Wade Phillips would not use the term "starter" when talking about Miles Austin, but he said Austin will see just as much playing time on Oct. 25 against Atlanta as he did Sunday at KC.
Maybe it's a semantics game, but Austin's 10-catch, 250-yard, 2-touchdown game against the Chiefs has propelled him into the lineup, starting or otherwise.
"He did the things we thought he could," Phillips said. "You're not going to make 250 yards every time, but he's going to have a chance to make big plays again."
If Austin is a starter, it would likely be at Patrick Crayton's spot even though Austin replaced Roy Williams Sunday. With a $45 million contract, it would be difficult to sit Williams for sure.
