It was all but assumed that DeMarcus Ware would have arthroscopic elbow surgery this offseason because, for one thing, Ware himself said after the season that surgery was likely coming. But according to a report by David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, nothing has been scheduled as of yet.
Per Moore, Ware will continue to monitor the elbow and make a decision in the coming weeks.
Ware almost had elbow surgery after the 2012 season, but decided one procedure--right shoulder surgery--was enough for one offseason.
The elbow was one of a myriad of injuries that befell Ware during 2013, the least productive season of his career, statistically. He also had a quad issue that kept him out of three games--the first games he’s ever missed due to injury--and he revealed after Week 17 that he had been playing with a herniated disk in his back.
Last year, Ware finished with career lows in games played (13), tackles (40) and sacks (six). He said after the year that he’d be open to restructuring his contract, but not taking a pay cut.
