IRVING, Texas—Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten feels like he is getting back to his normal self after suffering a lacerated spleen.

Witten said Wednesday that he didn't take any shots to that part of his torso during the season-opening victory against the Giants a week earlier. He started the game and played 53 of the Cowboys' 68 offensive snaps. He caught two passes.

Witten says he is still recovering from the Aug. 13 injury, but doesn't anticipate any setbacks. He will still be wearing extra padding when the Cowboys play Sunday at Seattle.

Witten feels good when he's practicing and running around. He says what he's dealing with isn't like an ankle or hamstring injury that can linger for weeks.
