Ware (back) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ware injured his back in Saturday's game against the Chiefs. The specifics of the injury are unclear but it was enough to keep him out of Week 17, and with the Broncos eliminated from the playoffs they had no reason to keep him on the roster if he couldn't play this week. He ends his 12th season with 15 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, in 10 games played, all career lows.

Ware (forearm) returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his forearm in mid-September, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ware hasn't yet been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers, in what could be his first game action since Week 2. If he's able to play, the Broncos could limit his reps leaving Shane Ray with an opportunity for an expanded role at weakside linebacker.

Ware (forearm) is expected to return to the practice field this week, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post reports.

Ware (forearm) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Ware was not expected to be able to return this week, so the designation comes as no surprise. The veteran has been held out since suffering a fracture in his right forearm Week 2, and will look to return Week 8 against the Chargers, though he will need to be able to participate in practice before doing so. Look for Shane Ray to get the start in Ware's place.

Ware (forearm) was held out of Thursday practice, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

This announcement comes as no surprise as it was previously announced that Ware was unlikely to play in Week 7 due to the forearm injury that has sidelined him the past four weeks. Shane Ray will continue to see extra reps while Ware is out.
