Miles Austin disappoints fantasy owners again, leaves game with hamstring injury

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Austin recorded two catches for 22 yards against the Rams on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Miles Austin finished Sunday with two catches for 22 yards. He left the game during the third quarter after tweaking his hamstring. The extent of Austin's injury is yet to be determined, but Austin was watching the remainder of Dallas' win over the Rams from the sideline in uniform.

Fantasy impact: For the second week in a row, Austin disappointed fantasy owners who started him. Even with St. Louis' defense putting their focus on shutting down Dez Bryant, Austin couldn't make much happen before exiting the game. Austin's injury simply makes matters worse, as Austin has dealt with hamstring injuries for several seasons now. Fantasy owners should proceed with caution. Austin's injury could keep him out of Week 4. He'll be lucky to overcome his nagging hammy sooner rather than later. Even if Austin suits up against the Chargers, he'll be difficult to trust from a fantasy perspective.
