The Rams will be back at home to host the Cowboys in Week 3.
Austin took a brutal helmet-to-helmet to from Mark Barron and landed awkwardly on his right knee in the first half. He was targeted once and was held without a catch before leaving the game. His return is questionable, according to the Buccaneers official website.
"We just have to give him the ball," coach Jeff Fisher said. "Give him the ball in space, because we all know what he can do with it. And so we’re doing some different things. Probably won’t show a whole lot in the preseason, but I’ve very pleased with where he’s at right now."
Even quarterback Sam Bradford said he can see Austin becoming more comfortable with the offense.
"You can see that he’s playing so much faster than he was last year," Bradford said. "Being in the second year of the offense, I think he feels a lot more comfortable with what he’s being asked to do. I don’t think he’s thinking as much, and you really see his speed come out in the way that he’s playing right now."
The No. 8 overall pick from 2013 said he's comfortable with the system now.
"I understand the plays, the depth, the routes, the splits and everything," Austin said. "I just feel good that I can make some plays. Definitely, the game's slowed down for me."
