Head coach Sean Garrett said Austin (groin) is expected to return to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Austin has been sidelined by a groin strain for roughly eight weeks, but his return to practice puts him on track to return to game action in the near future. However, there's no guarantee he'll be ready to go in time for the Cowboy's Week 15 date with the Colts this weekend.
Austin (groin) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Austin has yet to even resume practicing since he suffered the right groin strain in an Oct. 14 win over the Jaguars, making it more and more likely that he might not play again this season. For now, the Cowboys will continue to take a week-to-week approach with the wideout, who won't have a prominent role on offense if he's able to make it back for any of the team's final three regular-season contests.
Austin (groin) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports. Austin has yet to take any meaningful step forward in his recovery since straining his right groin Oct. 14 against the Jaguars. With no practice reps in nearly two months, it seems unlikely that Austin will make it back for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Coach Jason Garrett said Austin (groin) won't practice Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports. Austin has already missed six consecutive games with the groin issue and has yet to resume practicing in any fashion, making it surprising the Cowboys have kept him on the 53-man roster this long. Unless he makes some unexpected progress in the next day or two, it'll be safe to pencil him in for another absence Sunday against the Eagles.
Austin (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Saints, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Austin didn't practice in any capacity this week and will be sidelined for a sixth straight game. The 2013 first-round pick likely won't have a significant role on offense awaiting him even if he's able to make it back for any of the Cowboys' final four contests of the regular season.
