The Cowboys have been through this scenario with Austin before. Austin began the season with a left hamstring injury that dated back to training camp. He aggravated that injury in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers and missed the next two games before returning against the New England Patriots on Oct. 16. He again aggravated the injury against the Seahawks in Week 9 and has been on the shelf since.
The concern appears to be minimal over the injury to wide receiver Laurent Robinson, Austin's replacement. Robinson expects no issues with the shoulder injury that briefly forced him to leave this past Sunday's loss in Arizona.
"It's a little sore but I'll be fine," Robinson told the team's official website. "At first it bothered me some, but after that it was fine. I'll be fine."
