DeMarcus Ware says it is time for him to get to the quarterback, and that he is in as good a shape as ever to do it.
“I’m glad I had this time off,” he said. “I was doing a lot of the moves I usually don’t do. I was doing them in practice, feeling real confidence in it. I got my strength back, so I’m happy about that.”
Ware has not had a sack since the Saints game, when he aggravated his quadriceps injury. He played in 44 snaps against the Raiders and 52 snaps against the Giants, about 78 percent of the time combined in the two games.
Asked if he can get to the quarterback Monday night, Ware said, “I got to. I got to get back on track.”
Ware is third on the team with five sacks. But he leads in quarterback pressures with 26.
