Miles Austin injury: Cowboys WR will reportedly play in Week 13

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The receiver has 49 receptions for 727 yards and four touchdowns, trailing Dez Bryant for the team lead in each category.

After suffering a game-ending injury in the first quarter of a Thanksgiving Day game against the Redskins, wide receiverMiles Austin is expected to return to the lineup for the Cowboys when the team hosts the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a report from ESPN's Ed Werder.

Austin did not return after suffering hip and back injuries, finishing a game he started in with no receptions for the first time since a Week 3 game against the Panthers in 2009. Through 11 games, Austin has 49 receptions for 727 yards and four touchdowns, trailing Dez Bryant in each of the three categories.

In Week 13, the Cowboys will look to give the Eagles an eighth consecutive loss just three weeks after the division rivals faced each other in Week 10. The Cowboys scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to earn a 38-23 victory in the game.

Also returning to the field for Sunday's game could be DeMarco Murray, as the Cowboys running back will reportedly attempt to practice Wednesday for the first time since suffering a foot sprain in Week 5.
