UPDATE: Miles Austin out with hip strain


ARLINGTON, Texas -- Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin suffered a right hip strain in the first quarter Thursday vs. Washington and will not return.

Austin was hurt on the first play of the Cowboys’ second series. He was replaced by Dwayne Harris in the base offense, but a prolonged absence would affect the Cowboys’ offense for the rest of the game.

Safety Danny McCray suffered a hip strain Sunday vs. Cleveland but was able to return.

The Cowboys are already without Kevin Ogletree because of a concussion. The other backup receivers are Cole Beasley and Andre Holmes. They have combined for six catches for 40 yards on the season.

Austin has been bothered the last two seasons by hamstring injuries. He is tied for the team lead in touchdown catches with four. He entered Thursday’s game with 49 catches for 727 yards.
