Miles Austin injury: Cowboys WR misses another day of practice

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas may be without one of its starting receivers on Sunday against the Chargers.

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin continues to miss practice with a hamstring injury, according to Brandon George of Dallas Morning News. Austin missed his second-straight practice on Thursday and is looking questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers in San Diego. The wide receiver injured his hamstring during Week 3's win against the Rams.

Fellow wide receiver Dwayne Harris joined Austin on the sidelines during practice, per George. If Austin is unable to play, rookie Terrance Williams will start in his place. However, even if Austin can play, Williams will still likely get a lot of the veteran's playing time. Williams was a third-round pick out of Baylor in this year's draft and has five catches for 60 yards in three games this season.

The Cowboys will have another practice on Friday before traveling to San Diego this weekend. The Chargers host Dallas at 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox.
