Miles Austin hurts right arm, returns
By Calvin Watkins
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys starting wide receiver Miles Austin left Thursday's game against the New Orleans Saints with a right arm injury.
Austin, who went to the locker room for X-rays, returned to the game after missing a few plays.
The receiver was injured after catching a pass from Jon Kitna. As he was being tackled, the Saints' Danny Clark crashed into him. Austin's drop after the hit was initially ruled a fumble but then overturned on a challenge.
With Austin out, the Cowboys used Dez Bryant and Sam Hurd more in the offense.
