Dallas Cowboys star pass rusher DeMarcus Ware was hoping to be fully cleared for the start of the team’s training camp and he has gotten his wish following the first practice. According to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Ware was cleared for the camp following his offseason shoulder surgery.
Williams wrote on Twitter:
Garrett says DeMarcus Ware was “impressive” in the conditioning test. Ware is cleared to practice after offseason shoulder surgery.

It is a good sign for the Cowboys and Ware as he looks to transition to defensive end in the team’s new 4-3 scheme.
Ware has familiarity playing the position because of his time on the defensive line at Troy, but the surgery slowed down his offseason progression and it is important for him to get back on the field, get reps under his belt and work back to game shape.
