Dallas Pro Bowl linebacker DeMarcus Ware missed practice Thursday because of a sore back.
The problem isn't considered serious and Ware is expected to play in Saturday night's home playoff game against Philadelphia.
Ware, who has 11 sacks, has played with a fracture in his wrist for much of the season.
After straining his neck in a headfirst collision against San Diego, he didn't miss a game and the following week had two sacks, forcing fumbles on both.
