Ware has missed the past three games with a quad injury, with the Cowboys have a 2-1 mark with him on the sideline. However, the team has been barely holding onto the NFC East lead in recent weeks, blowing a brutal game to the Detroit Lions and then scrapping by in a 27-23 win over the lowly Minnesota Vikings.
Nobody has been more durable than Ware throughout his nine-year career. Since being drafted out of Troy in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft, Ware had not missed a single game until this season. He also has been one of the best players in Cowboys history, amassing a team-record 115 sacks.
At 5-4, Dallas can certainly use the reinforcements on defense. The Cowboys have a tough road ahead, starting in the Superdome against the Saints and then taking on Eli Manning and the New York Giants in a suddenly important game.
