The Dallas Cowboys earned a road victory without seven-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware in Week 7, but owner Jerry Jones is hopeful that the team won’t be without his contributions for much longer as they travel to face the Detroit Lions in Week 8.
On Tuesday morning, Jones said on his weekly radio show that the team is being cautious about the veteran’s return from a thigh injury (via Calvin Watkins of ESPN):
“We’re in good shape at running back [but] I wish we were in that good of shape at defensive end regarding Ware,” Jones said. “We want to watch this. He’s got the type of injury that if it comes back to fast, he doesn’t have a tear there now, he doesn’t have an imperfection. If he tries and goes too early he could get an imperfection that’s another world relative to how he’ll be back.”
There’s a new team atop the power rankings this week, as the majority of the major media outlets rank the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs as the top team in the NFL. It’s far from unanimous though. One source doesn’t even consider the Chiefs a top-five team after an early schedule that featured only one team with a winning record: the Dallas Cowboys.
Just a hair behind the Chiefs and second in most rankings are the Seattle Seahawks, who earned a victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football. The notable tumbler of the week was the Denver Broncos after holding the top spot for the majority of the early weeks of the season, falling Cheap NHL Jerseys to fourth instead.
Surging up the rankings after Week 7 were the Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale San Diego Chargers, New York Jets and Carolina Panthers, each jumping at least five spots with victories. Heading in the opposite direction are the St. Louis Rams, who lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the season in a loss to the Panthers and dropped seven spots.
At the bottom of the rankings, the Jacksonville Jaguars still have a hold on last place, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to inch closer to being the NFL’s most futile team.
