IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys rookie tight end Jason Witten broke his jaw after taking a vicious hit from two Arizona linebackers at the end of an 8-yard gain Sunday.

Witten was hit immediately by Ronald McKinnon and Ray Thompson after making a catch early in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 24-7 win. Witten got up and jogged off the field, but dropped to the ground when he got to the sideline and was taken to the locker room holding a towel to his mouth.

Dallas offensive guards Larry Allen (sprained left knee) and Andre Gurode (sprained right ankle) were also hurt, but returned to finish the game.
