Miles Austin Injury Update: WR Reportedly Out 2-4 Weeks With Hamstring Injury

According to a report by ESPN's Calvin Watkins, Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl WR Miles Austin will be out 2-4 weeks after aggravating his previously injured hamstring in the second quarter of the Cowboys 23-13 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

The hamstring has bothered Austin all season, as he injured it in training camp and re-aggravated it in Week 2 against San Francisco, keeping him out of Dallas' next two games.

When he has been on the field, asides from his 3 TD effort against the 49ers, the two-time Pro Bowler has been unable to get in a consistent rhythm with QB Tony Romo. Austin has caught 26 passes for 350 yards and 4 TD's this season.

The 6'2 215 WR has already been ruled out of next Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. The Cowboys are likely to be cautious in bringing him back to the field, especially since the schedule gets easier before a brutal December slate that features two games against the NFC East leading New York Giants.

Austin will be replaced in the starting lineup by WR Laurent Robinson, who has caught 24 passes for 368 yards and 2 TD's this season.
