Laurent Robinson excited for Miles Austin's return

By Todd Archer

IRVING, Texas -- Even though he had a difficult time putting on his pullover sweatshirt, wide receiver Laurent Robinson does not see a way he will miss Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.

Robinson did not practice Wednesday because of a slightly separated right shoulder suffered in the first half of the overtime loss at Arizona. Robinson returned to the game, sporting extra protection under his shoulder pads.

“I’m going to be ready,” Robinson said. “That’s all that matters.”

Robinson’s role for Sunday’s game figures to change with the return of Miles Austin from a four-game break because of a hamstring injury. In three of the four games without Austin he had at least 72 yards receiving and five touchdown catches.

“I’m excited about him coming back,” Robinson said “It’s another dimension to the receiver position. Miles, Dez [Bryant], [Jason] Witten, myself, [Kevin] Ogletree, [Jesse] Holley, we’re stepping up making plays. It’s just another weapon for us.”
