Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said WR Miles Austin is ready to play and could have gone two weeks ago vs. the Saints.
Looks like the Cowboys played it safe with Austin and gave him some extra time with the bye in Week 11. Outside of this week and a Week 14 game against Chicago, the matchups are pretty nice for the 'Boys passing game. Austin could still end up being behind Terrence Williams, who should still see plenty of time if Austin comes back. But, Austin isn't a bad deeper league pickup, especially for those more favorable matchups.
