Witten could play with broken rib against Giants

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has a broken rib but may play Sunday when Dallas bumps heads with the NFC East rival Giants.

Witten was injured in the first quarter of last weekend's win over Tampa Bay and sat out most of the second half. According to a posting on the team's Web site, he could wear added protection against New York.

The Cowboys were already without Pro Bowl quarterback Tony Romo when the NFL leader in yards and catches among tight ends got hurt.
