Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware set for elbow surgery
Ware had only six sacks during an injury-plagued 2013, after recording 11.5 sacks in 2012 and 19.5 in 2011.
"It's been killing me," Ware said, via ESPN.com. "It's hurt really bad and that's why I would wear an elbow pad to stop from getting it hit but that didn't do much. It would get irritated even when it was barely touched."
Ware, 31, says once the elbow problem is addressed he will be back to his old self.
"Rest helped it. I'm getting my work in. I'm pushing up 315, 405 (pounds) and I'm doing everything, running. My body feels great. Straight up, it feels really, really good. My quad, I can do all of that. I can do everything," Ware said.
