Miles Austin has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, a problem that has plagued him recently in his career. In the season opening win over the New York Giants a healthy Austin played a big role catching 10 passes for 72 yards. Since that first game he struggled, in the following two games he caught a combined 5 passes for a total of 53 yards.
Nevertheless, the Cowboys need Austin back on the field and him returning to practice is good news.
From ESPN Dallas:
For the first time in two weeks, Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Austin, who missed the last two games with a strained hamstring, is expected to play in Sunday night’s game against the Washington Redskins.
The Cowboys will have a tough challenge trying to get their third win of the season against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night Football. The Redskins are coming off a bye and have had more time to rest and game plan for the Cowboys.
Fortunately for the Cowboys, their defense ranks 28th against the pass and 31st against the run. The Cowboys are hoping they can take advantage of those weaknesses but when two teams know each other as well as these two do, that is easier said than done.
