Miles Austin will leave it to everyone else to worry about his hamstrings. For now, the Cowboys wide receiver knows he can’t get caught up in his own injury background.
Austin missed much of training camp last year due to hamstring strains and was out for all or part of eight regular season games, never quite running with his usual burst. He has been out since last week with another hamstring injury and is unlikely to play in Monday’s preseason opener.
While the seemingly repetitive nature of the injuries is a red flag, Austin promises that he isn’t stressing about the latest injury, which has been classified only as tightness.
Austin battled hamstring strains throughout last season and it certainly impacted his play. The injury may very well be minor, but it's certainly a concern, especially for quarterback Tony Romo who doesn't enjoy a lot of depth at the WR position.
