Cowboys @ Giants: Monday Injury Report

"Look, it's just a spleen, don't worry about it. Just throw me the ball."

A total of 24 players are named on the Cowboys @ Giants injury report for Monday, 14 Cowboys and 10 Giants. From a Cowboys point of view, there is some good news in that Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, DeMarcus Ware and Phil Costa all participated fully in yesterday's practice, as did linebacker Dan Connor, who had been limited on Sunday.

Jason Witten, Mike Jenkins, Andre Holmes and Kyle Wilber were all limited yesterday. Witten will be undergoing a CAT scan today to have his lacerated spleen checked out, and if the spleen look okay, Witten is determined to play:

"If I get cleared, I’m playing," Witten said. "It’s the only way, I believe, you can approach the game. I think people know that’s the only way I’m playing. This is what you play for."

Jay Ratliff, Danny McCray and Matt Johnson did not practice. With the two safeties likely out for the game, it looks like the first game of the season will already see Mana Silva, the fifth safety on the depth chart, get some action in Rob Ryan's dollar package. Ratliff also looks very doubtful for Wednesday's game, and Rob Ryan acknowledged as much yesterday:

"Jay Ratliff is the best nose tackle in football so obviously you want him in there," Ryan said Monday. "Does he make a big difference not being in there? Sure he does. We have good players behind him. Sean Lissemore and Josh Brent are two really good football players, so there’s a big opportunity for them to step up and play. You can’t take a person like Jay out of your lineup and expect it not to affect you some because it definitely will."
