Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware had successful elbow surgery on Tuesday to address a nerve issue that has been bothering him for two years.

Ware is expected to be ready to participate in the off-season program, which begins April 21, as well as organized team activities and minicamps.

Ware is coming off a season in which he battled back, quadriceps and elbow injuries, contributing to his career-low six sacks.

He had surgery on his right shoulder last year during the off-season.

The majority of the Cowboys staff, including owner and general manager Jerry Jones, will be in Indianapolis later this week for the NFL Scouting Combine.

Ware has a $12.25 million base salary in 2014 and will count $16 million against the salary cap. The financially strapped Cowboys might address Ware’s surgery and his contract later this week.

Ware indicated after the season that would be willing to restructure his contract to help the team but he had no interest in taking a pay cut.
