Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Miles Austin is unlikely to re-sign with the team after the Browns signed WR Brian Hartline Monday, March 9. Hartline is basically a younger version of Austin.
Fantasy Tip: Austin had only 47 catches for 568 yards and two touchdowns for the Browns in 2014. At his advanced age. Austin is unlikely to set the world on fire in the receiving department wherever he lands in free agency. In standard fantasy drafts this fall, Austin probably shouldn't be in consideration for a roster spot.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (kidney) can be a free agent after this year, but he's been told he should be able to play next year after lacerating his kidney Nov. 30. Austin isn't allowed to do any physical activity right now, and he'll have a CAT scan in four weeks to see how his cut is healing. His injury is not career-threatening.
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to say what Austin's fantasy value will be next season since he'll likely be playing for a different team. However, he probably won't be anything more than a WR3 or flex play, depending on where he lands.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (kidney) 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.

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 09:10:55 -0800
Updating a previous item, Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (kidney) remained in a Buffalo hospital overnight Sunday, Nov. 30, due to a kidney injury he suffered in the Week 13 game. Austin had seven catches for a team-high 86 yards in the loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Austin will be able to return in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts, but he's nothing more than a flex play at FantasyScore if he's on the field, and the Colts have been pretty strong against wide receivers this season.
Sun, 30 Nov 2014 14:53:42 -0800
Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (stomach) was taken to the hospital via stretcher after the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills due to abdominal pain.
Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:35:57 -0700
The Cleveland Browns are expected to be active in exploring free-agent wide receivers. Their receiving corps doesn't have much size outside of likely suspended WR Josh Gordon. WRs Miles Austin and Nate Burleson have long injury histories. Cleveland may pursue CFL standout Duron Carter, son of Hall of Famer Cris Carter, once his season is complete.
Fantasy Tip: Andrew Hawkins could be a candidate to emerge out of the slot, but he's anything but tall. We wouldn't throw much at any of the non-Gordon wideouts until Cleveland finalizes its roster and depth chart.
Sat, 26 Jul 2014 07:15:02 -0700

The Cleveland Browns have signed unrestricted free-agent WR Miles Austin (Cowboys) to an undisclosed deal.
Fantasy Tip: There was a day when this would be big news for fantasy, but the days of Austin being a viable weekly fantasy option are over. At best, Austin could be a weekly flex consideration. Given his “unblemished” injury history, he is anything but a safe pick in this year’s drafts.
Wed, 14 May 2014 14:41:13 -0700
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said free-agent WR Miles Austin is absolutely a possibility to return to the team. "We love Miles Austin, we really do," Garrett said.

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 09:28:58 -0800

The Dallas Cowboys are tight against the salary cap, which will likely prevent them from doing anything big in free agency. "It's still tight," vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday afternoon of the salary cap. "I think we always manage through it, but we're still in a tight situation after coming off the penalties ($10 million for violating league rules on WR Miles Austin contract) and the things like that. We're still up against it."
Mon, 06 Jan 2014 10:45:02 -0800

Thu, 21 Nov 2013 14:40:27 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 21.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Austin will finally make his return to game action. He remains a very risky flex play, however, until we see him with a healthy dose of playing time again. Check to see if he's on your waiver wire. He could come in handy in the fantasy playoffs.
Wed, 20 Nov 2013 13:00:57 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams is expected to see a dent in playing time and targets with WR Miles Austin (hamstring) expected back in Week 12. Still, the team has been happy with Williams' maturation. "He's got a real high level of maturity from a work ethic standpoint," receivers coach Derek Dooley said Sunday, Nov. 17. "From an off the field standpoint. From a team standpoint. I think that's one of the things that's contributed to his ability to really have so much success early. He's really made the adjustment from being a college guy to a pro as well as anybody."
Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine the team taking targets away from Williams, who has really blossomed during Austin's absence. Plus, Austin isn't exactly the picture of health, and it might just be a matter of time before he is sidelined again. Williams should be treated as a WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 12.
Sun, 17 Nov 2013 19:51:15 -0800

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 19:56:36 -0800
The Dallas Cowboys are hopeful WR Miles Austin (hamstring) can return soon. He has resumed running and doing some cardio work in rehab, but his return date remains uncertain. The team is hoping time off will allow him to get healthy enough to return to game action.
Fantasy Tip: If Austin is available off the waiver wire in your fantasy league, he might be worth stashing away if you have the roster flexibility. Still, there is no immediate return in sight, so be patient. When he returns, it's possible he might be the No. 3 wideout on the team following the emergence of Terrance Williams.
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 09:58:38 -0800

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is doubtful for Week 10.

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:41:16 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 7.

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 10:14:17 -0800
Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 06:45:44 -0800
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said WR Miles Austin (hamstring) and CB Morris Claiborne (hamstring) are improving but are doubtful for Week 10.

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 08:42:23 -0800
