ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is making good progress recovering from a spleen injury, and is scheduled to see another doctor next week.

Coach Jason Garrett said doctors have monitored the Pro Bowl tight end's tests and blood work since he sustained a lacerated spleen after taking a hard hit in the preseason opener Aug. 13. The coach said everything has come back positive and that "everything is going fairly well."

The Cowboys have less than two weeks before their regular-season opener Sept. 5 at the New York Giants.

Witten watched practice from the sideline Thursday when the team worked out at Cowboys Stadium.

Garrett said the Cowboys will have a better idea about moving forward with Witten after he sees the doctor Tuesday.
