Ware (forearm) is ruled out for Sunday's game, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

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 Broncos lean on during Ware's absence.

Ware (forearm) is scheduled to have surgery Tuesday to repair his fractured ulna, which could result in a 4-5 week absence, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ware was initially thought to be facing a three-week sideline stint, but coach Gary Kubiak has since revealed that his absence may last a week or two longer. Regardless, 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.

Ware (elbow) is expected to miss at least three weeks after suffering a fractured ulna Sunday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Ware suffered a fractured ulna in his right forearm during Sunday's victory against the Colts, The Denver Post reports. "Let me be careful here. I just know he has a fracture," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "I think the questions are going to be, is it something he might be able to play with that you rest, or something that we go fix right away and he misses a period of time, then he goes back."

EDGE Analysis

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.

Ware suffered an elbow injury during the third quarter of Sunday's game and is questionable to return, Mike Klis of NBC 9News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ware collided with Von Miller while attempting to sack Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and immediately grasped his arm. The injury didn't appear to be incredibly serious, but more will be known about the status of his injury as time moves on. In the meantime, expect Shane Ray to see additional snaps at outside linebacker.

Ware registered three tackles and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Ware was on a snap count Thursday after missing the entire preseason with a balky back - something that is expected to continue throughout the season. Ware proved on Thursday that fewer snaps won't necessarily mean less production as the veteran rusher was utilized on key passing downs and was able to pin his ears back and get to the quarterback.

Head coach Gary Kubiak declared Ware (undisclosed) is fine, but will be playing under a snap count Week 1.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Ware is healthy enough to play and will more than likely start in Week 1's Super Bowl rematch. Either way, though, he'll be playing under a snap restriction. Because of such, Shane Ray is in line to see extended action.

Ware (undisclosed) practiced in half-speed team drills Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Broncos looked like their old selves Wednesday with the returns of both Aqib Talib and Ware. While the quarterback dilemma is likely to linger on all season long, having Ware back on the field is a huge boost, regardless of form. In just 11 games last season, the 34-year-old registered 7.5 sacks to compliment 25 combined tackles. Ware is an unquestionable leader of Denver's defense, and the mere sight of him on the practice field is likely to lift team spirits.

Ware (undisclosed) has been removed from the non-football injury list and will practice on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

It was initially announced that Ware would return to practice next week, but it seems the team decided to bring him back a bit sooner. The veteran linebacker has been medically cleared to play for a few weeks now, but the team has been keeping him out to allow him to rest so that he's fresh for the regular season. At this point he isn't expected to play in Denver's final two preseason games, allowing Shane Ray to continue to see snaps with the starting unit.
