With the Denver Broncos eliminated from playoff elimination ahead of their regular season finale against the Oakland Raiders, it makes sense for Denver to rest some of their key guys.
This applies to veteran defensive end DeMarcus Ware, who has been battling back problems dating back to 2015. On Wednesday, the team announced Ware has been placed on season-ending injury reserve.
In 10 games, Ware totaled 4.5 sacks.
