Cowboys close to having Austin, Bryant together

Cowboys receivers Miles Austin and Dez Bryant participated fully

in practice Wednesday, a promising sign that they are close to

playing together again.

Dallas hasn’t had its top two wide receivers in the same game

since the season opener.

Austin, a Pro Bowl selection last season, has missed the last

two games since he aggravated a hamstring injury at the end of

regulation in the Week 2. Bryant missed that game with a bruised

thigh, but has played through the injury since then.

Austin has 14 catches for 233 yards and four touchdowns. Bryant

has 10 catches for 171 yards and three TDs.

With the Cowboys coming off their bye week, Austin and Bryant

had more time to heal before Sunday’s game at New England.
