ARLINGTON, Texas -- Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (foot) will play against the Raiders today and he appears to be getting a good push off the line as he warms up right now.

Witten, considered to be one of the toughest players on the team, vowed to play against the Raiders, but the team's medical staff was very concerned about his mid-foot sprain, which is located halfway between his big toe and his ankle.

No one is worried about Witten's ability to run in the open field, but there was concern that he'd have trouble firing off the ball. We'll definitely keep our eye on Witten early in the game to see if he's limited in any way. Here are the inactives for today's game:

Cowboys: QB Stephen McGee (emergency), S Ken Hamlin, CB Cletis Gordon, LB Jason Williams, G Montrae Holland, C/G Duke Preston, T Marc Colombo, LB Curtis Johnson, LB Slade Norris

Raiders: WR Todd Watkins, LB David Nixon, T Khalif Barnes, T Erik Pears, WR Javon Walker, WR Nick Miller
