The Dallas Cowboys have had an up-and-down season in 2018, alternating wins and losses for a 3-3 record so far. But things may not be getting better for the passing game in the immediate future as injured WR Tavon Austin could be gone for a while.

According to ProFootballTalk, Tavon Austin going to need a second opinion on a groin injury that has hampered him recently.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that Austin is "more than likely out" for the team's upcoming road game against Washington.

Austin has seven catches for 130 yards and two TDs, but has not even been targeted more than three times in a game this year.

The Cowboys acquired Austin in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams this past April.

Since the start of the NFL season, the Cowboys have used Austin primarily as a punt returner.

Austin has missed only five games in his NFL career since being drafted eight overall by the Rams in 2013.
