Miles Austin, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, has sat out practice on Friday, marking his second day in a row of not participating. However, Cowboys fans, there is a glimmer of light regarding his injury. Head coach Jason Garrett hasn’t mentioned any sort of further setback with Austin’s injury, and that he’s sitting out for precautionary reasons.

Via ESPN:

“Just watching him and seeing how he’s doing coming back off the injury and making sure we’re doing the right things and rest is part of the equation for him as it would be for anybody,” Garrett said.

Austin played last week against the Washington Redskins but did not have a catch after missing the previous two games. Austin ran some routes off to the side as the offense worked.

There is reason to believe that Austin will be on the field for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, as he is listed as probable. Austin has just 15 catches for 125 yards with no touchdowns, but it looks like he will get chances on Sunday to improve upon his season totals. Barring any kind of setback, it is expected that Austin will be on the field for at least some offensive plays.
