Cowboys LB Ware feels better, hopes to play

By  | 

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware
said his sprained neck felt "100 percent better" on Tuesday but
he did not practice. The former Troy star will undergo more tests before the team decides whether he will be available to face unbeaten New Orleans on Saturday night.

Ware is supposed to have X-rays, an MRI and other tests
Wednesday to see if the swelling is gone and to make sure there are
no problems.

"If he's cleared medically then he could play," coach Wade
Phillips said. "There's a possibility that could happen."

Ware rammed into the leg of a San Diego lineman Sunday. He was
immobilized on the field and taken to a hospital as a precaution.
He had strength in his limbs before leaving the field.
