– It seemed like DeMarcus Ware
would avenge his zero-sack performance a week prior after delivering a hit on Eagles quarterback Nick Foles on the first play from scrimmage Sunday.
But Ware’s shoulder and neck began to give him problems later on in that series, and the linebacker finished his second consecutive game without a sack.
“It’s always week to week,” Ware said about his injuries. “When people always tell me how my body feels, I say good enough to play on Sunday.”
With so many injured players on defense, the Cowboys can’t really afford to lose Ware or linebacker Anthony Spencer
Ware gritted it out the rest of the day, but for the first time this season he was held without at least half a sack in back-to-back games. The linebacker still leads the Cowboys with 10 sacks this year and said in the last couple weeks he’s still affecting the quarterback.
“I haven’t been getting sacks the last two or three games, but I’ve been hitting the quarterback, getting pressure on him,” Ware said. “But I’ve got to step it up this week, get those plays, make those big plays this week to win the game.”
