The Dallas Cowboys are becoming something of a walking M.A.S.H. unit. Wide receiver Miles Austin was added to the list of walking wounded against the 49ers on Sunday.

A Cowboys season that was going to have question marks already has even more now.

Injury Update

Austin was on the injury report all week with a knee injury, but this time around, it's a hamstring injury that's the concern.

Via Chris Mortensen's Twitter, the Cowboys are concerned that this will be more than just a one-week injury.

When's He Ready to Return?

Via the same Mortensen tweet, the Cowboys are worried about his status all the way through their bye week, which is Week 5.

Fantasy Impact

Austin was likely a high draft pick in fantasy drafts, so fantasy owners will have a decision to make.

The Cowboys have no shortage of options to help pick up the slack. Dez Bryant will take on more of a role and Kevin Ogletree and one of the other receivers on the roster, Jesse Holley or Dwayne Harris, will become viable in your fantasy lineup.

What They're Saying

Mortensen was the first on this news, as he tweeted the following Sunday night:

Early word on Cowboys injuries not good. Felix Jones separated shoulder. Miles Austin (3 td) pull hammy again - team worried out thru bye wk

Details on this injury are still few, but if that is the prognosis, it doesn't look good for the Cowboys.
