Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is once again fighting off injuries and trying to remain healthy. Austin had remained healthy throughout training camp and was looking forward ton having a bounce back year but was bite by the injury bug early.
From ESPN Dallas:
Wide receiver Miles Austin has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury and team officials say he’s progressing in his rehab.
Austin played a big role in the season opener, a win over the New York Giants. He caught 10 passes for 72 yards. In the two games after that Austin’s production dropped off. He caught 5 passes for 53 yards in the following two games.
The Cowboys are struggling with depth at wide receiver and the majority of the passing game has landed on the shoulders of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. Not necessarily a bad tandem of pass-catchers, but Austin being on the field helps spread things out and free up those two.
The Cowboys in the meantime are left with Terrance Williams as the second receiver. He has been inconsistent and toes the line between exciting and dynamic and mistake prone rookie.
