Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones does not expect receiver Miles Austin to play in the remainder of the preseason.
Austin has not practiced since straining his hamstring Aug. 4, but the Cowboys anticipate that he will be available for the Sept. 5 season opener against the New York Giants. The Cowboys are being especially cautious with Austin because he missed a total of six games due to separate hamstring strains last season.
"We're basically just wanting to make sure he's ready for New York," Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM. "That's where it's all headed for him. He probably will need some work, just logic tells you, before he gets in the game, but we're not interested in seeing him (play in the preseason).
