ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos linebacker and team captain DeMarcus Ware has played his final game for the 2016 season — and some are speculating it could be the end of his NFL career.

The Broncos placed Ware, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and potential Hall of Famer, on injured reserve Wednesday because of a back injury.

Ware, who turns 35 in July, is in the final year of a three-year contract with the Broncos.

He fractured his forearm in a Week 2 win over Indianapolis and returned to face San Diego in Week 8.

Ware will finish the season playing in 10 game, recording 15 tackles and four sacks.
