Miles Austin feeling no hamstring setbacks

It seems like every year we learn of a Miles Austin injury during training camp — usually a strained hamstring — but this year the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was able to stay healthy and prepare for what he hopes will be a big season.

Austin still had a productive season in 2012, but having a receiver that is not bothered by a nagging hamstring issue will only help the Cowboys offense and passing attack.

“We were all very proud of how Miles played last year because he wasn’t himself,” head coach Jason Garrett said, via ESPN Dallas. “He had a very productive year for us playing opposite Dez and opposite Witt in our passing game, and did a lot of good things for us, but he seems like he’s back to what we’ve seen in the past. He has quickness. He has explosiveness.”

Miles is also going to benefit from having Dez Bryant on the opposite side of the field, so this could be an exciting season for the Cowboys and their offense moving forward.
