DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is feeling positive about Cole Beasley and Tavon Austin's chances of playing in Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Los Angeles Rams. 

Jones gave updates on his receivers injury concerns during his appearance this morning on 105.3 The Fan.

"I'm positive. Very positive about both," he said. "That's easy for me to say, but we'll see. This is the equivalent of a Wednesday. Probably tentative today, but they'll get some work in. Right now, I'm pretty positive about both those guys playing in the game."

Beasley sprained his ankle in Saturday's wild-card win over the Seattle Seahawks. He came on and off the field multiple times before ultimately exciting for the final time in the fourth quarter. 

Austin returned in week 17 against the Giants after missing nine games due to a severe groin injury that continues to hamper him. 

"Tavon's worked really hard to come back from that injury. He made some big plays in the game the other day. He's helped our team, there's no question about it," head coach Jason Garrett said at his Tuesday press conference. 

As for their practice participation Tuesday, Garret says Beasley will sit out despite feeling better, and Austin will be limited.
