Cowboys News And Notes: Ware, Lee, Anderson Miss Practice

DeMarcus Ware was held out of practice Wednesday, but should be good to go for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.
DeMarcus Ware was held out of practice Wednesday, but should be good to go for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

DeMarcus Ware, Sean Lee and Deon Anderson were all held out of practice today.

Ware was held out for precautionary reasons, after suffering a neck stinger (strain) during the fourth quarter of Sunday night's game against the Redskins.

Lee has a strained hamstring, which he sustained on the first punt return of the game against the Redskins. He failed to tell anyone about the injury, and continued to play, which according to Wade Phillips, hindered the effectiveness of the coverage units on special teams and further strained Lee's hamstring.

Lee is likely to miss Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Anderson missed practice with what the team believes is a knee injury, and is investigating into how severe it may be.

More news and notes, after the jump...

- Cornerback Bryan McCann, who was released by the Cowboys during final cuts and swiftly claimed by the Baltimore Ravens, was cut this morning to make room for return man Prince Miller.

The Cowboys were hopeful after cutting McCann that they'd be able to sign him to the practice squad. McCann is still on waivers, which would mean if the Cowboys wanted to claim him, they would have to release a player from their 53-man roster -- which is unlikely.

- Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett spoke to reporters this afternoon and took responsibility for the decision of calling for a Hail Mary pass, just before the half, from the Cowboys 36-yard line.

"I called the play. It's my responsibility," said Garrett.

He then admitted that he should have just called for a knee, "That was a situation where we should have just taken a knee and should have gone into the locker room."

- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler spoke to reporters today and said he doesn't believe the Cowboys are in any trouble.

"They're [Dallas]  going to get better and better," said Cutler.

He also believes that the Bears can only be stopped by one team...

"The only people [team] that can stop us, is ourselves," said Cutler

- Linebackers Lance Briggs (ankle) and Nick Roach (hamstring) of the Bears were held out of practice today.

Running back Matt Forte (knee) and wide receiver Devin Aromashodu (knee) were limited.
