Miles Austin To Get MRI On Hamstring

Monday November 7th, 2011

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin will get an MRI Monday on his injured hamstring, according to a report filed by ESPN. Austin has been having issues with his hamstring since the summer.

This is a different injury than the hamstring issue which kept him out of two games already this season. That injury was his left injury, the more recent injury is his right leg.

"It's really early," Austin told ESPN after the game. "I need to get an MRI and wake up in the morning and see how I feel. I can't say I'll be back and practicing on Thursday or playing. It's very surprising. You don't expect something like that but the other guys stepped up as they should and I'm going to try to get back. It's paramount I try to get back as quick as I can."
