Wide receiver Miles Austin hasn’t played up to his potential since he had two great seasons in 2009 and 2010. Not for lack of trying, but due to consistent hamstring injuries and hip problems. To keep Austin healthy, the Dallas Cowboys are protecting him in practice. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, one way the team is protecting Austin is by simply giving him days off. Here’s Austin on the topic. 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 at Valley Ranch, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But I feel good now If Austin can stay healthy, the team will be packing a powerful 1-2 punch at receiver with Dez Bryant finally coming into his own last season. Also, if Tony Romo could stop blowing it in huge moments, the Cowboys could potentially be looking at a wildcard spot at least. Last year all the team had to do was beat the Washington Redskins to win the NFC East. They would of won if…well you know why.     Need NFL Tickets?
