On Thursday, Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware said he’s feeling better but he’ll still be a game-time for Sunday’s matchup with the Vikings at AT&T Stadium.
Ware missed both the victory over the Eagles and last week’s loss to the Lions after suffering a strained quad in the Redskins game. These were the first games Ware has missed in his nine-year NFL career, and he’s also been dealing with stinger issues this season.
“It’s night and day,” Ware said of his progress from last week to this week, per the Dallas Morning News. “Last week, it was probably about 50 percent and it’s totally different now. I did some drills today and went through the bags and just getting everything strengthened so I can get back on the field.”
Ware still hasn’t gone through a full practice since sustaining the injury but he’s been seen on the sidelines doing rehab work this week. The seven-time Pro Bowler’s plan going into Sunday is to test the quad before the game and going from there.
“The way that everything is going, it’s progressing really well,” Ware said. “I did a lot of the drills today and I’m starting to feel really good. I’m trying to get ready for this week. If not this week, I’m trying to get ready for next week. It’s a day to day thing.”
