Draft Scout DeMarcus Ware News
08/25/16 - OLB DeMarcus Ware saw team-period repetitions this week, but will not play against the Rams on Saturday. Ware is being ramped back up to speed as he recovers from a lingering back problem. When he returns, he will be kept on a play count and will likely be limited to pass-rush and close-and-late situations.
08/22/16 - OLB DeMarcus Ware will be activated from the NFI list this week. He is expected to practice Tuesday, with the goal of playing Week 1 against the Panthers. Ware has not practiced since last February because of back issues.
08/18/16 - OLB DeMarcus Ware has been doing some hill sprints in his conditioning work and could be activated off the NFI list next week. The Broncos are expected to keep him on a play count once he is available for games to help prevent any recurrence of the back issues that have plagued him since last October.
08/09/16 - OLB DeMarcus Ware remains on the non-football illness list with a back problem that has kept him from practicing throughout the offseason and training camp. Ware has been beset by back woes since last October.
07/28/16 - OLB DeMarcus Ware has yet to put on cleats as the Denver Broncos ramp up their training camp regimen, but the veteran isn't in a rush to return to the field as he continues to recover from a back injury that the outside linebacker estimates left him at 70 percent toward the end of last season.
"If you do something 12 times, I think that's enough," Ware said when asked about going through training camp at this point of his career. "This is 12 years for me and I know what I'm doing. It's all about getting your body ready for the long haul. There is a 16-game season and getting ready for a postseason."
Ware stayed in Denver following the team's offseason program - which he sat out the last four weeks of - to continue to work through the back problems. He would like to get get in some game work before the end of the preseason, but acknowledged he will likely never be completely healthy at this stage of his career.
Ware insisted he could play tomorrow if the Broncos had a regular-season game, but for now he will listen to the team's trainers and Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway. In the meantime, Ware will continue his indoor work, including his role as elder statesman on the team. That includes serving as a mentor for Von Miller, who signed a record six-year, $114.5 million contract earlier this month.
