After scoring three touchdowns in a big overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week two, Austin re-injured a hamstring injury he’s been dealing with since the pre-season. After three weeks of rest, Austin seems prepared to re-claim his role as Dallas’ lead wide receiver.
On the other side of the ball was corner Orlando Scandrick. His high ankle sprain injury has had him sidelined since Week one. Both he and Austin were exited to be back on the field practicing on Monday. Here’s what Scandrick said after today’s session:
“It feels good to be out there with Terrence, Mike , Abe and Gerald. It feels good. We’re excited. We get a chance to show people what we can do and what we are all about. “
Also on the field and participating in Monday’s practice were WR Dez Bryant (thigh), G Kyle Kosier (back), S Gerald Sensabaugh (concussion), S Barry Church (shoulder) and K David Buehler (groin).
Players that were still unable practice were: G Derrick Dockery (knee), DE Jason Hatcher (calf), FB Tony Fiammetta (hamstring) and S Danny McCray (ankle). The first official injury report will be released on Wednesday.
