Player Update: Austin to see plenty of snaps

Tim MacMahon, of, reports Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin will play more than 50 snaps per game after his record performance in Week 5, according to head coach Wade Phillips. "We're going to get him on the field," Phillips said. "His run after the catch is so strong that if you get him the football, he's liable to make a big play. He obviously showed he could do that. We've got to get him in the game. He's got to get his touches." Phillips did not say whether Austin's increased playing time would come at the expense of WR Roy Williams or WR Patrick Crayton.
