Miles Austin's Injury Likely To Keep Him Out Again

The Dallas Cowboys will likely be without wide receiver Miles Austin again this week. Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reported today that owner and general manager Jerry Jones said that he did not believe Austin will play this weekend. Austin was not practicing with the team today. 

Austin is dealing with a hamstring injury that has kept him out of action for the Cowboys' last three games. Austin last played in week 9.

While the Cowboys would no doubt like to have Austin back in the lineup, they have been winning without him, going 3-0 over that same stretch. Laurent Robinson, a free agent picked up earlier in the season, has thrived in Austin's place, scoring three touchdowns in Dallas' last two games. 

Dallas leads the New York Giants by one game in the NFC East race, with a prime time showdown between both teams scheduled for next week.

Miles Austin Injury: Out 2-4 Weeks For Cowboys, According To Report

The Dallas Cowboys are expected to be without Miles Austin for 2-4 weeks, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas. Austin injured his hamstring in Sunday's victory over the Seattle Seahawks and did not return to the game.

It's believed that Austin actually aggravated the same hamstring injury that cost him a couple of games earlier this season. If that's the case, it's a tough blow for a Cowboys team that needs to keep up with the New York Giants in the NFC East.

Austin finished Sunday's game with two receptions for 53 yards. Assuming he can't go next week, it'll be Laurent Robinson stepping in for him.

This is a tough stretch to lose a player like Austin. The Cowboys will play three games in 11 days, including their Thanksgiving day matchup. That means Austin could easily miss all three of those game, if the FOX Sports report is accurate.

Miles Austin Injury Update: Dallas Cowboys WR Aggravates Hamstring Injury

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin cannot seem to catch a break as he aggravated the hamstring injury that cost him two games earlier in the season. Austin came up lame on a deep ball and finished the game with two receptions for 53 yards. He did not return to the game and his status moving forward is questionable.

Austin looked ready to blow up this season as he opened with 233 yards and four touchdowns through the first two games of the season. However, late in the Cowboys victory over the 49ers, Austin strained his hamstring. He missed the next two games and has struggled to get anything going since then. Over the last four games he has caught a combined 14 passes for 170 yards and no touchdowns.

We'll keep an eye on the practice participation reports this week, but if the injury is anything like his last hamstring injury, Austin could miss a game or two. We'll have updates throughout the week.

Miles Austin Injury Update: Cowboys WR Re-Aggravates Hamstring

Miles Austin has been battling a hamstring injury most of the season, and he's once again been sidelined. According to ESPN's John Clayton, Austin is out and will not return this week. The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver re-aggravated the injury on a first quarter catch and has not played since. 

Prior to getting hurt, Austin had two catches for 53 yards, including one that went for 37 yards. That happened to be the catch where he hurt himself, too.

Austin has been battling the injury ever since training camp and has previously missed several weeks.

In his place, Laurent Robinson has been getting most of the playing time. He has four catches for 26 yards while playing alongside Dez Bryant.
