Jerry Jones says Cowboys DE Ware is ready to return
NOV 05, 2013 11:09a ET
While Jones wasn't optimistic about wide receiver Miles Austin and cornerback Morris Claiborne making a return to the field Sunday in New Orleans, he did have some positive news about Pro Bowl defensive end DeMarcus Ware, who has missed the last three games with a strained right quad.
"A lot of this soft tissue injury, these muscle pulls, there's a decision," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]." It's sensitive but the player can still play, but there's risk that he could re-injure it. That's the key. It's when you have to make that ambiguous decision almost … but you have to make a tough decision as to when to really put the stress on the muscle or on the injury situation. I think he's ready."
Jones confirmed that running back DeMarco Murray, who returned last week from a sprained knee, is healthy but said Austin and Claiborne are "doubtful" with hamstring injuries.
"They did some good work yesterday," Jones said. "We'll see what they do today. I can't really say whether they'll be on the field against New Orleans or not."
