Although on Sunday the New York Giants took a rough 36-25 loss against the Seahawks, D.J. Ware finally got a shot at running back.
“I knew my chance would come one day. When it (does), I just got to make sure I’m prepared. I can’t do anything about something I can’t control,” said Ware prior to Sunday’s game.
Due to a Brandon Jacobs knee injury, the team was in need for a look down the depth chart to replace Jacobs in Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. Ware was next in line to get a chance in the running game alongside teammate Ahmad Bradshaw.
Ware rushed four times for three yards and caught a 22-yard pass in Sunday’s loss. Due to lack of blocking on the defensive end, Ware was tackled for a safety.
Last year’s game against Seattle, Ware had 13 carries for 66 yards ending as a 41-7 victory over the Seahawks.
Unfortunately, Ware’s season debut didn’t turn out as well as last years game against the Seahawks.
Ware, 26, is in his 5th year with the Giants. Following the end of the lockout, the Giants re-signed Ware to a 2-year contract worth $2.2 million.
This won’t be the last we see of Ware for the season. As a third stringer, we should see a decent amount of play from the 26 year old.
“Whenever they call on me,” Ware said, “my goal is to go out there and make them realize that’s the position I play, running back, and that’s what I’m meant to play.”
