Injuries continue to plague Miles Austin.

The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver missed six games in 2011 because of an injury, and in the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he became even more familiar with the team’s training staff.

Tony Romo’s prayers were answered.

ESPN’s John Clayton reported an update on Austin’s injury that’ll trigger Cowboys fans to breathe a sigh of relief.

After Romo played through his brutal rib injury last season, there was no way Austin wasn’t going to tough it out vs. the Bucs, right?


John Clayton of ESPN reported on Austin's rib injury via Twitter.

ESPN’s Matt Mosley also added details about Austin’s current status.

Losing Austin for a long period of time would devastate the Cowboys’ offense. In the first two weeks of the season, he hauled in nine balls for 136 yards and two touchdowns. In Week 3, before being forced to the sideline, he recorded four receptions for 90 yards.

Dez Bryant has more than enough talent to carry the workload through the air as a No. 1 receiver, but has yet to show that ability on the field. While Bryant has displayed nothing but inconsistency, Austin has been a reliable target for years.

Tony Romo is praying the X-ray results come up negative.
