Cowboys will continue exercising caution with DeMarcus Ware

DeMarcus Ware, Robert Griffin III AP

Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware said last week, contrary to multiple reports, that he didn’t think he’d be out as long as three or four weeks as a result of his injured quad and went so far as to call himself a game-time decision even though he was listed as doubtful.

Ware didn’t wind up playing against the Eagles in Week Seven and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that the team plans to continue to take a measured approach when it comes to Ware’s return to action. While Jones hopes that running back DeMarco Murray can practice this week after missing Sunday with a knee sprain, he’s more cautious when it comes to Ware.

“We’re in good shape at running back [but] I wish we were in that good of shape at defensive end regarding Ware,” Jones said on KRLD, via ESPNDallas.com. “We want to watch this. He’s got the type of injury that if it comes back to fast, he doesn’t have a tear there now, he doesn’t have an imperfection. If he tries and goes to early he could get an imperfection that’s another world relative to how he’ll be back.”

At 3-0 in the NFC East and with the defense playing well in each of the last two games, the Cowboys can afford to exercise some restraint with a player whose contributions they’ll need down the stretch of the season.

    Doesn’t matter whether he plays or not. The Cowboys are an 8 and 8 team with him or without him……ha ha….The cowboys haven’t beat a team yet this year with a winning record. And in most of the other NFC divisions the cowboys record would put them at the bottom of the standings. The cowboys are in a division with the scrub Giants, Redskins and Eagles. oooh. They’re so tuff. Ha Ha. The cowboys will find out just how crummy they are on November 10th in the New Orleans Mercedes Benz Superdome when the Saints and cowboys cast-off D coordinator Rob Ryan blast them right off the field. Ha ha. It’s gonna be a long plane ride back to Dallas after their beat-down in the Big Easy! Ha Ha. Geaux Saints!

    They are saving Ware & Miles for their NFC Least Championship run- Then the bus stops there!

    Good, he needs some rest and we will need him for our late season playoff push in case the Eagles start winning some games with Vick.

    No reason to worry about Washington and the hole they’ve put themselves in. I see 7 more losses aheas of them on their schedule which should please Rams fans unless they trade the pick for Josh Gordon.

    Dallas Cowboys, while not great and not expexting a playoff run, are obviously pound for pound the best team in the NFC EAST.

    Wait are you really saying this while a fan of the NFC South. Cowboys would be in 2nd plave in that division and only 2 games out in the NFC west. The entire nfc is weak outside of Seattle.

    You lost to the Patriots w no wrs. Tell us how confident you are in Rob Ryan around week 12. You snatched a great safety in the Draft ans a bum coach.

    And what’s the combined record of the teams the saints have beat? Only good team they’ve played was the pats and rob ryans sorry defense couldn’t stop them with under a minute to go and no timeouts so I don’t see why a saints fan is running their mouth

    Wow, Saints fans have one superbowl win in the last 3700 years, and all of a sudden they want to talk smack? Refresh our memory what happened when you losers played the 7-9 seahawks, and took that nice long plane ride heauxme?

    Jerry Jones, dont you dare take that foot off the gas pedal. You’ve managed to drive this once proud Dallas Cowboys team like Ricky Bobby’s youngest son drives his race car. Go fast, go fast!

    How weak is the entire NFC when you have Saints fans pulling their heads out of their bags to talk trash?

    Lots of season left and they seem to have been crowned champs of the NFC East.

    Give them credit as the defense is playing their hearts out, but pound for pound the roster talent still has a lot to be desired.

    They will go as far as Romo will take them and historically that has not amounted to much.

    salmen76 … lol at ur comment. Rob Ryan sux. just wait til he starts talking crap to opposing players and gets the AINTS a 15 yard penalty. our group of no names defense already looks faster than what his defense looked with big names so talk all the crap u want but we’ll see what happens on November 10th.

    I don’t look for Ware to return until after the bye week. Then he can play the final 6 games including 3 division opponents.

    Recently signed Wynn did a good job against the eagles in place of Ware. Wynn helped knock Foles out of the game.

    I like the youth movement upfront. Take your time Ware.

    @Salem….that’s what all the Denver fans were saying….calling some big blow out.

    Why don’t you look at it another way. Cowboys have three losses….two of them by a collective 4 points to two teams that are 12-1. Chargers at home are no scrub either. One of you ‘big shots’ are primed for a let down.

  13. salmen76 says: Oct 22, 2013 11:03 PM

    Sorry cowboy fans. Facts are facts. Your team has a losing record. And yall lost to the saints last year who had the worst defense ever. Ha ha. In your own stadium. The cowboys and all their loser fans deserve each other. In fact I belive the cowboys will have a losing record this season. Ha ha. Geaux Saints!
