    He was screaming on the sideline. He certainly didn't look like a guy who had a concussion. Usually guys that all held out look groggy.

    That decision could have costs us the game.

    The clock will start on tight end Jason Witten, who was diagnosed with a concussion in the fourth quarter after he ricocheted between Brian Urlacher and safety Chris Harris.

    If Witten cannot play next week at Houston, then the Cowboys would be down to one healthy tight end (Martellus Bennett ) and would have to make a roster move. Tight ends Martin Rucker and Scott Chandler are on the practice squad.

    I would rather endure the loss of a game than to risk a players health.

    You can't always tell that a guy has a concussion by looking at him. The training staff did the right thing.

    What?? I am pretty sure the medical staff knew what they were doing.

    You can't mess around with concussions.

    We all know Jason Witten is a fierce competitor, I bet he would want to play even with a broken leg.

    The clock will start on tight end Jason Witten , who was diagnosed with a concussion in the fourth quarter after he ricocheted between Brian Urlacher and safety Chris Harris.

    Witten finished with five catches for 51 yards and was noticeably upset on the sidelines when the doctors determined he could not return.

    A player has to be symptom free in order to be able to return

    I'm actually shocked the training staff didn't send him back in.

    Usually, they'll send a guy out there if he can answer the 10-count, no matter the injury.

    If your team hinges on one player to win or lose the game for you, then you don't deserve to win.
