Ware thinks Spencer and Ratliff can jump right in when they're healthy because 4-3 defense is 'simple, so guys can attack'

Defensive end DeMarcus Ware is optimistic that Jay Ratliff and Anthony Spencer can contribute almost right away when they come back because the 4-3 defense is pretty straightforward.

“The scheme is very simple, but the effort is what it’s all predicated on – and making plays on athleticism, making it simple, so guys can attack and be aggressive,” Ware said.

Ratliff has not practiced since training camp started. Spencer had knee surgery four weeks ago.

“When Jay and Spencer come back, it’s not about them not knowing the scheme and how they’re going to attack us, because when people attack the 4-3, it’s very simple,” Ware said. “It’s more about ‘Are they going to be in shape?’ or making sure they’re in shape and making sure their bodies are right to withstand a whole game.”
