IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin won't practice today at Valley Ranch due to a hamstring injury. Austin suffered the injury in last week's victory over the St. Louis Rams.

Austin has a history of hamstring problems but had not dealt with one since last season.

"We can be a little more conservative today," Cowboys general manager Jerry Jones said of Spencer.

Coach Jason Garrett said Austin did not return to the game as a precaution because the Cowboys were ahead by more than two touchdowns. Still the team has to be concerned about Austin's health given his history.

Terrance Williams moves into the starting lineup if Austin's health doesn't improve and Dwayne Harris should also receive more playing time as well.
