DeMarcus Ware will wear a shoulder harness as well as the elbow brace

DeMarcus Ware had KT tape on his right shoulder Friday after practice. He'll have a shoulder harness on it come Sunday, he said.

Ware said earlier in the week he would play without a harness, but on Friday, he said a harness would keep it from popping out again. He left the game with 30 seconds to go in the third quarter Sunday against the Saints and returned for only one play in overtime. He played 59 of 95 plays.

Ware did not practice all week, but he reiterated Friday that he will play. He is listed as probable on the injury report.

Ware has played with a brace on his right elbow the past two games after hyperextending it against the Bengals.

Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said the Cowboys will pick their spots with Ware, who has 1.5 sacks in the past five games.

"I think we’re going to have to watch how many plays we give him, pick our spots and play our other players," Ryan said. "We’ve got good payers here so we’re going to play them. There’s only one DeMarcus Ware. There’s only one Sean Lee, but we’ve had to function without Sean. Now, sometimes we’ve had to function without DeMarcus. I mean these are two of the premier guys in football. Nobody’s got them except us, but we’re fortunate to have them and when we don’t, we have to move on. We’ll do the best we can. I know DeMarcus will play his heart out when he’s out there, and we’ll just see how much he’s able to give us.”
