Cowboys WR Miles Austin expected to start

ESPN Dallas - [Full Article]

Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin is expected to practice on Wednesday and baring any setbacks from his recovery from a hamstring injury, is expected to return to the starting lineup for Sunday night's game vs. the New York Giants.

Austin has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury and lost a total of six games due to leg injuries.

Laurent Robinson replaced Austin in the lineup and produced five touchdowns.

"We'll see," Austin said Monday afternoon before walking into the trainer's room at Valley Ranch regarding his status. "Take it one game at a time."

Fantasy Impact: 

This obviously has potential to hurt Laurent Robinson's value, who has really emerged taking over for Austin. Expect Robinson to still be a factor, but probably not a significant fantasy option. If Austin does, indeed, slide right back into a starting spot, he'll at least be a WR2 play going forward. The Cowboys play the Giants on Sunday night.
