Austin ready to go against Colts
By Mike Piellucci
Miles Austin says that his sore right forearm won’t keep him out of the Cowboys’ December 5th clash with the Colts.
The Cowboys wide receiver originally suffered the injury in the first quarter of Dallas’ Thanksgiving Day loss to New Orleans, when Saints linebacker Danny Clark’s knee slammed into his elbow.
Despite being in some pain, Austin didn’t spend long on the sidelines.
“We got some X-rays after it happened and they said there wasn’t a break so I just went back in,” he said.
After he returned, Austin scored the first rushing touchdown of his career on a 60-yard reverse in the third quarter. Ever humble, he credited the score to good blocking.
“I just got to the corner and the guys did a great job blocking out there so I just had to keep running,” Austin concluded.
