ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware
has been immobilized on a stretcher and carted off the field after
his head slammed into a San Diego lineman.
Ware was pursing quarterback Philip Rivers early in the fourth
quarter Sunday when he collided into Brandyn Dombrowski. Ware's
head went straight into Dombrowski's upper leg, then Ware remained
on the ground.
Ware was tended to on the field by medical personnel, who stabilized the Pro Bowl linebacker before putting him on the stretcher. Teammates Marcus Spears and Terence Newman went over to Ware and spoke to the linebacker while he was being loaded onto a cart.
As he was being driven from the field, Ware gave a thumbs-up and
waved both hands. He was also talking to people around him.
