Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Broncos are the early favorites to land defensive end DeMarcus Ware in free agency.
Insight: The Broncos finished 13th in the league in sacks last season, though that came with Von Miller being suspended for half the season. Either way, adding Ware to the mix would make Denver's pass rush almost unstoppable.

Insight: If Ware isn't able to get what he thinks he's worth on the open market, taking less money to stay with Dallas could be an option. We consider that a longshot though as Ware has already fielded calls from at least a half-dozen teams.

Description: Dallas star defensive end DeMarcus Ware is active for Sunday night's game with New Orleans.
Insight: Ware ranks 17th on the all-time sacks list with 115 in 134 career regular season games. Given the injuries to the Cowboys' secondary, they'll need a strong pass rush to have any chance of containing Drew Brees.
11/5/2013 9:04:00 PM
Description: Dallas defensive end DeMarcus Ware appears to be over the quad issue that has kept him out for the past few weeks.

Description: Dallas DE DeMarcus Ware is inactive for Week 7 at Philadelphia.
Insight: Great news for the Eagles offense and in particular quarterback Nick Foles. He'll have more time to throw and should be a viable fantasy option.
10/14/2013 9:48:00 PM
Description: Earlier ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that DeMarcus Ware would miss three or four weeks with a strained quad but now Fox's Jay Glazer is hearing that it may only be one week.
Insight: Technically, he still hasn't been ruled out for next week's game against the Eagles. He's a longshot to play in that one but it looks like Ware will be back in the lineup sooner than we had originally expected.

Description: Cowboys LB/DE DeMarcus Ware will need 3-to-4 weeks to recover from the quad strain he suffered Sunday against the Redskins. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Dallas' defense just became a lot less threatening. Ware, still one of the premier pass rushers in the NFL, is known for terrorizing opposing quarterbacks. Without him, quarterbacks facing the Cowboys should have a lot more time to get rid of the football.

Description: Dallas defensive end DeMarcus Ware sacked Rams quarterback Sam Bradford twice on Sunday to become the Cowboys' all-time sacks leader.
Insight: His second sack pushed him ahead of Harvey Martin, who set the mark 30 years earlier. Ware (115 career sacks) is 17th on the NFL's all-time sacks list.

Insight: Ware basically played the final few games of the season with one arm after tearing his labrum and hyperextending his elbow. Ware still finished the season with 11.5 sacks, but only had 1.5 in his final six games. A healthy Ware is always a threat to tally 15-20 sacks in a season.

Insight: Ware, who has 11.5 sacks this season, was only on the field for about 62 percent of the plays in last weekend's overtime loss to New Orleans. With the division championship on the line, expect Ware to be on the field chasing Robert Griffin III all over the field.
