Jason Witten Not Making Excuses for Slow Start to 2012

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten offers no excuses or explanation for his dreadful start to the season.

Witten, a seven-time Pro Bowler who leads the leagues in drops, simply vows to return to form.

Witten insists that his health isn’t a factor despite missing four weeks of practice after suffering a lacerated spleen in the Aug. 13 preseason opener. He wasn’t cleared to play until visiting a New York medical specialist just before the Cowboys’ season-opening win over the New York Giants.

“I wish there was a way I could say I wasn’t feeling good or I’m pressing or anything like that,” Witten said Monday, when he answered questions for 13 minutes a day after uncharacteristically avoiding the media following a poor performance. “It’s not that. That would be the easy way to really get out of it, but bottom line is, you’ve got to get it fixed. Unacceptable.”
