Cowboys' Austin misses second straight practice

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin did not practice for a second straight day on Thursday as he deals with a strained hamstring.

Austin exited Sunday's 31-7 win over St. Louis due to the injury and was held to just two catches for 22 yards for the game. His status for this weekend's matchup at San Diego is yet to be determined.

Reserve wideout Dwayne Harris, who is bothered by a hip pointer, also has yet to practice this week. If he and Austin aren't able to go against the Chargers, rookie Terrance Williams would likely see the majority of snaps opposite Dez Bryant.

Austin had missed six games in 2011 due to lingering hamstring issues.

All-Pro defensive end DeMarcus Ware, battling a shoulder stinger, was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's session.
