The Eagles released wide receiver Miles Austin a day after he was inactive for the first time this season. The team announced the move Monday, but didn't yet make a corresponding move to replace Austin's spot on the 53-man roster. Rookie Jonathan Krause, who was signed off the practice squad before the Lions game, got the nod ahead of Austin on Sunday against the Patriots. He had one catch for four yards. The Eagles had seven receivers - a large number - on the roster before Austin's release.

There was sadness within him, nothing more or less. When he learned that Evan Murray, a 17-year-old quarterback at Warren Hills Regional High School in Washington, N.J., had died from football last Friday night, Miles Austin did not tie the tragedy to any aspect of his own life, his own experiences in the sport. He could have. The connections were apparent. During a game against Summit High School, Murray rose from the ground after a tackle, his teammates steadying him as he wobbled, and walked off the field before collapsing on the sideline.

Even after he noticed the blood in his urine, Miles Austin didn't consider that he might have played the last football game of his life. This was Nov. 30 in Orchard Park, N.Y., against the Buffalo Bills. Austin was playing for the Cleveland Browns, and he had caught a pass from Johnny Manziel - the first completion of Manziel's career - and turned up the field toward the left sideline. He tried to hurdle a defensive player, and when Austin landed on the ground, another Bills player landed on top of him. He didn't sense much pain in that instant, but after the Browns' 26-10 loss, his abdomen began to ache, as if he were having an episode of agita.

WHEN THE Eagles signed Rasheed Bailey as an undrafted free agent in early May, it made for a nice, sweet, local-boy-makes-good story, even if the kid's chances of making it to the 2015 regular-season starting line with the team seemed somewhere between slim and none. The Roxborough High product had been an NCAA Division III pass-catching scourge at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, leading the nation in receiving yards (1,707) and touchdown catches (19). Set the school record for career receiving yards (3,138)

Monmouth took no prisoners yesterday. The top-ranked Hawks wiped out La Salle, 50-0, on homecoming day at McCarthy Stadium. La Salle (2-6) moved the ball well all afternoon but committed six turnovers - five interceptions and a fumble. The Hawks also blocked two La Salle field-goal attempts. Ed Marynowitz, the Explorers' sophomore quarterback, passed for 243 yards, completing 23 of 36 attempts. Junior Ken Triboletti gained 105 yards on 21 carries for the Explorers.

Redskins at Cowboys 8:35 p.m., ESPN Line: Cowboys by 51/2 Skinny: Despite a cracked rib that led to a punctured lung last Sunday, QB Tony Romo seems to have healed enough to start for the Cowboys. Washington (2-0) and Dallas (1-1) are vying for early supremacy in the NFC East. The Cowboys' chances are more tenuous, especially because they are so banged up. Even if Romo plays, he will be without receiver Miles Austin (hamstring) and could be without receiver Dez Bryant (thigh)

TAMPA, Fla. - Tony Romo was nearly flawless in getting the Dallas Cowboys back on track in the NFC East. Romo threw for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth score Saturday night, helping the first-place Cowboys beat the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-15. Dallas stopped a two-game losing streak in which it blew fourth-quarter leads to allow a seemingly solid grip on the division lead to slip away. The victory gave the Cowboys (8-6) a half-game lead over New York.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree came home and introduced himself to the nation by ruining opening night for the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. After three years of performing in relative anonymity, Ogletree enjoyed a coming-out party by catching eight passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns as the Cowboys started the NFL season with Wednesday's 24-17 win over the Giants at MetLife Stadium. Coming off an 8-8 record, the Cowboys are considered a challenger to the Eagles and the Giants in what should again be a competitive NFC East.

SAN FRANCISCO - The Dallas Cowboys' 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers had a Holley-wood ending. Jesse Holley, who got a chance with the Cowboys only after winning Michael Irvin's reality show three years ago, had never had an NFL catch until Sunday. He played in overtime only because Miles Austin had been injured on the last play from scrimmage in regulation. Yet, Holley (three catches, 96 yards) made the biggest play of the game with a 77-yard catch-and-run on the Cowboys' first play from scrimmage in the extra period.

What we're talking about after the Eagles' loss to the Cowboys: . To your health: Asante Samuel whiffed trying to jump a route on the 10-yard TD pass to Jason Witten that finished the Cowboys' opening drive, but Samuel used the same risky technique and tipped the pass to Patrick Crayton that Joselio Hanson intercepted to thwart a second long drive . . . then got burned again against Miles Austin on a 40-yard gainer. . Miss Communication: It looked like Sheldon Brown blew a coverage on Patrick Crayton's TD catch, but a receiver flashed in front of Brown as QB Tony Romo pumped, and safety Quintin Mikell appeared to be the one who bit and did not cover Crayton deeper into the play.

NELSON AGHOLOR'S NFL debut probably was not everything he'd always dreamed of, or everything that NFL observers might have expected from the Eagles' first-round rookie. Agholor played 59 snaps, second among Eagles receivers only to Jordan Matthews, who was on the field for 63 of a possible 74. But Matthews caught 10 passes for 102 yards, on 13 targets. Agholor was targeted twice, caught one pass, for 5 yards. Fans saw in the preseason, when Agholor put on the jets and took his first catch to the house, 34 yards against the Ravens, that the rookie has the potential to make game-breaking plays.

Miles Austin was virtually assured a roster spot with the Eagles after he signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with $1 million guaranteed. The team under Chip Kelly has eaten contracts before just to get rid of players it no longer wanted. But to part with one so soon after acquiring him, especially when Austin has done little to suggest he doesn't belong, would be unprecedented. But the wide receiver hasn't stood out enough, or even been given the opportunity to stand out, to fully comprehend yet what his role on the Eagles will be this season.

The best that can be said about the free-agent contracts Chip Kelly handed out this offseason is that he wants to win now. The Eagles coach identified players he wanted for his systems and made bold moves to acquire them over the last month. But that often meant overpaying when the market suggested he could have gotten free agents such as Byron Maxwell and DeMarco Murray for less. Kelly paid Maxwell more than $2 million more a year than any other team was willing to pay for the cornerback.

This article has been corrected. An earlier version said the Eagles' seven new players missed an average of 12 games last season. Chip Kelly continues to hand out money to players with extensive injury histories. The Eagles agreed to terms Monday on a one-year contract with wide receiver Miles Austin and extended and restructured linebacker DeMeco Ryans' contract through 2016. The oft-injured Austin has to pass a physical Tuesday before he can sign a deal that is worth $2.3 million and with $700,000 in incentives, an NFL source said.

LIKE THE NFL'S endangered extra point, physicals given to players to make signings and trades official tend to be almost automatic. That might not be the case when Eagles doctors give wideout Miles Austin the once-over, though. Austin, who turns 31 in June, last played a full NFL season in 2012 and has a chronic hamstring problem. The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported yesterday that the Birds have signed Austin to a 1-year deal worth $2.3 million, with another $700,000 possible in incentives.

Is Cam Newton the most frustrating quarterback in Fantasyland? Not to me. Not anymore, at least. You see, I drafted him last year, on the heels of his stellar rookie campaign. Newton got off to a slow start, accumulating just 10 total TDs over the first half of the 2012 season with relatively modest passing and rushing statistics to offset his scoring deficit. In fact, through his first eight games, Newton had amassed 464 fewer yards and eight fewer TDs in 2012 vs. 2011. To be sure, he came on fairly strong over the second half; but I had long stopped risking him in my starting lineup by then.
