Report: Miles Austin’s hamstring injury not as serious as past woes

The Cowboys had pretty much everything go right for them offensively on Sunday.

DeMarco Murray ran the ball a lot and he ran it well behind an offensive line that helped him out while also keeping Tony Romo from feeling much pressure during a turnover-free performance. The only thing that went wrong was the departure of wide receiver Miles Austin with a left hamstring injury.

Austin has been limited by hamstring injuries in each of the last two seasons, but Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com reports that the team does not think that Austin’s current issue is as serious as those problems. The current plan is to see how he feels on Wednesday before coming up with a plan for practice during the week. It’s probably safe to assume he’ll be limited at best when the week starts.

Terrence Williams and Dwayne Harris would be in line for more action if Austin isn’t able to play against the Chargers in Week Four.

    Hamstring and Miles Austin go hand in hand, the dude has the same issues every year.

    Who cares he a 5th WR on any team except for the girls. Who think else and that’s why they are a sorry team.

    He will want to make sure he is healthy this weekend so he can set career highs against the “secondary” the Chargers will field. Nate Washington had over 100 yards receiving this past week. What do you think Dez, Witten, and Austin will do? Sure does get lonely in Florida sometimes haha.

    “Who think else and that’s why they are a sorry team.”

    That’s really profound.

    You people keep blaming Miles but honestly this leg injury was all on Tony. He baits his receivers straight to the CB or safety. Tony got Miles legs lit up.

    He likely only has a few “Miles” left on those hams.
