Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he expects Miles Austin to play against the Cardinals at University of Phoenix, according to ESPN Dallas. Austin has missed three consecutive days with a hamstring injury.
Miles Austin did not practice Monday when the Dallas Cowboys returned to work after a long weekend following their Thanksgiving Day appearance, but the wide receiver could return in time for Sunday’s game at Arizona.
Jones, stated on KRLD-FM earlier today, “I saw him yesterday and he was moving around real well. (He) said he could go Sunday, but we’ll see how this week goes along.
We don’t want to push that, because we’ve got a lot of football ahead of us. By the same token, we could use him. We’ve missed him.”
Multiple issues with Austin’s hamstring have kept him out for five of the team’s 11 games this season and are 4-1 without him. Laurent Robinson has filled in for Austin and quickly made a name for himself. Robinson has seven touchdown receptions in the last five games and has twice gone over 100 yards, quickly developing chemistry with quarterback Tony Romo. Dallas will likely be cautious, because Austin might have been rushed back the first time.
