The clock will start on tight end Jason Witten , who was diagnosed with a concussion in the fourth quarter after he ricocheted between Brian Urlacher and safety Chris Harris.
Witten finished with five catches for 51 yards and was noticeably upset on the sidelines when the doctors determined he could not return.
A player has to be symptom free in order to be able to return
If Witten cannot play next week at Houston, then the Cowboys would be down to one healthy tight end (Martellus Bennett ) and would have to make a roster move. Tight ends Martin Rucker and Scott Chandler are on the practice squad.

The fact that tight end Cornelius Ingram took part in every practice was a huge positive. He moved very well, he caught the ball well and he gained confidence after missing all of last season with the torn ACL. Ingram is clearly ahead of both Martin Rucker and Clay Harbor -- tough to tell who is ahead between those two -- and he could play a very important role when the Eagles go to two-tight end sets. Ingram has a lot of work to do in the next six weeks, and he will certainly put in the time. He was all smiles after the final practice on Thursday.

Clevelandbrowns.com: It appears Browns tight end Kellen Winslow's
season is officially over. He's listed as doubtful (25-percent
chance of playing) with an ankle injury. Another tight end,
Darnell Dinkins (ribs), is questionable after not practicing
Friday for a second straight time, which may mean that rookie
Martin Rucker will play a lot on Sunday.

Clevelandbrowns.com: Browns TE Kellen Winslow, Shaun Smith and
Kevin Shaffer are among the Browns' inactives for tonight's game.
Starting in their places will be Steve Heiden at tight end, Louis
Leonard at right defensive end and Ryan Tucker at right tackle.
Tucker and Donte' Stallworth will make their season debuts after
missing the first four games. Back in the starting lineup at left
outside linebacker is Willie McGinest. Smith's absence will
likely lead to more time for Ahytba Rubin and Santonio Thomas in
the defensive line rotation. The Browns' other inactives are Sean
Jones, Scott Young, Martin Rucker and Hamza Abdullah. Ken Dorsey
is the third quarterback.

Cleveland Plain Dealer: The injuries continue to mount for the
Browns, along with the losses. The latest was to tight end Steve Heiden, who was carted off the field after the second play of the
second half with injuries to his right knee and right ankle. He
did not return. The extent of the injury was unknown and Heiden
will most likely undergo an MRI today. The injury was especially
costly because tight end Kellen Winslow is sidelined with a high
ankle sprain and could miss the final two games. The injury left
the Browns with two healthy tight ends in Darnell Dinkins and
rookie Martin Rucker. Dinkins began the game by dropping a pass
over the middle near the Eagles 5 in the first quarter.
