Dallas Cowboys fans will have to wait at least another week before seeing the entire first-team offense on the field in 2012. Starting quarterback Tony Romo will be without at least one, if not both, of his starting wide receivers on Monday night, as Dez Bryant is questionable to play, and Miles Austin is out for Dallas' preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders.

Bryant, who suffered a mild hamstring strain, is considered a game-time decision. Bryant participated with the starters during Saturday's walkthrough practice and considered himself "fine," but Jason Garrett and the Cowboys might decide to err on the side of caution with their explosive wide receiver.

The Cowboys have already ruled out Austin, who suffered a hamstring strain on Aug. 5. Austin was plagued by hamstring injuries in 2011, and was limited to just 43 receptions in 10 games consequently.

Kevin Ogletree will start in Austin's place.
