NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that DeMarcus Ware is expected to miss three to four weeks after straining his quadriceps muscle, per a source who spoke with the pass rusher.
Losing Ware is crippling. He remains one of the NFC's premier edge rushers and a solid run-stuffer. We've been impressed with the inside pressure Jason Hatcher has created this season, but Ware's absence can't be masked. He told reporters he could barely walk after the game and it seemed obvious he wouldn't immediately return.
