Miles Austin remains out of practice with hamstring injury

Miles Austin AP

Reports out of Dallas earlier this week said that the hamstring injury suffered by wide receiver Miles Austin last weekend was not as serious as the ones that plagued him over the last two seasons.

That doesn’t mean that he’ll be able to play in Week Four against the Chargers, however. Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Austin did not participate in Cowboys practice on Thursday, making him 0-for-2 on practices this week. Austin’s history with hamstring injuries means that the Cowboys are going to be cautious with Austin in terms of practice, but it also means they’ll likely be wary of the possibility of recurrence after seeing it happen the last two years.

Austin isn’t the only ailing wideout. Dwayne Harris thought he would be able to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session with a hip injury, but he joined Austin on the sideline.

The Chargers have struggled in pass defense this season, so the Cowboys should be able to create opportunities through the air whether it is Austin and Harris in the lineup or if Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley are running alongside Dez Bryant.

    I like Miles more than I do his removed at birth twin, Alex Rodriguez.

    Given the history, you have to sit him this week. Let’s see what Beasley can do in the slot. I think he’s hungry to make up for the preseason.

    If there is one thing that Jerry Jones truly loves it is to overpay for “talent” that he himself has “discovered.”

    In his own warped mind it proves that he is a great GM if these “hidden gems” he alone is shrewd enough to find get huge extensions and/or second contracts.

    There he is. I was waiting for when the real Miles Austin would show. You know, the guy with constant hamstring issues. I knew he would not let me down.

    Impressed he made it through camp, preseason, and 3 almost 3 games before this happened.

    Like the dude but glad it is likely his last year. He holds you hostage with his talent but it never truly happens.

    Beasley should be out there to begin with .Williams could have a breakout game. I like Austin but we can’t have this problem every season.

    He was one of my two flex guys. Not anymore. Goodbye Miles Austin, hello Josh Gordon.

    I wonder if Miles does yoga? Might help, who knows. It’s a shame, because there’s no doubt about his talent. But all the talent in the world is worthless if he can’t stay out on the field. Hope the cowboys have some receivers who can step up.

    This doesn’t help Miles “walk year”…

    I think they should be playing Beasley more anyway. A true slot WR that is difficult for defenses to keep track of.

    Dwayne Harris said before the season that Williams was pretty much drafted to replace Austin and it’s starting to look that way. He could have a good game.
