Cowboys Stock Watch: Witten, Spencer rise

Here's our weekly look at who played well and who didn't following the Cowboys victory over the Raiders

Stock Up

Jason Witten. The tight end played with a sprained left foot and caught five passes for a season-high 107 yards. He wore a walking boot as he left the stadium but there is no doubt about his status next week against the Giants.

Anthony Spencer. While the man he replaced, Greg Ellis, was getting his knee drained, Spencer had two sacks, three quarterback hurries and one pass defensed.

David Buehler. Of his five kickoffs, there were touchbacks, which is a good sign that his sore right pinkie toe isn't bothering him too much.

Stock Down

Nick Folk. He missed another kick in the 40-yard range, he's 4-9 on the season, and that is troubling if the Cowboys want to rely on him down the stretch for a long field goal. Folk's 49 yarder hit the right upright.

Kevin Ogletree. When you're a young player, no matter how much the owner likes you, making plays is important. Ogletree muffed a fourth quarter punt but recovered. Still, if you want playing time, make plays.

Alan Ball. He did breakup a pass, but allowed the Raiders only touchdown of the game to Darrius Heyward-Bey no less.
