On his last trip to Dallas, receiver Anthony Armstrong posted a career-high 100 receiving yards. This trip didn’t end nearly as well.
Armstrong left the game with a strained hamstring in the second quarter. Trainers immediately began working on him and he spent some time on an exercise bike, but the second-year receiver was unable to return. He was out of uniform and watched the second half from the sidelines.
Armstrong, the team’s No. 3 receiver, failed to notch a single catch in limited action. Monday night’s game, in fact, marked the only time in his career that Armstrong, a native of nearby Carrollton, Tex., failed make a reception.
Second-year receiver Terrence Austin saw an increase in snaps in Armstrong’s place.
