    Both Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett have said that promoting Dwayne Harris from the practice squad to the active roster was a viable option as Miles Austin recovers from an aggravated hamstring injury--and Jones made clear in a radio interview this week that the team wouldn’t look for receiver help outside of the organization--but no move has been made as of today.

    "I think it's a last-minute decision," Harris said on Wednesday, per the Dallas Morning News. "I'm still on the bubble on if I'm going to be active this week or not. So I'm just going out and working hard every day. Just taking it day-by-day. If they bring me up, that's good. If not, I'm going to continue to work hard."

    A sixth round pick out of Eastern Carolina, Harris impressed coaches both on offense and special teams in the preseason. But in the regular season, he has played just one snap on offense, while serving mainly as a return man.

    Harris, who was waived earlier in the year to make room for Montrae Holland, has been on the practice squad since clearing waivers on October 20.
