Cowboys’ Ware returns to practice

Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware has returned to practice.

Ware went through the stretching routine Thursday with the

rest of the team. Ware then went to the adjacent field to work

alone with a trainer when the rest of the players, who were not in

pads, broke for team drills.

Ware is recovering from a strained neck sustained in a scary

hit last Sunday.

Ware has said he wants to play Saturday night against

undefeated New Orleans. The three-time Pro Bowl linebacker has

never missed a game, starting all 77 since he was the 11th overall

pick in 2005.
