Jerry: Ware still game-time decision
By Tim MacMahon
During his Friday radio show, owner/general manager Jerry Jones didn't offer anything new on DeMarcus Ware's status.
"The good news is that, aside from his soreness, he certainly does physically have the ability to play," Jones said. "We'll just determine that as to how he’s feeling at game time."
Wade Phillips had hoped that Ware's status would be determine before the Cowboys left for New Orleans. That didn't happen. Ware is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against the Saints.
Phillips said a key would be how Ware performed during Thursday's practice. However, Ware did not participate. He wore a helmet and worked out on the side with associate athletic trainer Britt Brown and strength and conditioning coach Joe Juraszek.
In other injury news, free safety Ken Hamlin is listed as questionable, but he is expected to play after missing four games with a high ankle sprain. Hamlin had limited participation in all of the Cowboys' practices this week.
Fullback Deon Anderson did not participate in Friday's walkthrough because of an illness, but he is listed as probable.
