On Wednesday, Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware said he would be ready to fully participate when training camp opens on Sunday in Oxnard, CA. Ware admitted that he’s not yet 100 percent following offseason shoulder surgery and a hyperextended elbow that ended up not requiring surgery, but that he was close enough to get back on the practice field.
But head coach Jason Garrett says, not so fast, DeMarcus.
Garrett told reporters this week that, as a precautionary measure, the veteran Ware may have a different (later) start date than most of his teammates.
“We’ll just see how he is,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “He’s made great progress coming off the injuries from last year.
“We’ll certainly be smart going forward and just see how he is each and every day…We have a plan for each of those guys going into it, based on what their injury has been and different start dates for some guys, different ways to work back into training camp and work back into football.”
