Hello everyone. Welcome to another live Cowboys chat. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Big game Sunday. So, fire away with questions and I'll try to get to as many of them as possible in the next hour or so. Thanks for joining us on a Wednesday afternoon.

Well, Ware could make the Pro Bowl. Many times even if a player has a down year, which Ware is having, his reputation will still help him get in the game. You do have to give Ware credit for playing through injuries. He doesn't miss games and has had to battle hamstring, shoulder and elbow injuries this year. The Cowboys expect him to play Sunday.

No, he's still out. He could return if the Cowboys get in the playoffs but it's doubtful he'd be ready for that first-round game.

The defense is running on empty as the Cowboys get to the finish line. There's no doubt about that. They've been hit hard by injuries and even when they were healthier a few weeks ago RG3 had his way with the Cowboys. It helps that RG3 isn't as mobile right now, it seems, because of his injury, but how much? The Redskins have won six in a row and the Cowboys will have their hands full Sunday night. I lean toward Washington, but I haven't made my pick yet.

I would say Charlie Peprah at this point would be the best fit among others who are left, excluding Sensabaugh. His experience in big games helps, too.

Wow, you're really looking down the line here. Jason Garrett wouldn't approve of that. I believe the Cowboys will focus on the offensive line and also look to add a pass-rusher along the DL. I'll be at the Senior Bowl at the end of January and look forward to seeing some of the top players from this year's senior class.

No, that's not likely to happen. I've said for a while now that the day Garrett gives up play-calling duties is the day he has one foot out the door. He wants to call the plays on offense and he's not going to give that up without a fight.

All the players say it doesn't really bother them that much. And they were happy to be practicing indoors today. Marcus Spears talked about how cold it was this morning and he wanted no part of practicing outside. The Redskins practiced indoors as well ...

Anthony Spencer is who is deserving but might not make the cut. He's had a great year, the best of his career, and has been a more complete player than Ware this season.

Sacks are down this year, but the two games before Sunday's loss to the Saints the Cowboys combined for nine sacks. That's getting pressure. I know it wasn't always there, but the Cowboys felt like their improved secondary allowed them to play teams more honest. Not having a healthy Ware hasn't helped.
