It hasn’t prevented him from practicing but Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware has a neck strain that he suffered in Monday night’s game with the Panthers.

For precautionary reasons, Ware was wearing a neck brace before practice. However he was expected to have full participation for Wednesday’s practice.

Through three games, Ware has not recorded a sack - that after posting 20.0 sacks in 2008 to lead the entire NFL. Ware is tied with Jason Hatcher for the Cowboys’ lead with six quarterback pressures and he does have 19 tackles with one for loss.

The Cowboys are very thin at outside linebacker behind Ware and Anthony Spencer. The Cowboys have rookie Victor Butler, who had two sacks on the final drive against Carolina with a forced fumble, along with young veterans Steve Octavien and Curtis Johnson.
