He was targeted five times, and has now secured a pathetic 2-of-8 targets for 35 yards since returning from his hamstring two weeks ago.

Miles Austin played on 48-of-65 snaps in Sunday's win over the Giants.
As expected, Austin was not limited as he made his return from another hamstring issue. He played seven more snaps than Terrance Williams. The concern is that neither wideout was a real part of the gameplan against the Giants as Austin had one catch on three targets while T-Will had one catch on two targets. There's potential for these two to cancel each other out. Austin won't be a quality WR3 on Thanksgiving even though he'll be facing the Raiders at home.
