DeMarcus Ware will have elbow surgery


DeMarcus Ware was hampered by injuries to his right shoulder and elbow in the second half of the Cowboys season, which led him to have shoulder surgery shortly after the end of the regular season.

At the time, there was no determination about whether he’d need elbow surgery as well. That determination has been made and Ware is set for another operation. Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram calls it a minor procedure and Ware also downplayed the seriousness of the surgery on Thursday.

“Just to get the bone fragments cleaned up,” Ware said.

Ware said that he hopes to be back for organized team activities in the spring, but admitted that he might not wind up getting cleared until training camp. If that’s the case, Ware will be limited to classroom work while the Cowboys familiarize themselves with the 4-3 defense run by new coordinator Monte Kiffin. Ware will be making the move from outside linebacker to defensive end in the new scheme.

    2 surgeries in one month is not minor by any stretch of the imagination.

    Good player, but a legend only in the minds of the most fervent Cowboys fans. Objectivity is a wonderful thing, try it some time.

    I hope the surgeries go well and that he’ll be at full strength for training camp.

    @mazblast even with 5 more years left in him Ware is a definite legend. Im guessing your a steelers or Packers fan or one of those new 49ers “fans”. The consistent high standard that Ware brings every year makes him worthy of being called a legend. Something you wouldn’t understand.
