Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin left Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with injured ribs and was taken to the locker room for x-rays. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin left Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with injured ribs and was taken to the locker room for x-rays. The status of his possible return is unknown at this point. Despite a quiet day from the Cowboys' passing attack, Austin had five catches for 107 yards before leaving the game.

Fantasy Imact: Miles Austin has developed quite the injury history. He missed time last season and this preseason with a hamstring injury and now has a rib injury to deal with. After a strong opening week against the Giants, the Cowboys haven't been able to get much going through the air in recent weeks.
