IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware could play Saturday night despite a neck injury from a scary collision.
Coach Wade Phillips said Monday that Ware is "a lot better" and is considered day to day. The coach described the injury as a neck strain.
Ware spent several hours in the hospital Sunday after he was hurt in the fourth quarter of a 20-17 loss to the San Diego Chargers.
The Cowboys are 8-5 and have dropped a game behind Philadelphia in the NFC East. They play at undefeated New Orleans on Saturday night.
