I think at some point he would have. Austin was getting time before RW got to Dallas but he would go in make a few plays and get injured. Losing time and reps. No doubt an injury can open the door for a player but that is not just in Dallas. People act as if Dallas is the only team who does this, well wake up watch some other teams instead of putting the micro scope on the Cowboys. There is no doubt what players do Monday through Friday makes a big difference in the eyes of the coach in terms of how quickly they put a player out there and the role that player will take.
