Jason Garrett Expects Cowboys LB DeMarcus Ware To Play 'Somehow, Some Way'
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he expects outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware to play in Sunday's winner-take-all battle for the NFC East title against Washington despite being sidelined with a strained shoulder in crunch time of the team's 34-31 loss to New Orleans, Jimmy Burch of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
"Somehow, some way, DeMarcus is going to get himself right to play in this Washington game," Garrett said during Monday's news conference at Valley Ranch. "He'll battle through anything."
Ware, a six-time Pro Bowler, never has missed a game in his Cowboys' career. But he took part in only 59 of 95 plays in Sunday's game against New Orleans. Ware, the team's sack leader (11.5), missed the entire fourth quarter and returned for only one play in overtime -- to rush the passer on a third-and-3 situation.
"DeMarcus Ware is such a talented athlete, I think a lot of times, people lose sight of the kind of person he is and how mentally and physically tough that he is," Garrett said. "He's a very willful guy ... He wants to get out there."
Garrett said Ware's track record for durability speaks for itself.
"He just somehow, some way gets himself ready to play in a ballgame," Garrett said. "I think a lot of that goes to his will and his passion for playing, his passion for his teammates and his love for the game."
