There’s still a chance Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware could play against the Eagles, after suffering a strained quad last week against the Redskins, at least according to Ware himself.
Ware called himself a game-time decision this week, even though he’s been held out of practice all week.
“I know that I can get through injuries, but you never can (predict) what one injury’s worse than another,” Ware said, per the team’s official website. “Each week, just like I took it with that injury, you’ve got to take it that whole week and make a game-day decision.”
When first diagnosed, it was thought that the injury would keep Ware out for up to three or four weeks, but--due in part to his history of recovering from injuries quicker than expected--the seven-time Pro Bowler doesn’t seem to put much stock in this timetable.
"I'm not going to be out three or four weeks," Ware said. "I don't know where that came from, but somebody said it. My recovery's pretty fast, and I'm feeling pretty good today."
