Cowboys DeMarcus Ware is wearing a sling on his surgically repaired right shoulder, and he said Thursday it appears he will have to have a minor procedure on his elbow.

"Just to get the bone fragments cleaned up," Ware said from radio row at the Super Bowl, where he is making the rounds.

Ware was slowed by several injuries this season, the biggest being the injuries to his right arm. He hyperextended his right elbow in a December game against the Bengals and later injured his shoulder against the Saints. The torn posterior labrum was repaired Jan. 10.

He wore a brace on his elbow and a harness to protect his shoulder, and he admits the injuries prevented him from performing the way he is accustomed. Ware had only 1.5 sacks the last six games to finish with 11.5. He did make his seventh Pro Bowl but did not play in the all-star game last weekend.
