Witten caught both his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

After a big Week 1, Witten's been fairly quiet the last two games with Dak Prescott continuing to find Cole Beasley more often on shorter routes rather than looking the veteran tight end's way. With Dez Bryant (knee) potentially out next week in San Francisco though, Witten could see his share of Prescott's passes rise again.

Witten hauled in three of four targets for 51 yards in Sunday's win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

It was a steep decline from Week 1's nine-catch effort, but Witten remains a valuable commodity even with his long-time battery-mate Tony Romo shelved. Just as Witten's rapport with Romo made the veteran tight end valuable, Witten's reliability should make him a continued safety net for rookie Dak Prescott.

Witten caught 9-of-14 targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Witten was rookie Dak Prescott's favorite target Sunday, leading the team in all receiving categories. While Witten has never been a big touchdown scorer, it's reasonable to assume that he'll be heavily involved in the Cowboy's passing attack, as Prescott learns how to read NFL defenses. Next week, Witten will face the Redskins.

Witten restructured his contract Thursday with the Cowboys, turning $5.5 million of his $6.5 million salary into a signing bonus, Mark Ortega of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move creates around $3 million in salary cap space for the Cowboys, giving them some added flexibility for this season if additional pieces needed to be added. It does mean, however, that Witten will have a cap hold of more than $12 million next season.

Witten secured his only target for a 17-yard touchdown in Thursday's 27-17 preseason loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

The ageless tight end bailed out Dak Prescott on an underthrow by stealing the ball from K.J. Wright for a first-quarter touchdown. Although he didn't get any other looks on the night, there is no doubt that Witten is set to once again serve as one of Tony Romo's top targets in 2016.

Witten won't take the field for Saturday's preseason contest at Los Angeles, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With fellow offensive stalwarts Tony Romo (collarbone), Dez Bryant (heel), and Tyron Smith also sidelined Saturday, Witten's preseason snaps may be contingent upon the quarterback receiving clearance to suit up. In any case, the 34-year-old still occupies the top spot at tight end in Dallas.

Witten caught six of eight targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The score was Witten's first since Week 1. The veteran tight end struggled without his long-time quarterback in the lineup for much of the season, but still managed to rank fourth in the leauge among tight ends with 77 receptions - his most since 2012. Witten will be 34 to open next season, but should still have enough in the tank to give Romo is favorite security blanket. A huge leap in production may be unrealistic, though. While Witten didn't have Romo to throw him the ball, he also didn't have a healthy Dez Bryant commanding targets.

Witten caught one of two targets for just twelve yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

After snagging five catches last week versus the Jets, the dependable tight end saw just two looks Sunday in what was a dreadful performance by the Dallas passing attack. Kellen Moore severely limits the upside of all Cowboys pass catchers as long as he remains the starter, and this will remain the case next week in the season finale versus the Redskins.

Witten (chest) is active Sunday against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Witten was limited in practice all week, but this wasn't expected to cause any major problems for the veteran, as he was given a "probable" designation in advance of the Week 16 matchup. With Dez Bryant (foot/ankle) already ruled out, there will be a handful of extra targets to go around, some of which could be delegated to the tight ends.

Witten (chest) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

He was limited all week in practice, but that was likely just to preserve him heading into Sunday's game. It appears that Witten will be safe to deploy this week, but with Kellen Moore starting under center for Dallas, there is an added element of risk involved.
