Dallas Cowboys receiver Miles Austin is trying to get back to his 2009 form when he had 1,320 yards and 11 touchdowns.
However, injuries have hampered the talented receiver keeping him from ascending into the elite status; instead he’s been descending into pedestrian territory.
In 2012, he had 66 receptions for 943 yards and six touchdowns, and two years removed from being a Pro-Bowler.
Last season he had to battle through injuries that kept him less than 100% and he’s working on his conditioning to try to avoid the same scenario from happening in 2013.
“It’s terrible whenever you get injured or whenever you are hurt,” Austin said, via John Machota of the Dallas News.
“Last year, I missed the last game of the year with a high ankle sprain and that other game I came out of because of the hip. During the year, there’s going to be injuries, you are going to be banged up here and there, but you’ve just got to fight through it.
“I felt like last year I was banged up a few times throughout the season, but I kept going back with it, kept practicing, kept playing.”
“I am going to try to play the best I can,” Austin said. “I would love to lift every part of my game up.”
“There’s not many things you can really control,” Austin said. “You can control your effort, but other things are going to happen. I’ve always been working on my conditioning since I got here. I feel really good right now, hopefully it stays that way.”
