IRVING, Texas – Cowboys receiver Miles Austin was again listed as a full participant in practice Thursday, giving a stronger indication that he will play Sunday against the Redskins.


Austin returned to practice Wednesday after missing the last two games with a sore hamstring. His ability to practice on back-to-back days is a sign that his hamstring has healed.


"Miles coming back gives us extra opportunities to make more plays," fellow receiver Dez Bryant said. "He gives us another big, explosive receiver. It's always great to have Miles back in the lineup."
