray’s touches, not just his carries. In addition to 159 carries, Murray has caught 21 passes, tied for second on the team with Jason Witten.

Milestones keep coming for Jason Witten

IRVING, Texas -- As tight end Jason Witten left the locker room after the Dallas Cowboys’ 30-23 win against the Seattle Seahawks, a football was tucked under his arm. “Gotta go give to my boys,” Witten said, looking over to where his sons C.J. and Cooper were standing off to the side. The football marked the 900th catch of his career and it also marked the first touchdown of the season, a 3-yard strike from Tony Romo in the second quarter.

Jason Witten is in a better place in his return to Seattle

IRVING, Texas -- Jason Witten has not had many poor days in his career, but the last time the Dallas Cowboys played at CenturyLink Field on Sept. 16, 2012, was one of them. The final stats show Witten caught four passes for 58 yards in the Cowboys’ 27-7 loss. It doesn’t show the three drops. “Long game; probably one of my worst games,” Witten said. “The big drop down the middle on the seam. I think every player has moments in their careers, and that’s definitely one of mine.

Fantasy Now: Jason Witten

What should you expect from Jason Witten this week versus the Seahawks' defense?

Cowboys trust in tight ends' blocking

IRVING, Texas -- How much do the Dallas Cowboys trust Jason Witten as a blocker? Unofficially he was asked to block Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt 12 times without any help in their 20-17 overtime win. That’s a lot asking a tight end, even one of Witten’s caliber, to block who the Cowboys called the best defensive player they will face this season by himself. “That's what they do with Watt and they do it to everybody,” coach Jason Garrett said.

Offensive snaps: Texans at Cowboys

IRVING, Texas -- Jason Witten, who's in his 12th season, is the only skill position player aside from Tony Romo to be on the field for each of the Dallas Cowboys' 348 plays this season. Although his primary responsibility thus far this season has been blocking, he showed Houston he can still be a threat in the passing game. His 34-yard reception on a seam route was his longest of the season and helped steal momentum from Houston after the Texans had taken a 10-7 lead.
