Miles Austin Injury Update: Hip, hamstring make him a risky fantasy play

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Miles Austin has hip and hamstring issues and is questionable for Sunday.

Miles Austin (hip/hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's matchup with the Eagles.

Austin has been a letdown to owners with just 49 catches for 727 yards and four TDs this season.

Fantasy Impact: Austin has been probable for essentially the entire season with his perpetually injured hamstring, but this week there's a chance he might sit. It would appear the hip injury is a bigger concern since that's what was being worked on in the Cowboy's last game on Thanksgiving.

Austin getting a few extra days should help his cause and he's very likely to suit up. The problem is that he plays on a late game, so if for some reason he gets the inactive tag, his owners might be in a serious bind.

If for some reason you want to start Austin, we'd suggest handcuffing him to Dwayne Harris just in case.
