Wide Receiver Miles Austin is expected to miss at least one game with a strained hamstring. He could possibly miss two games and be out until after the bye week. As a result, the Cowboys re-signed receiver Laurent Robinson, who signed before the Jets game but then injured a hamstring in his first practice. He was cut last week when the Cowboys re-signed fullback Tony Fiammetta. But the Cowboys needed to bring back Robinson because the uncertainty surrounding Austin and receiver Dez Bryant, who missed the 49ers game with a thigh bruise.
The Cowboys cut cornerback Bryan McCann to make room for Robinson.
“He’s ready to go. He’ll be out there,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday on his local radio show on 105.3 The Fan. “He’s someone that we [believe has] a lot of promise, but we won’t go outside our roster at receiver for anybody that will help us in a ballgame. Of course, we are really pleased with the way [Jesse] Holley stepped up.”
