Earlier in the week, ESPN Dallas’s Calvin Watkins brought our attention to a Men’s Health magazine interview in which Miles Austin said that, following the lockout of 2011, he felt somewhat unprepared for the season. This might explain why Austin missed six games last year with hamstring issues.
But naturally, some around town were a little bothered by the idea that one of Dallas’s best players was less than ready for 2011.
Now, Austin has clarified these comments, saying that his own preparation was there--but the lack of work under the watchful eye of the team’s staff caused him to be less prepared than he would have been otherwise.
“What I meant to say is that I felt prepared. I felt prepared, but what I’m doing now with (strength and conditioning coach Mike) Woicik and our team is different than what I was doing,” Austin said, per ESPN Dallas. “I’m confident in what we’re doing now. I feel good. I’m working out every day. I mean, I was working out every day before, but now I’m working out with our strength coaches.”
