Miles Austin scheduled for MRI on the other hamstring

A tough season for Miles Austin got a lot more difficult for the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver on Sunday.

The wide receiver suffered a right hamstring injury in Sunday’s 23-13 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Texas. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI today to determine the extent of the injury, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Austin missed two games earlier this season with an injured left hamstring. This happens from time to time when athletes come back from a pulled hamstring. Their body isn’t balanced properly and then the other hamstring is injured.

"It's paramount I get back as fast as I can," Austin said. "Randomly on that one play, my other hammy just grabbed up, out of nowhere. It's hard to describe how it feels, but it really hurts.”

Austin originally injured his hamstring in training camp. This is what happens. Sometimes these injuries literally linger for an entire season. Hopefully, the MRI will bring encouraging news.
