Linebacker DeMarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys is taken off the field after a neck sprain against the San Diego Chargers at Cowboys Stadium on December 13, 2009 in Arlington, Texas.
Early reports indicate Ware suffered a sprained neck, is moving all extremeties and there are no signs of paralysis. He is doubtful for the Cowboys game this Saturday against the New Orlenas Saints.
Ware suffered the injury with just over 11 minutes to go in the Cowboys' 20-17 loss against the San Diego Chargers. Ware's head appeared to hit the upper leg of Chargers offensive guard Brandyn Dombrowski.
He was down for about ten minutes while being tended to by trainers and members of the medical team.
At one point, teammates left the bench to go onto the field to see how Ware was doing.
From television coverage, you could see Ware's head and neck were secured in a brace before he was moved.
But as Ware was removed from the field, he gave the crowd and his teammates several thumbs up. The crowd responded by cheering for the linebacker.
Ware has been with the Cowboys for the past 5 years and just signed a multi-million dollar deal to play with the team though 2015.
