Blue Star’s own Josh Alper wrote a post yesterday concerning the status of receiver Miles Austin, who has been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury. More specifically, he wrote that, after re-aggravating the injury, Austin’s preseason was most likely over.
This is somewhat troubling for many fans, what with the very dangerous but decidedly thin pool of playmakers on the roster--but as for the team itself, they don’t seem overly concerned. Head coach Jason Garrett, in discussing Austin on Wednesday, downplayed the injury, describing the receiver as day-to-day before praising the work he’s done throughout training camp and the preseason.
“I feel great about him,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “He’s had an outstanding camp. Really one of the things that we have to guard against with a lot of guys on our team is we practice hard, we practice at a fast tempo and he’s one of the guys that really sets the pace for everything so we have to constantly watch him and be careful of him getting too much stuff done in practice.
“He’s been off to a great start so were going to watch him day-to-day and see how he is and get him ready to play when he’s ready.”
