Miles Austin Could Miss 2-4 Weeks With Hamstring Injury

Monday November 7th, 2011

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin could be out 2-4 weeks, a source told ESPN Dallas. The receiver injured his hamstring this weekend in a 23-13 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

"It just hurts," Austin told the media after the game on Sunday. "It's my hamstring, and it's pretty painful and that's all I know. This one is higher, the other one was lower."

This marks the third occasion this season that the 27-year-old receiver has hurt his hamstring. He initially injured his left hamstring during training camp. While he played in Week 1 for the Cowboys, he re-injured himself in Week 2.

Austin was forced to miss Week 3 and 4 with the injury.

So far this season, Austin has 28 receptions and four receiving touchdowns. Last season, he pulled in 69 catches and seven touchdowns while playing each game.
