EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ
With the Cowboys' offensive success against Denver last week, how do you think the Cowboys will implement Miles Austin back into the offense against Washington?
Rowan:I’d imagine he’ll be full go. The Cowboys demonstrated they can be effective in the passing game without him last week, and he’ll be anxious to show that what he can bring is still extremely useful. If you’ll remember a week prior against the Chargers, everyone was clamoring for Austin to be back. The Cowboys will use him as they typically have and feel he’s at least their second best receiver when healthy. Maybe he gets a handful fewer snaps than normal, but he’ll be running across the middle as usual.
David:With Williams showing what he's capable of down the field last week -- both as a deep threat and a mid-range receiver -- I'd imagine Austin can fill the role of exploiting the defense underneath while the secondary focuses elsewhere. Like we've seen all season with injuries, though, I think the coaching staff will ease him into the process. With his health a consistent question mark, I'd try to keep him closer to the line of scrimmage.
