Dallas Cowboys receiver Miles Austin just can't stay healthy for long periods of time, and that's something the team will try to prevent from happening in 2013. At least that's the plan. They're gave him days off here and there during OTAs and minicamp, and will likely to the same when training camp begins in July. Then comes the hard part - the real NFL season where you don't get games off and defenses are trying to take your head off. "It's one of those things where, you can't not do it and then do it and tell the difference," he said last week, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "But I feel good now." Austin spent the offseason working on strengthening his two problem areas - his hamstrings, in the hope that they give him issues during the 2013 season. Per Dan Hanzus of NFL.com: ' Austin established himself as a star during the 2009 and 2010 seasons, averaging 75 catches for 1,181 yards and nine touchdowns. His production has slumped in the years since. He played in 16 games in 2012, but he was slowed by leg and hip issues. A nasty hamstring pull cost him six games in 2011. Dez Bryant's emergence as a star gives the Cowboys a potentially scary 1-2 combo at wide receiver if Austin can regain past form. With Austin not yet over the hill, it's certainly possible. '
