Ware hopes stingers are under control

September, 23, 2013
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Stingers have been a problem for Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware for the past few years, but he thinks he might have found a solution to the problem in the second half of Sunday’s 31-7 win against the St. Louis Rams.

Forced to the sideline briefly in the first half when the buzzing started down his left arm again, Ware changed his neck padding for the second half.

“I didn’t have (a stinger) last year; then this year, it’s like all of a sudden, ding, and I did it again (Sunday),” Ware said. “I think I’ll be alright. I’ve just got to be cognizant of it. I got an adjustment to my neck (pad) and it went away. It was fine. It was too far back, but now I put on the old brace and it was fine.”
