DeMarcus Ware doesn’t think he’ll miss a month


Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware has never missed a game in his NFL career, a streak that looks destined to come to an end in Week Seven thanks to a quad injury suffered in Sunday night’s victory over the Redskins.

According to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, Ware will wind up missing more than just one game. Schefter reported Monday that Ware will be out 3-4 weeks while recovering from the injury, a timetable that Ware refused to endorse on Monday. Ware agreed that he was doubtful to play this week, saying that he couldn’t play based on how he felt right now, but wouldn’t go any further than that when asked about missing a month.

“I don’t think so,” Ware said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I just know my body recovers really fast and I’m not going to be out that long. They’re saying doubtful this week. But I don’t know. I’m just trying to get ready.”

Ware’s history is long on games he played while nicked up, so it’s easy to understand why he’d feel confident about getting back on the field sooner rather than later. With the defensive line short on players because of multiple injuries, a short absence would be welcomed in Dallas.

  1. As an Eagles fan, I prefer Ware to be out on the field, Cowboys A team vs Eagles A team. Never like to see injuries happen to a pro like Ware.

  2. DeMarcus, I respectfully suggest you sit out a few games. As a lifelong Cowboys fan who hasn’t missed a game in over 16 years, I’ve seen your play decline dramatically in the past two seasons. Maybe you’re playing “nicked up” and that’s to be commended. The fact is, however, that Dallas’ defense played markedly BETTER when you left the field Sunday night. Kyle Wilber looked more like you than you do. It’s also alarming how many times in the past few years you can be found on the sidelines on key plays. If you’re planning on playing “hurt” like you did at the end of the year last year when your lack of mobility was an obvious handicap to our team, thanks but no thanks. It’s time to let the younger players step up and show what they can do….

  3. It’s not like he shows up half the time anyway…The perfect player for the most mediocre franchise in sports.

  4. Actually I guess that means that the Eagles wish they could be considered a mediocre franchise hahahaha
