    Well, this is good news for Cowboys fans.

    DeMarcus Ware played the homestretch of 2012 in a shoulder- and an elbow-brace as he dealt with a torn labrum and a hyperextended elbow but, after undergoing surgery to repair the labrum and giving his elbow some time to heal, he’s feeling good going into 2013.

    "It feels really good right now," Ware said of his nicks, per ESPN Dallas. "But I hadn’t had any impact yet. That’s the whole deal of how much impact can you take? You don’t want to take it too early and have a setback."

    Ware will move from outside linebacker to defensive end in Monte Kiffin’s Tampa 2 system next season, and he imagines he’ll be a little more effective with a clean bill of health--a fair assumption.

    "If you’re playing out there with a cast on, an elbow brace and shoulder brace on and you have one arm and you’re going against a guy who’s 350 pounds, it’s a little bit different," Ware said. "But I feel like if you get out there and give it all you got and what you got, some people would have been sitting on the sideline, and I wasn’t. So it’s getting out there and doing what you can do to help the team."
