Dallas Cowboys Injury Report, Week 11: Miles Austin Injury To Sideline WR Against Redskins

Wide receiver Miles Austin will miss the Dallas Cowboys' game against the Washington Redskins this Sunday, Nov. 20, due to a hamstring injury. The six-year veteran and two-time Pro Bowler sustained it in last week's win against the Buffalo Bills and did not practice at all this week.

Austin ranks among quarterback Tony Romo's favorite targets. At present, he places No. 3 on the team in receptions (28), No. 4 in yards (403), and No. 2 in touchdowns (four). With Austin out, Washington is freer to focus on tight end Jason Witten--Dallas' leading receiver--and wide receiver Dez Bryant.

The Redskins know firsthand how threatening Austin can be; in Sept. 2010, he caught 10 passes for 146 yards and a score, Dallas' lone touchdown of the game. In the next meeting between the teams, Washington limited him to three catches.

Also out for Dallas against Washington: fullback Tony Fiammetta (illness) and cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring). Fiammetta is a blocking specialist, while Jenkins leads the Cowboys with seven passes defensed.

Due to a back injury, second-string quarterback John Kitna did not practice Friday and the team lists him as questionable.
