IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware was a limited participant in Thursday's practice for a second consecutive day with a tight hamstring but voiced no concern about it heading into the Week 2 game at Seattle.

"I have never had this before," Ware said. "I don't get frustrated at all (about it). You've got to let it heal and get your treatment and let it go away on it's own."

Ware suffered the injury during one of the final practices in Oxnard, Calif., and missed the last two preseason games. When the regular season started, Ware was his old self. He picked up two sacks, two quarterback hits and five tackles in the season-opening victory over the New York Giants.

"I can go full speed right now if I wanted to," Ware said.

The Cowboys' pass rush was a concern in the offseason. But against the Giants, Ware had plenty of help. Anthony Spencer, Jason Hatcher and Victor Butler were credited with one quarterback pressure each.

"I think our pass rush up front is going to come into it's own," Ware said. "It's getting pressure on the quarterback in key situations, that's what it's about. It's about being consistent week in and week out and doing it, proving that we can do it and that's part of our team."
