Ware worries about Jason Campbell

By Calvin Watkins


IRVING -- Of DeMarcus Ware’s 60 career quarterback sacks, three have come against Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell, who the Cowboys play on Sunday.


This season, Campbell has been sacked 28 times, including 14 times the last three weeks.

“To be honest, it’s really hard to get to him because they keep in extra guys,” Ware said. “They might have some guys on the front line so they do a lot of split backs and a lot of protection schemes to keep the guys off Campbell to make sure he’s effective in the pass.”

Jason Campbell
Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell has been sacked 28 times this season.
Changes to the offensive line have hurt Campbell this season. Left tackle Chris Samuels is out for the season with a neck injury, his career is also in dobut. The Redskins have started Stephon Heyer and Levi Jones at left tackle since Samuels' departure. Washington also started four different right guards and two different right tackles.

But Ware still believes it’s hard to get to Campbell.

“He’s a great pocket passer,” said Ware, who has seven sacks, tied for 10th in the NFL. “He makes sure he has confidence in his line and the guys around him so he can step up in the pocket to make plays.”
