DeMarcus Ware promises to play through whatever pain there is

Linebacker DeMarcus Ware said he will not wear any type of harness on his strained shoulder nor will be take a pain-killing injection. But he will be in the lineup come Sunday.

"I feel a lot better right now," Ware said Wednesday. "I'm going regardless."

Ware, who already was playing with a hyperextended elbow, had to leave last week's game with 30 seconds remaining in the third quarter after "tweaking" the shoulder. He returned for a third-down play in overtime. Ware played 59 of 95 plays. He did not practice Wednesday.

"I’m going to tell you something, 75 percent of DeMarcus Ware is probably better than 90 percent of the guys who play the position at the end of the day," Cowboys defensive end Jason Hatcher said. "I’ll take 75 percent vs. no DWare anyday. Wherever he is right now, I’ll take it."

Ware has never missed a game in his NFL career and has failed to start only one of 127 games. He didn't start a 2009 game against New Orleans because of a neck injury.

Ware has 11.5 sacks this season, but only 2.5 have come in the past seven games. He has been without a sack in three of his past five games.
