Injury report: DeMarcus Ware to return Friday

IRVING, Texas -- Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware missed his second straight day of practice Thursday because of an illness but plans on being ready for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.

“I’ll be out there Friday doing something,” Ware said.

Ware has been bothered by a chest cold but he has gone through the walkthroughs and in the meetings.

Running back Felix Jones returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday after missing Wednesday with a bruised knee.

Center Ryan Cook (hamstring) and linebacker Anthony Spencer (pectoral) practiced for the second straight day while Phil Costa (ankle), DeMarco Murray (foot), Matt Johnson (hamstring) and Sean Lissemore (ankle) did not practice.
