Cowboys WR Miles Austin out at least 1 week with another hamstring injury

The Dallas Cowboys can only hope this is not the start of a 2011 repeat. During last year's preseason, wide receiver Miles Austin @MilesAustinIII suffered a hamstring strain. He then battled through strains to both hamstrings during the regular season, causing him to miss six games.
On Saturday, Austin suffered yet another hamstring injury. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said he does not believe the injury is serious, but the team will be "careful" with Austin, who will be out of action for at least one week.

Fantasy Analysis:

When healthy, Austin can be an elite WR2 in fantasy, maybe finding the edge of WR1 range. But these nagging, lingering hamstring injuries should be a source of worry for all drafters out there. It'll be interesting to see if he can come back in a week or if this is something that bugs him for a while, which wouldn't be a shock.
Another problem for the 'Boys is their lack of a dependable No. 3 WR. Once you get past Austin and Dez Bryant, you have the mix of Danny Coale, Dwayne Harris @D_Harris17, Andre Holmes @dreholmes18, and Kevin Ogletree @KOforPrez competing for first cracks. Ogletree is the only one of the bunch who has caught a pass in the NFL. He has a grand total of 25 career receptions.
