DeMarcus Ware OK after taking cleat to side

ARLINGTON, Texas – DeMarcus Ware came into Sunday’s game not feeling well because of a chest cold that kept him out of practice all week. He left the game with sore ribs.

Ware took a cleat to his side after attempting to tackle New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw with 4:47 left in the first quarter and missed two plays. He returned for the next series.

“I just got the wind knocked out of me,” Ware said. “I was already low in wind, so I got that knocked out and I couldn’t breathe. I was trying to say, ‘Hey, release it.’ But I got my wind back and went back out there.”

Ware said he felt fine after the game and did not believe there would be an issue going forward.
