Without Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, Cowboys' Receiving Corps is ... Yuck.
The question isn't if Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo is going to play against the Washington Redskins Monday night. (He will.)
It's who the heck is he gonna throw to? (Who knows?)
With Miles Austin out (hamstring) and Dez Bryant iffy (thigh), the Cowboys are in danger of being left ridiculously thin at receiver. As in, without those two starters I think the Cowboys' quartet of receivers will be its worst set of targets in a game since way back in the days of 1-15 in 1989.
Yep, I'm talking forgettable players 22 years ago like James Dixon, Derrick Shepard and Cornell Burbage. The Cowboys have usually had a Michael Irvin or Rocket Ismail or Joey Galloway or Terry Glenn or Keyshawn Johnson or Terrell Owens or Miles Austin or Dez Bryant in their arsenal.
But on Monday night Romo could be throwing to top three receivers with a combined 17 catches and exactly 0 touchdowns.
And the pedigree?
Kevin Ogletree -- Undrafted free agent. 14 catches in 3 years.
Jesse Holley -- Reality-show winner. 3 catches in 2 years.
Dwayne Harris -- 6th-round draft pick. 0 catches in 2 games as a rookie.
Laurent Robinson -- Cut by Chargers in training camp. 89 catches (4 TDs) in four seasons with Falcons, Rams.
In other words, it really, really sucks about that final pre-season game injury to Raymond Radway.
And it means look for 20 passes thrown the way of tight end Jason Witten.
