The hamstring injury suffered by Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin isn't considered to be as serious as the problems that slowed the two-time Pro Bowler in each of the last two seasons, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.
Austin, 29, made consecutive Pro Bowls in 2009 and 2010, but was unable to exceed 1,000 yards receiving in 2011 and 2012 due to nagging hamstring problems. In the third quarter of Sunday's 31-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams, Austin pulled up with a hamstring strain as he tried to pull in a deep pass from Tony Romo.
After the game, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said that Austin likely could have been available late in the game, if he needed. Still, Archer reports the team will be cautious with the receiver in practice to avoid further problems for the receiver.
Through three games, Austin has recorded 15 receptions for 125 yards receiving, but doesn't yet have a touchdown.
