Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver Ryan Switaer hasn't seen much of the field this season, and there's a very clear reason for that, says Dallas Cowboys writer Bryan Broaddus.
"Because Jason Witten won't come off the field. That's it. Jason Witten refuses to come off the field and you say, 'Well, let's get Switzer and let's get Cole Beasley out there.' You're not gonna take Beasley off the field because he had 70-some-odd catches. Is he having a great year for you right now? No, he's not, and he'll be the first one to admit that. Teams are playing him differently, they're not allowing him to have the escape routes that we saw last year. So, now all of a sudden you're saying, 'Well, how do you get both guys on the field? Well, we gotta take Jason Witten off the field.' That ain't happening, boys. That's not happening anytime soon."
In 11 games, Switzer has just two catches for nine yards, but has racked up over 500 yards in kick and punt returns, including a 61-yard kickoff return.
