With a commanding lead over the Rams in the third quarter, the Dallas Cowboys weren’t taking any chances when receiver Miles Austin suffered what looks to be a minor hamstring issue. Austin was held out as a precautionary measure, understandable considering Austin’s long history with that particular part of the leg.
“Miles tweaked a hamstring, and we just want to see how he is,” head coach Jason Garrett said after the 31-7 win, per the Dallas Morning News. “Because we were ahead in the game, we decided to keep him out. We’ll just evaluate it over the next couple of days.”
Austin finished Sunday’s game with just a pair of catches for 22 yards on five targets. Back in 2011, he missed six games due to a series of hamstring injuries.
