Ware has not practiced since leaving the Oct. 13 game against the Washington Redskins. He did some drills in practice off to the side last week but he did not do anything on the field in pregame warm-ups.
With the Cowboys playing against the pass-oriented New Orleans Saints next week, it makes more sense to keep Ware out an extra week in order for him to be healthier.
Miles Austin is missing his second straight game and fourth in the last six with a hamstring injury. Morris Claiborne (hamstring), J.J. Wilcox (knee), DeVonte Holloman (neck), Darrion Weems and Andre Smith are also inactive.
