Jason Garrett says DeMarcus Ware will somehow play

Even though Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware is dealing with a strained shoulder, head coach Jason Garrett believes he’ll figure out a way to play.

“Somehow, some way, DeMarcus is going to get himself right to play in this Washington game,” Garrett said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “He’ll battle through anything.”

Garrett indicated Ware has a strong will.

“DeMarcus Ware is such a talented athlete, I think a lot of times, people lose sight of the kind of person he is and how mentally and physically tough that he is,” Garrett said. “He’s a very willful guy … He wants to get out there.”

Garrett says Ware always seems to figure out a way to play.

“He just somehow, some way gets himself ready to play in a ballgame,” Garrett said. “I think a lot of that goes to his will and his passion for playing, his passion for his teammates and his love for the game.”
