Austin hasn't missed any time because of hamstrings that not only slowed him in camp the past two years but eventually took away his standing as Tony Romo's top target. The 29-year-old hasn't been as flashy in California as Dez Bryant, Romo's new No. 1. But he's been a steady presence, especially in the slot.
