Dallas Cowboy wide receiver Miles Austin will likely miss the entire preseason due to his injured hamstring. As reported on PFT.com, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters after the game that Austin is “I wouldn’t discount it, but he’s not one of the ones that I have coming back.”

Austin was limited to just 10 games last season due to a hamstring injury, and could continue to be limited in 2012. The former Monmouth star had a breakout season in 2009, with 1320 yards on 81 catches in just 9 starts for the Cowboys.

From a fantasy perspective, Austin could be an excellent value at his current ADP of 46th overall. He and quarterback Tony Romo have an excellent rapport and the Cowboys should be a high power offense in 2012. However, if his hamstring continues to hinder his production, he could be a waste of a fourth round pick.

Cowboys WR Cole Beasley throws up during preseason game

Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley let loose during Dallas’ preseason game against the Chargers on Saturday night. And by let loose, we mean he vomited all over as he was coming off the field in the fourth quarter. It was nice of Dez Bryant to offer him a helping hand, but we can’t blame him for backing away. Nobody wants a piece of that. And no truth to the rumor that Beasley...

DeMarco Murray came alive in his rookie season in 2011. Murray put up 236 yards in his breakout performance (vs. St. Louis).  It’s not four touchdowns in a single game, but Al Bundy would be proud of the display Murray put on last year.   Sadly, Murray went down with injury and Felix Jones handled the run-game responsibilities in typical mediocre fashion.    Jones is coming...

Dallas Cowboys: James Hanna Has Bright Future in Big D

With the 186th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected tight end James Hanna out of Oklahoma. It's only been two preseason games, but I'm already loving Hanna.
