DeMarcus Ware could play next week

Even though Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware was held out of today’s game against the Eagles,  he could end up playing in next week’s match up with the Lions, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.

The Cowboys are keeping Ware out of the lineup more as a precaution. Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said if this were a playoff game, Ware would play.

There is an expectation that Ware could play next week against the Detroit Lions.

The good news for the Cowboys is they didn’t need Ware today to pull off a divisional road win against the Eagles.
