Ware expected to miss at least one game

The Dallas Cowboys will have to face the New Orleans Saints without their best defensive player.

Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware is expected to miss at least one game after suffering a sprained neck against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting. Although Ware was out of the hospital by Sunday night, his injury apparently is serious enough that he can’t play just six days later when the Cowboys face the Saints on Saturday.

So against the great Saints’ passing attack, the Cowboys will be without the player who leads the team in sacks.

Ware has started every game since his rookie season, so the Saints game will be the first game Ware has missed in his five-year career.
