What was the assessment of wide receiver Miles Austin from Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett?

“I thought Miles looked OK” Garrett said. “He's clearly working his way back into it. I don't think he looked as explosive as he did early on in the year. He's clearly trying to get his hamstring healthy. He came through the game looked like he was able to function everything we asked him to do. But he's a work in progress coming back.”

Austin missed two games because of a hamstring strain but was able to go through a full week of practice last week. He did not have a catch on four targets from Tony Romo barely missing a touchdown when DeAngelo Hall knocked away a pass in the end zone.

After missing two games in 2011 with a hamstring injury early in the season he returned with a seven-catch 74-yard effort against the New England Patriots. After missing four games with a strain later in the season he came back with a four-catch 63-yard one-touchdown effort against the New York Giants.

With hamstring injuries for most of the last two seasons Garrett wonders if there is a mental hurdle Austin has to clear.
