By having the surgery now, he feels that he should be back in time to take part in almost the entire offseason program. He also said that the surgery should fix a problem that has been bothering him for the past two seasons.

DeMarcus Ware is the Dallas Cowboys' all-time leading sack leader with 117 total sacks, surpassing names like Randy White and Ed "Too Tall" Jones. However, he just finished the worst season of his career, where he only played in 13 games and finished with a career low six sacks.

He had never missed a game before 2013 and his lowest sack total prior to this season was his rookie year of 2005 where he only recorded eight. He has been in double digits every other year of his career and had one season in 2008 when he recorded 20. In 2012, he only recorded 11.5 sacks and it looked like his career might be winding down.

DeMarcus Ware admitted that the injured elbow had been "killing me" and that it got irritated every time anything touched it. There was an exposed nerve when he bent his arm, and he would lose power when he was hit. He said this surgery will protect that nerve.
