Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware says he’ll likely undergo offseason elbow surgery


After missing out on the postseason yet again, the Dallas Cowboys will have some extra time to rest up and prepare for next season in hopes of finally returning to the playoffs. While they use their extra time off, one of the team’s stars plans to undergo a minor procedure to clean up an issue in his elbow.

Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware said that he will likely undergo arthroscopic elbow surgery during the offseason, accordinding to the team’s official website.

Ware is coming off of a season where he had a career-low six sacks, so hopefully he will be able to get his body right and be able to return at full strength when he takes the field next season.

The good news for Dallas is that this is just a minor procedure, so Ware should not miss any extended time and they can fully expect their star pass rusher to be ready whenever they suit up for OTAs later this year.

    This team truly missed Ware’s over-the-top defensive play this past season. People like me say it’s his age finally catching up with him. Others point to his growing list of crippling injuries. Others say it’s because Ware was double teamed every play, or, the option offenses he faced stymied his rushing abilities.

    Whatever the reason, if there ever was a guy who, if he possibly can, can come back and be the all- out, unstoppable force that we remember him to be, it’s Ware. On a team with so many obvious defensive line problems, Ware making one last defensive stand-out year could do wonders for this defense and allow the coaches to fill other holes with better quality longer lasting players.
