Jason Witten was on the receiving end of seven Tony Romo passes before he suffered a sprained MCL during the Cowboys victory. There is no word on whether Witten will be able to practice throughout the week, but he is expected to be ready for the Cowboys next game against the Titans — following the team’s bye week.

Starting left guard Kyle Kosier also sprained his MCL.

It is the second time this season that Kosier sprained his right knee, but he does not expect to miss any games. Head coach Wade Phillips is not as positive that Kosier will not miss any time, however, he appears confident that Witten will be able to go.

“I think it’s more iffy on Kosier,” Phillips said. “I don’t think there’s much doubt that Witten will be able to play. He may not be able to [practice] this week. I think Kosier is right in that two-week span. Now that’s preliminary. That’s not a doctor report.”

If Kosier is unable to go, Montrae Holland will step in the starting role.
