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.
