Cowboys’ Austin leaves game with forearm injury

UPDATE: Austin returned to the game on the following series. The FOX broadcast reported X-rays on Austin’s forearm were negative.

Not much is going right for the Cowboys in their Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Saints. Dallas trails 17-0 at the end of the first quarter, and Pro Bowl WR Miles Austin has left the game with a forearm injury.

Austin was injured at the end of a 6-yard reception late in the first quarter. Officials initially ruled that Austin had fumbled on the play, but it was overturned after the Cowboys challenged the call (about the only thing going right for Jason Garrett so far; he’s 2-for-2 on challenges).

Trainers checked out Austin’s right forearm on the sideline, and he soon headed toward the locker room for X-rays. The team announced he’s questionable to return.

Dez Bryant and Roy Williams have been in on the base packages for the Cowboys.
