Last week, Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware told reporters at Valley Ranch that he hasn't been cleared to participate in mini camp this week. But Ware, who had shoulder surgery in January, expects to return to action at training camp next month.
On Monday, Ware told the NFL Networks "NFL AM" show that if the Cowboys had a game today, he'd be on the field.
"I feel like if I had to put the pads on today, I'd be fine, and I'd be ready to play," he said.
Not too surprising considering Ware played through a torn labrum and a hyperextend elbow last season, never missing a start.
"I'm not 100 percent," Ware said Thursday. "But I'm good enough to play."
Ware, who has only missed one start in his eight-year career, led the Cowboys in sacks last season with 11.5.
Although Ware has led the team in sacks every season since he was drafted, his 2012 total was tied for the third-lowest of his career. Perhaps moving from outside linebacker to defensive end will put Ware back among the league leaders in that category.
"Going from 3-4 outside linebacker to playing defensive end is actually a little bit easier because you don't have to worry about a lot of formations in the drops," Ware told the NFL Network. "So you get more opportunity to rush the passer, so it's a lot easier, you can be a lot more aggressive because you don't have to think as much."

IRVING, Texas Tony Romo said Tuesday that he thinks the offensive backgrounds of Bill Callahan and Jason Garrett will "blend together nicely" for the Dallas Cowboys.
It was revealed last week that Callahan has replaced Garrett as the team's offensive play-caller, a change that Romo said won't be significant from a quarterback's perspective.

According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com the Cowboys will sign former Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Jeris Pendleton, after they make the necessary roster move to clear space for him.
At age 29, Pendleton is only a year removed from college, after taking six years off following high school before joining Joliet Junior College as a walk-on. He would then go on to transfer to...
According to ProFootballTalk.com, ESPN’s Ed Werder says the reason the Dallas Cowboys haven’t released Josh Brent is because they believe he’ll one day be a contributor on the field for them.
Brent’s legal problems make it unlikely that he’ll play at all this year. Even if he were to escape going to prison, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will probably suspend him for a...

for the Dallas Cowboys next season.
I'm normally the first person to say as Buffalo fans, we shouldn't throw stones at any other team because, well, we kind of suck at sports. But last week, I couldn't help but laugh my ass off at how badly the Dallas Cowboys looked when it came to figuring out who was going to call the offensive plays.
Bill Callahan? Really? The guy who hasn't called offensive...
