IRVING – Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware will wear a brace on his injured right shoulder and have his plays limited Sunday night in a do-or-die game at Washington.
The brace will help prevent Ware’s shoulder from popping out when he extends his arm forward. Ware didn’t wear a shoulder brace in last Sunday’s loss to New Orleans. He had to leave the game late in the third quarter and only returned for one play in overtime the rest of the game.
Ware will also continue to wear a brace on his right arm that helps provide support for his hyper-extended right elbow.
Ware didn’t practice all week, but said Friday that he’s going to play Sunday night. He’s officially listed as probable.
“We’re going to have to watch how many plays we give him, pick our spots and play our other players,” Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said Friday. “We’ll do the best we can. I know DeMarcus will play his heart out when he’s out there and we’ll just see how much he’s able to give us.”
