Receiver Miles Austin’s chances of playing against the Chargers on Sunday took a major shot on Friday when he was held out of practice once again. Austin hasn’t practiced all week after tweaking his hamstring in the win over the Rams last Sunday and usually, if a player doesn’t participate in Friday’s practice, they’re held out of that week’s game.
There’s still a small chance that he will go, but due to Austin’s long history with hamstring issues, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday--echoing Jason Garrett’s sentiments from earlier in the week--that Dallas will proceed with caution where Austin is concerned.
"I really don’t have a feel for it," Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. "He hasn’t practiced. If anything, because of the last two years, we’ll be conservative in that decision at game time."
