Cowboys WR Austin again sidelined with hamstring injury

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin isn't expected to play this weekend against the Buffalo Bills and could be out several weeks after injuring his right hamstring during Sunday's 23-13 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, according to a league source.

Austin was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Monday, according to multiple published reports.

"It's paramount I get back as fast as I can," the receiver told The Dallas Morning News.

Miles pulled up lame following a 37-yard catch down the sideline early in the second quarter. He didn't return and spent the second half on the sideline in street clothes.

"Randomly on that one play, my other hammy just grabbed up, out of nowhere," Austin said after the game. "It's hard to describe how it feels, but it really hurts."

This isn't the first hamstring injury Austin has endured this season. He battled left hamstring problems during training camp and then aggravated the injury during the Cowboys' Week 2 win over the San Francisco 49ers and didn't return to the starting lineup until Oct. 16 against the New England Patriots.
