Report: Ware will have surgery for bone spur

Give DeMarcus Ware credit.

He’s playing in the Pro Bowl. With an injury.

The Dallas Cowboys linebacker will have surgery to shave a bone spur in his left foot shortly after he returns from Sunday’s game, reports Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News.

"This is sort of like a treat for you, and you just take it in," Ware told Archer of his fourth consecutive all-star appearance.

The pass rushing ace played for the majority of the season with a stress fracture in his left foot. He had a wrist fracture and suffered a neck injury in a scary incident vs. San Diego.

If more players adopted Ware’s attitude when it comes to the Pro Bowl, the NFL might not have so much angst when it came to its all-star game. More players would, you know, actually show up to play in the game.
