Dallas Cowboys Injury Report: Austin, Fiammetta Out, Sensabaugh Questionable

There aren't many surprises on the Dallas Cowboys injury report for their game Thursday against the Miami Dolphins, as Pro Bowl WR Miles Austin and starting FB Tony Fiammetta are both out for the second consecutive week.

Austin has struggled with an injured hamstring all season, and holding him out of Thursday's game will give him a chance to rest for 10 days before the Cowboys Dec. 4 game against Arizona.

WR Laurent Robinson, who has come on strong this year with 31 catches for 475 yards and 5 TD's, will keep Austin's place in the starting line-up.

Fiametta, meanwhile, is still out with an undisclosed illness that continues to baffle the Cowboys medical staff. He's been a spark-plug for Dallas' ground game, which struggled last week in his absence.

Dallas will probably use more two tight end sets against Miami, while third-string TE John Phillips will see time as the lead blocking back for RB DeMarco Murray.

Safety Gerald Sensabaugh has missed practice all week with a sprained foot, and if he can't go on Thursday, he'll be replaced by Barry Church, who would be making his first NFL start.

Additionally, backup QB Jon Kitna is out with a back injury, while RB Felix Jones (ankle) and G Kyle Kosier (foot) are expected to play despite being listed as questionable.
