It looks like the Dallas Cowboys and wide receiver Miles Austin may have dodged a bullet.
Austin, who has had a long history of hamstring problems left Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams with a ‘hamstring tweak’ though the severity of the injury was unknown at the time.
There was concern that it could become a lingering issue, an issue which has plagued Austin for parts of two seasons, but according to ESPN Dallas the injury isn’t serious:
The Dallas Cowboys do not believe Miles Austin’s strained hamstring is as serious as the hamstring injuries that have limited the wide receiver in each of the past two seasons, a source told ESPN.com.
The Cowboys will be cautious this week with Austin, who suffered the injury in Sunday’s 31-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams, and will see how he feels Wednesday before determining if he will practice.
Of course, we won’t know the true severity until Austin gets back on the field, but all in all, looks like positive news for Austin and the Cowboys.
