If Ware doesn't suit up Sunday, it would be the first game he has missed in his career, breaking a streak of 134 consecutive starts.
Dallas was already without Pro Bowl left defensive end Anthony Spencer and nose tackle Jay Ratliff. Both are likely out for the season.
The Cowboys play at Philadelphia on Sunday.

ESPN reported that Cobb, who has 29 receptions for 378 yards and two touchdowns this season, will miss two games.

"All I can say is Robbie is dying to play. He wants to get out there," Diane Gronkowski told the Boston Herald on Sunday. "He's doing what he has to do to get back playing. He doesn't like it. He wants to play. It really bothers him that he's not playing."
