Offensive snaps: Playing time suggests Jason Witten healthy

By Jean-Jacques Taylor

A look at the snaps played by Cowboys’ offense in the team’s 16-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while analyzing and discussing what it means:

RT Doug Free: 68 of 68
RG Mackenzy Bernadeau: 68 of 68
LT Tyron Smith: 68 of 68
C Ryan Cook: 68 of 68
QB Tony Romo: 68 of 68
TE Jason Witten: 68 of 68
LG Nate Livings: 64 of 68
WR Dez Bryant: 62 of 68
RB DeMarco Murray: 56 of 68
WR Miles Austin: 49 of 68
WR Kevin Ogletree: 40 of 68
TE John Phillips: 26 of 68
FB Lawrence Vickers: 19 of 68
RB Felix Jones: 11 of 68
WR Dwayne Harris: 7 of 68
RG Derrick Dockery: 4 of 68
TE James Hanna: 2 of 68

When Jason Witten tells you he’s completely healthy and his spleen has no impact on his poor performance through the first three games, then you have to believe him based on his playing time. Witten was the only skill position player not named Tony Romo to participate in every snap against the Bucs. ... Felix Jones continues to see his playing time dwindle, although he did manage two catches for 28 yards. ... Kevin Ogletree’s playing time increased for the third consecutive week, which should surprise no one since he’s tied for the team lead with 14 receptions. ... Nate Livings missed four plays with a finger injury that required him to wear a splint Monday.
