Ware (forearm) has been ruled out for Week 4.
Ware was given a 4-to-5 week timetable for return after undergoing surgery on his forearm less than two weeks ago, making the announcement that he won't play on Sunday unsurprising. Look for Shane Ray to see added time in Ware's absence once again.
Ware's forearm surgery will likely keep him sidelined for a few more weeks as he preps for a Week 7 return to action. Shane Ray could be the guy the
Ware was initially thought to be facing a three-week sideline stint, but coach Gary Kubiak has since revealed that his absence may actually last a week or two longer. His surgery Tuesday will include having a plate inserted in his arm, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Regardless of the corresponding timetable, the veteran outside linebacker won't be available in the immediate future, which figures to result in more playing time for Shane Ray, Shaw Barrett and Dekoda Watson in the coming weeks.
Ware broke the bone in his right forearm during a collision with teammate Von Miller while making a sack Sunday. The veteran eventually left the game following the incident and is now anticipated to miss Denver's next three games. That figures to result in Shane Ray being promoted to the starting lineup, with Shaq Barrett and Dekoda Watson also candidates to see extended playing time in Ware's absence.
The injury occurred on a second-quarter sack of Andrew Luck that Ware shared with Von Miller. After attempting to gut it out, Ware left the game for good during the first defensive series of the second half and later had his right arm in a sling in the locker room. According to Mike Klis of 9News, X-rays are on tap Monday, after which a prognosis should come into focus.
