Cowboys receiver Miles Austin suffered a hamstring injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams. He has just two catches for 22 yards with the Cowboys up three scores in the fourth quarter.
Not good. Austin has dealt with hamstring injuries for much of his career and there really is no such thing as a minor strain for him. In recent years, he has missed months with this type of issue and chances are he could miss even more time. The Monmouth product needed to rest his hamstrings in the preseason and he also spent time attempting to strengthen them in the offseason.
Fantasy impact: Apparently, his strengthening didn't work. Austin's value takes a sizable hit here and the Cowboys could be preparing not to have him in the lineup next week against the Chargers. Dez Bryant will be the apple of Tony Romo's eye and Jason Witten will be popular on third down. Terrence Williams and Dwyane Haris figure to be the waiver-wire choices in deep leagues as speculative adds. Harris did score, so he gets the edge for experience, too. Williams does have higher upside.
