Cardinals Vs. Cowboys Injury Report: Miles Austin Out For Dallas, Arizona Healthy

The Arizona Cardinals are approaching the point where they are as healthy as they've been all season. Knock on wood or rub your rabbit feet or whatever you want to do to prevent that previous sentences from turning into a jinx. 

Quarterback Kevin Kolb reported that this foot felt better than at anytime since the injury almost five weeks ago and the Cardinals even had two veteran defender back on the practice field in a limited basis this week.

Safety Kerry Rhodes is recovering from foot surgery and linebacker Joey Porter had his knee scoped. Both are listed as doubtful for Sunday's game but that's an upgrade and shows signs of progress. It's hard to imagine that Porter, however, will win back his starting job from rookie Sam Acho even when he is fully ready to play.

Other Cardinals wounded, TE Todd Heap (hamstring) and LB Reggie Walker (hamstring) are listed as questionable. The probables include CB Michael Adams, TE Rob Housler, KR/RB LaRod Stephens-Howling, RB Beanie Wells. 

For the Cowboys, the picture isn't so rosy. They will be without WR Miles Austin (hamstring) along with RB Tony Fiammetta (illness), QB Jon Kitna (back), DT Josh Price-Brent (knee) and RB Phillip Tanner (hamstring).

Questions include CB Mike Jenkins (hamstring), G Kyle Kosier (foot) and S Gerald Sensabaugh (foot).

Austin is fourth on the Cowboys in receptions with 28 behind TE Jason Witten (56), WR Dez Bryant (38) and WR Laurent Robinson (38).
