IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware had successful surgery on his right elbow and is not expected to miss any time during the offseason program, according to sources close to Ware.
Ware had been bothered by the elbow injury the past two years but was recently diagnosed with a nerve issue. In a recent interview with ESPNDallas.com, Ware explained that when he would bend his elbow the nerve would be exposed, and when it would get hit it would cause pain. Larry Allen had a similar surgery following the 2001 season and did not have an issue again.
Ware missed three games last season because of a quadriceps strain and was held to a career-low six sacks. With the Cowboys needing to make several salary-cap driven decisions this offseason, the team could approach him about re-working his contract. He is set to make $12.25 million this year and count $16 million against the salary cap.
