Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams will miss Sunday's game versus the Kansas City Chiefs because of cartilage damage to three ribs.

Miles Austin will replace Williams in the starting lineup, but don't be surprised if you see rookie Kevin Ogletree get some playing time.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo doesn't seem to trust any of his receivers other than tight end Jason Witten.  That could change with Ogletree.

It is probably safe to say that Ogletree had the best preseason of any of the receivers working with the first team, and Romo went to him often.  

Ogletree runs precise routes and catches the ball with his hands, which is not often the case with the other Cowboys' receivers. 

In the preseason, it was evident that Romo was in sync with Ogletree, but then again, tight end Martellus Bennett also had a great camp. 

Bennett only has four catches for 40 yards through four games.  

Hopefully Romo finds some trust in both Ogletree and Bennett against the Chiefs.
