There was a lot of optimism surrounding Austin in the preseason, but he just can't stay healthy. It's hard to imagine the Cowboys keeping Austin around year after year if he's never healthy.
Here is the rest of the injury report news from Friday you need to know:
- Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. He's not expected back with the team for at least another week or two. Falcons left tackle Sam Baker (knee/foot), wide receiver Julio Jones (knee), cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh) and wide receiver Roddy White (high ankle sprain) are questionable.
- Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) is out, which comes as a surprise. Coach Chuck Pagano said Bradshaw suffered a "significant blow." NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport said the team is in a wait-and-see mode with Bradshaw. Look for Trent Richardson to get a big workload against the Jaguars. Safety LaRon Landry (ankle) is out once again.
- Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor officially was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Oakland coach Dennis Allen told reporters that Pryor has made "significant progress" from the concussion he suffered Monday night. Pryor has been cleared to play, and he told reporters Friday that he feels "100 percent."
- The New England Patriots listed tight end Rob Gronkowski (back, arm) and wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) as questionable. There are conflicting reports about whether they will play against the Falcons. UPDATE: Sources told NFL Media's Albert Breer on Saturday that neither Gronkowski nor Amendola traveled with the team to Atlanta for Sunday's game. The Pats later officially downgraded the two players to out.
