Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints Injury Report; Ware Returns

The 5-4 Dallas Cowboys are going into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday night to face the 6-2 New Orleans Saints. They do so without some of their starters.  Already ruled out for this weekend’s matchup are cornerback Morris Claiborne, rookie safety J.J. Wilcox and rookie linebacker DeVonte Holloman.

Veteran wideout Miles Austin is also expected to be held out of the game on Sunday to further recover from his lingering hamstring injury. The good news appears to be the status of defensive end DeMarcus Ware. The Cowboys all-time sack leader appears ready to make his return after missing the last three games due to a quad injury. The official injury report for both teams is below as provided by
