Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 10.
Huddle Up: Yeah, sure, it's June 10 -- not Sept. 10 -- but as we've seen over recent seasons, Austin's hammy issues seemingly know no bounds.

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said the team is being cautious with WR Miles Austin this offseason, because he has dealt with hamstring injuries the last few seasons.
Huddle Up: It wouldn't be unreasonable for the Browns to encase Austin in bubble wrap until September, as he's been unable to stay healthy and on the field. With Josh Gordon out, the Browns will need a contribution from Austin to field a decent passing game.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Wednesday, May 21.
Huddle Up: Raise your hand if you're surprised Austin is nicked already. With Josh Gordon out, Austin has an opportunity to be a fantasy factor once again in Cleveland--but he'll need to stay on the field to do so.

The Cleveland Browns have signed unrestricted free-agent WRs Miles Austin (Cowboys) and Earl Bennett (Bears) to undisclosed deals.
Huddle Up: It's officially panic time in Cleveland with Josh Gordon's possible year-long suspension hanging over the franchise, and the Browns swept up a pair of wideouts who combined for 56 catches, 487 yards and 4 TDs last season -- a fraction of Gordon's monster year (87-1,646-9).

The Dallas Cowboys have released WR Miles Austin.
Huddle Up: The oft-injured Austin had lost his starting gig and was overpaid as a backup. In the right situation he could become a fantasy factor once again, but he comes with a hugh red flag given his injury history.

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin may be a June 1 casualty of the salary cap instead of being cut right away. Even though Austin could be cut loose in the next few weeks, the team could save $5.5 million by designating him as a June 1 cut instead.
Huddle Up: Seems like a no-brainer to save the $5.5 mil and designate Austin as a June 1 cut; either way, he's likely played his last game as a Cowboy.

The Dallas Cowboys are not expected to offer WR Miles Austin a pay cut in order to remain with the team. The team is expected to release Austin at some point this offseason.
Huddle Up: It seems as if Austin's 8-year run is over in Big D as the Cowboys appear set to go with second-year wideout Terrance Williams opposite Dez Bryant. Also look for the team to add another WR via free agency or the draft.

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was able to take part in a full practice session Monday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Austin did record a reception in Week 12 for the first time in more than 2 months, but it was a reception, singular, for 17 yards on 3 targets. He's not worth a fantasy start until he shows he's going to have some semblance of his old role in the Dallas offense.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is ready to return.
Huddle Up: We all know what Jerry says in Big D usually has a way of happening so look for Austin back in the mix Sunday as he seeks his first reception since Week 3. Rookie Terrance Williams and, of course, Dez Bryant are several pegs above him in the team's fantasy WR pecking order.

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is expected to return for the Week 12 game against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Austin has been threatening to return for a while, but he's been pushed to the side by Terrance Williams. Going forward about the only thing Austin does is dings Williams' fantasy value, as there's a threat he takes some looks away from the rookie.

The Dallas Cowboys expect to get WR Miles Austin (hamstring), S J.J. Wilcox (knee), DT Jason Hatcher (neck) and CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring) back after their Week 11 bye.
Huddle Up: Austin hasn't caught a pass since Week 3, and with the emergence of rookie wideout Terrance Williams (9-498-5) look for him to assume the team's No. 3 WR role after the Cowboys' bye.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said WR Miles Austin (hamstring) and CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring) are improving but are doubtful for Week 10.
Huddle Up: It's quickly become a lost season for Austin, who hasn't caught a pass since Week 3. If you haven't moved on yet, what's the holdup?

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) was not practicing Thursday, Oct. 31, in the portion of practice open to the media. Austin was going through rehab exercises on a side field.
Huddle Up: It's been a lost season for Austin, who hasn't caught a pass since Week 3. In the meantime, rookie Terrance Williams has stepped in rather nicely in his stead and it's clear that he's going to figure in the team's plans even when -- and/or if -- Austin finally is healthy enough to contribute.
