Cowboys TE Jason Witten is active for Wednesday night’s season opener. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Witten was medically cleared.

Witten was listed as doubtful after suffering a lacerated spleen in the preseason against the Raiders. Wednesday will be Witten’s 140th consecutive regular-season game. He's missed but one regular-season contest in his career.

For the Giants, WR Hakeem Nicks and OT Will Beatty are active. Both players were listed as questionable. CB Prince Amukamara, as expected, is inactive for the Giants. Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins is inactive as well.
