CBS SPORTS – Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware has battled elbow, shoulder and hamstring problems this season, and on Sunday, he missed the entire fourth quarter of the Saints game and most of overtime because he aggravated a strained right shoulder.

In effect, as Dallas enters Week 17, Ware (who’s still managed 11.5 sacks and five forced fumbles this season) is a beat-up linebacker.

But as for missing next week’s regular-season finale vs. the Redskins — which, as you might have heard, has a few playoff implications? Yeah, it’s not going to happen.

“Divisional championship game, Sunday night,” Ware said, via ESPN Dallas. “Should I keep going?”

We’ll assume that his question was rhetorical and that yes, he will keep going and play. For one, he had an MRI on Monday that apparently showed the team that he’s OK. For two, Ware has never missed a game in his eight-year career. For three, the Cowboys season is riding on this meeting with the Redskins.

“Somehow, someway, DeMarcus is going to get himself right to play in this Washington game,” coach Jason Garrett said.
