Ware announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Ware hangs up his cleats as the league's eighth all-time leader in sacks (138.5). The 34-year-old spent his final three seasons in Denver, where he won last year's Super Bowl, but he'll be most remembered for the wildly successful start to his career in Dallas. The 11th overall pick out of Troy in 2005, Ware registered at least 11 sacks in seven of his nine seasons with the Cowboys, including a whopping 20 in 2008, when he was named NFC Defensive Player of the Year. Overall, Ware was selected to nine Pro Bowls across his 12-year career, which is likely to be capped off by him being inducted into the Hall of Fame before long.

Ware (back) plans to return for the 2017 season, and hopes he remains with the Broncos, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ware played just 10 games this season due to forearm and back injuries, resulting in career lows in tackles (15) and sacks (4.0), and is now slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. At 34 years old, Ware is looking forward to his 13th NFL season, which he wants to take place in Denver. According to Ware, new Broncos coach Vance Joseph has given him promising indications regarding his future with the team, but it still remains to be seen whether general manager John Elway will re-sign him knowing Denver already boasts Von Miller, Shane Ray and Shaq Barrett at outside linebacker. Although Ware is also coming off surgery to repair a ruptured disk in his back, the fact that he expects to be cleared for all activities in two weeks bodes well for him being ready ahead of the 2017 campaign.

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) is active for Week 8's game against the Chargers, Mike Klis of NBC 9News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ware has been out since Week 2 with a fractured bone in his right forearm, but will finally return to action against the Chargers. His presence should trigger an immediate improvement in the Broncos' pass rush, as he had two sacks on the year prior to getting hurt.

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.

EDGE Analysis

Ware will attempt to get on the field for the first time since fracturing his forearm against the Colts in Week 2. The veteran linebacker's status for Week 8 is still in question, hinging on his participation in practice this week.

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.
