    IRVING — Miles Austin said Friday that he’s ready to play Sunday night. The Dallas Cowboys veteran wide receiver was inactive the last two games with a strained left hamstring but was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

    “Practiced hard,” Austin said. “Fired up … I’m playing in the game. I feel fine.”

    When further questioned about playing against Washington, Austin repeatedly responded with a simple: “Fired up and excited.”

    I'm not sure, but it might've been @theebs who mentioned that they might hold Miles out until the Redskins game regardless of what was reported. So sounds like the expected rehab time to me.

    I agree on the TW angle. I like our depth here. Miles has a serious threat to his #2 WR role. I am sure this has helped things, perhaps even unknowingly speeding up Miles' recovery.

    I hate to defend Miles over this, but Hamstring problems can be so hard to get over. Especially in a sport like this.

    He can sit behind Williams and Beasley. Or at the very least he should be slot with Williams still starting opposite Dez.

    Other than the fumble the game prior, he's had two very good games. Beyond that, he is supposed to be the future #2 WR on this team. At some point, you have to let the future guy take over. He and Miles don't play the spot anyway. Miles is a slot receiver.

    Yeah, but is Miles really healthy or is he going to be playing at 75% or so?

    Agree! I'm thrilled to have Miles back. The more the merrier. Wishing away another weapon for this offense is like wishing away a wet t-shirt contest.

    He's back, but I would bet money that he re-injures the hamstring again sometime in the next several weeks. I don't know a whole lot about the subject, but from what I have read and watch regarding hamstring injuries, once you start getting them, it becomes easier and easier to get them again. When healed, there is scar tissue on the hamstring which isn't as pliable as the original tissue, and the stress on that tissue increases the chance of re-injury. Miles has had several of these injuries in the past several years, so I'm somewhat expecting a repeat of last year when this nagged him all season.

    Well, hopefully Miles is giving Michael Vick some advice on how to heal quickly from hamstring problems. :)
