Redskins Vs. Cowboys: Miles Austin Injury Rules Him Out, Dez Bryant's Status Uncertain

It looks like a given that the Dallas Cowboys will take the field against the Washington Redskins next Monday without wide receiver Miles Austin, and they may have to play without Dez Bryant either. Austin suffered a hamstring injury in the Cowboys' win over the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday and has not practiced all week. He will apparently also miss the game on Monday night.

Via Matt Mosley:

Miles Austin won't play Monday, according to a source. Dez's status still up in the air. Today and tomorrow will tell the story on him.

Bryant missed last week's game against the 49ers with his own hamstring issue. If Austin and Bryant cannot play, the Cowboys will rely on Kevin Ogletree, Jesse Holley and Dwayne Harris to pick up the slack at wide receiver.
