9-22 -Miles Austin has been downgraded to Doubtful and almost certainly will not play on his injured hamstring. “It is not an injury you can play through” as Arian Foster of the Texans told reporters today regarding his similar ailment. Dez Bryant and Tony Romo remained non-participants in practice as did Felix Jones. Since Dallas faces Washington in the Monday Night Game, you should have a contingency plan in place for these players should they not be able to go, and you can do so this week in some cases without having to waste that player’s spot on Sunday if they are a Game-Time-Decision. Romo owners should target Rex Grossman, who we actually have projected as a decent play this week in our QB RANKINGS. He is available in most leagues, and you’ll be able to wait out the Romo news right up until gametime before plugging him in. Should Felix Jones not be able to go, the obvious recipients of his production would be Tashard Choice and Demarco Murray. Depending on league size, both may be available. We like Murray better out of the two, for no scientific reason, but because true stars tend to come out in Division games, particularly Monday nights at home.  While Tashard Choice has been a serviceable pro and a consumate leader in the Dallas locker room, he has less than 1/10th the home run potential of Murray on a team that will need to develop some semblance of a run game early if Romo can’t go.
