The Cleveland Browns placed WR Miles Austin (hip) on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: As expected, another season has been cut short for Austin, who notched season highs in receptions (7) and yardage (86) in his final game Sunday. Rookie free agent Taylor Gabriel and Travis Benjamin should get a few more looks in Austin's absence, but Josh Gordon and Andrew Hawkins remain the Browns' top WR targets.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (kidney) will spend a third night in a Buffalo hospital Tuesday, Dec. 2, due to the kidney injury suffered in the Week 12 loss against the Buffalo Bills. The team said he is being kept for precautionary reasons, but has not disclosed any other details of his injury.
Huddle Up: Certainly sounds like Austin is at least out for Week 14 and possibly longer depending on the exact nature of the injury.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin will stay in a hospital Monday night while recovering from a kidney injury he sustained Sunday, Nov. 30. It is not known when Austin is expected to be released, according to head coach Mike Pettine.
Huddle Up: Austin is coming off a season-high 7 catches for 86 yards in the Week 13 loss to the Bills. It definitely sounds like he'll be a longshot to play, though, Sunday against the Colts.

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.
