Miles Austin out for Sunday’s game with Chargers

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin’s hamstring injury might not be as bad as the ones from the last two years, but it is bad enough to keep him out of this Sunday’s matchup with the Chargers.

The Cowboys had an easy choice to make regarding Austin after he missed practice all three days this week. Austin will take the weekend to continue resting and healing in hopes of making his return to the lineup against the Broncos in Week Five.

Wide receiver Dwayne Harris is listed as questionable after practicing on Friday. Harris says his hip is feeling well enough for him to return to the lineup.

“Monday I couldn’t even move,” Harris said, via ESPNDallas.com. “It feels so much better. I’m not worried about it. I played the whole game Sunday with the same thing.”

Having Harris on hand should help the Cowboys attack one of the league’s leakiest pass defenses, but rookie Terrance Williams will also be in line for a bigger role with Austin out of the lineup.
