The Dallas Cowboys have been fighting injuries all season long, primarily on the defense and to wide receiver Miles Austin. The Cowboys got another dose of bad news when Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said wide receiver Terrance Williams is dealing with a hamstring injury.
The result is Williams missing practice on Wednesday and has him in doubt for Sunday’s game. Initial reports seem to lean towards him not playing on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
The Cowboys desperately need a win in the game if they’re going to win the NFC East and make the playoffs. That leaves Dez Bryant, Austin, and Cole Beasley to carry the load. In four games since returning from injury, Austin has just six catches for 89 yards and no touchdowns.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said WR Terrance Williams has a hamstring injury. He was limping Monday. Don’t look for him to play Sunday.
