The Dallas Cowboys take on the division rival Washington Redskins on Sunday Night Football in prime time, but there were concerns about whether or not they would be without wide receiver Miles Austin. Now, we have an answer.
With nearly 10 hours until kickoff, it is being reported that Austin is expected to suit up and start the game on NBC.
From Bryan Broaddus of the Dallas Cowboys official website:

The Redskins secondary has been horrific all season long, so having Austin in the line up gives the Cowboys a better opportunity to light up the secondary and scoreboard as they look to stay atop the NFC East.
With Austin back in the line up, you can expect rookie Terrance Williams to occupy the No. 3 spot, while Dwayne Harris comes in as the No. 4 receiver.
Washington has a tough task ahead, so they will need to buckle up and slow down the soaring Cowboys passing attack.
