DeMarcus Ware has not practiced this week but the Cowboys outside linebacker said he will play Sunday against the Redskins in a game that will determine the winner of the NFC East.

Ware, who was selected to his seventh Pro Bowl on Wednesday, has recorded 11.5 sacks and forced five fumbles despite being bothered by a hyper-extended elbow and a strained right shoulder that may require surgery in the off-season.

“I’m feeling good enough to play on Sunday,” he told the Dallas Morning News. “So I’ve been just doing treatment and getting ready.”

Ware addressed the fact that the combination of injuries have diminished his productivity late in the season.

“It’s just something you’ve got to fight through,” Ware said.
