Ware Could Go Saturday vs Saints

Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware could play Saturday night, an encouraging sign after a scary headfirst collision that left him sprawled on the field for several anxious minutes.

“He’s actually a lot better today,” coach Wade Phillips said Monday. “He’s really in a day-to-day situation as far as where he’s going to be, as far as being able to play. He took quite a hit but has really bounced back strong. That’s encouraging for him and us.”

After Ware got hurt in the fourth quarter of a 20-17 loss Sunday against San Diego, the Cowboys on Monday described Ware’s injury as a strained muscle in his neck. Ware was taken off the field strapped to a stretcher and went to the hospital for further evaluation before being released several hours later.

“It’s not anything more than that,” said Phillips, adding that Ware had no concussion-like symptoms.

With a short week of preparation before playing at undefeated New Orleans, the players were off Monday and unavailable for comment. They return to practice Tuesday.
