The Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who sprained his neck during last Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers, said Tuesday that he was feeling much better and may return to practice soon after undergoing some more tests.
The team will decide whether to have Ware wear back his Cowboys jersey for this Saturday night’s game against the unbeaten New Orleans Saints after the tests, including some X-Rays and an MRI to be done on Wednesday to see if the swelling is gone and to make sure there are no problems.
“If he’s cleared medically then he could play,” Coach Wade Phillips said. “There’s a possibility that could happen.”
Already playing with a stress fracture in his foot and a chipped bone in his wrist before hurting the neck, Ware still managed to lead the Cowboys in sacks, a category he led the NFL in last season with 20. So I guess it would be the Cowboys’ last choice to rule out him and start rookie Victor Butler instead.
