According to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t expect wide receiver Miles Austin to be ready until the season opener against the Giants.
“We’re basically just wanting to make sure he’s ready for New York,” Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM per ESPNDallas.com. “That’s where it’s all headed for him. He probably will need some work, just logic tells you, before he gets in the game, but we’re not interested in seeing him (play in the preseason).
“The risks of him getting out there and really competing at this time would I think be overruled (by) the game we have for him being completely healthy in New York. Now, I’m sure he’d be the first to tell you he could go if we were playing New York tonight, and we will have him as ready as he can be for that. So that’s the plan.”
Hopefully Austin will remain healthy once he gets back on the field.
