    IRVING, Texas – The simple fact that Miles Austin didn’t strain a hamstring made this a successful training camp and preseason for the Dallas Cowboys’ $54 million receiver.

    That hasn’t been the case the past couple of seasons, when the wide receiver has been almost constantly nagged by his tender hamstrings. Not coincidentally, Austin hasn’t performed to the level of expectations that come with extra-large paychecks.

    “At the end of the day, I try not to make excuses about anything that happened,” said Austin, who made adjustments to his offseason training regimen in an attempt to prevent further hamstring problems.

    It’s not necessary for Austin to offer his health issues as an excuse. Anyone who watched the Cowboys the last couple of seasons could see that Austin, who missed six games in 2011 and most of two in 2012 due to hamstring strains, faintly resembled the dynamic playmaker of 2009.

    Seeing him look like his self of old in the preseason is encouraging. If Miles is back to form and Dez continues his mission, it will open up this offense for all kinds of possibilities. The Cowboys "are due" a season of good health.

    I hope Miles can stay healthy because even though Dez is a beast he can't do all on his own out there when it comes to catching the ball.

    Miles can actually help a porous OL with some quick passing and YAC's.

    I have high hope for him as well. Thus far he has had no issues with hamstrings and if not mistaken changed his off season work out program because of the hamstring problems.

    If Miles stays healthy, and is actually as explosive as he was in the past, he could really do a lot of damage out of the slot. I dont think it would be surprising at all for he and Dez to both go over 1000 yards if that happens....heck, he was pretty close to doing that last year.
