Dallas Cowboys rumors have receiver Miles Austin out for the game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday (Sept. 29). According to a report from ESPN on Friday (Sept. 27), Austin continues to miss practice with the team due to a strained hamstring. The injury took place against the St. Louis Rams in Week 3 and the team isn't going to press him into playing this week.
So far it hasn't been a great season for Austin, as he has 15 catches for 125 yards and no touchdowns. Fantasy football owners have not received a good return on their investment with him this season and that looks to continue at the very least through Week 4. It's possible that he could be out even longer if the hamstring injury doesn't start responding better to treatment from the staff.
It looks like rookie Terrance Williams will take most of the targets that would have been intended for Austin, possibly making him an interesting fantasy option in deeper leagues. He only has five catches for 60 yards so far this season, but it's possible that Tony Romo could look his direction against a notoriously weak secondary from the Chargers.
These Dallas Cowboys rumors might be the perfect opportunity for a fantasy football owner with a weak group of receivers to take a risk on Williams. Romo is definitely going to favor Dez Bryant and Jason Witten over him, but the opportunity to get a few balls in the end zone will definitely exist this week.
