Cowboys' DeMarcus Ware won't let sore back slow him down

The Dallas Cowboys are struggling with injuries on defense. Despite being limited in practice on Thursday, defensive end DeMarcus Ware is optimistic he’ll play and wouldn’t miss a game with so much on the line..

I feel good, but at the end of the day, we know what’s at stake,” Ware said, via Calvin Watkins of “To be honest with you, this is the type of game — one of those playoff-atmosphere type games — its win lose or draw to me. I know my teammates feel the same way. We’re going to play that way.”

Those comments come just one week after he said he feels good.

“Health wise, I’m fine, I feel good, I was running around out there, I didn’t get tired,” Ware said, via “At the end of the day I haven’t been playing like the DeMarcus of the past and I got to get back to that.

“It’s December (and) people always say the light turns on in December and you set yourself apart from everybody and I got to get back on track with that.”
