Jason Witten cannot be reinstated to the Dallas Cowboys because he is on their reserve/retired list at this point in the season.
Players on that list can't be reinstated after Week 13.
There were reports over the weekend that Jason Garrett was attempting to convince Witten to come out of retirement.
“There’s nothing there,” said Witten on ESPN via the Dallas Morning News. “Look, I’m enjoying where I’m at. Those guys are red hot. They don’t need to change a thing with the way they’re playing, and the way that defense is playing.
“They’re in good shape and so am I.”
